Time to go... early
View from the office window
A snowy Oslo, brrr looks cold too
Heathrow Express, it seems longer to do it this way but I don’t think it is.. or is it... or maybe not?
It’s the first one of 2018, on a wobbly train to London then Heathrow... Nottingham station fire meant going from EM parkway and the weather in Oslo is looking bad!!
Not really the time one should be up, but another 4.40am alarm call doesn't do the trick for vitality!
Now a hotel..
Copenhagen hello.. it's um late um..
Still not left the UK, waiting to board!
Birmingham airport for tea, fingers crossed for Copenhagen!
Well, home for a few hours before a trip to Birmingham airport. Let's see if I can get to Oslo
Cancelled flight, so leaving Heathrow airport... Birmingham tonight!
What a journey on a Sunday afternoon!
Marco Pierre White, let's see if he can chef better than Sarah this year..
With Willis in the big building..
Not a bad view!
Off for a short meeting in London..
Homeward bound pre-coffee ordering experience. It's like the TV advert 'just a black coffee with milk please'...'eh?'
Off off away!
POD parking. Space age maaan
Hotel with major parking madness, close to the airport with no issues. Not on my own for a work trip. That's cool!
A quick cup of tea visit to MCAX. Roads were clear on the way down though..
Yum? Sleep? Home?
Dinner in the hotel, owned by the Prince of Denmark..
Dinner in Tonder in a pub with a sense of humour... yey
Had 40mins to get through the airport, dropped a lung.. thank gif I didn't do my rowing session add on at the gym this morning...
Will they let me on for a ride?
The gods looked favourably on me. Business dinner for one!
We land late, it's going to be in the hands of the gods to catch the Nottingham train.
Finished one exercise in Norway, now off to another in Oslo. Could have been going home on a Wednesday evening, oh well..
The pictures of the hotel on line do not match what we have found.. luckily it is only for a couple of nights.
Monday morning is a travel morning, oh how a schedule that looks ok gets crammed by osmosis. My advice has been 'say no' to extra meetings...
A snack and tasting.. is it team building?
Time to go again...
That's a queue for passport control... rediculous
In the mix again on the way home.
Start of the tour on a sunny day in Rome
Hot on the bus off to play in Rome
Ryanair worked out perfectly, on time, easy? With no queue at the security. Great taxi driver from the airport
A very busy day here. Lots of 'oldies' off for some Sun plus a surprising number of kids, above school age..
Don't be grumpy, don't be grumpy...
New office for Hydro....?
Nice Sapa office! Will it be my last trip there?
Now this is the correct hotel!
Close but no cigar! Wrong Radisson... short taxi and I arrive.
I think I have been here before, off to Oslo this time. A quick trip as they say..
This could be last time in the Sapa office!!
Breakfast in the LH lounge courtesy of Lars. Met the most grumpy desk clark in the history of airline lounges... good morning too.
Lovely offices here
Cracking view... I didn't choose this hotel.
It's an autobahn on the way to Ulm, where I hear you say? I dunno.
Luton airport, rated the worst in the U.K.!
It was supposed to be Sunny.. nice city though
The Wizz-Air boarding 'cage'...
First leg nearly completed.
And the merry-go-round starts again!! Monday morning and off to Poland... let's see
Sometimes there are quiet, relaxed places to have a meeting... it's my first time back here in many years.
My first trip to Boston airport and my opinion is the customer service 'sucks', but then I am tired, weary and feeling rubbish!
The strangest place so far, it's like Stepford wives.. very odd clientele but nice food. Not sure we fit in really.
No smoking or guns
Not the most amazing of views but it was after a decent nights sleep..
Never been upstairs before!
That took a long time to get here. British trains on a Sunday.. nightmare.. it's still hot and my enthusiasm has not risen yet
It's hot, it's a Sunday, no-one is happy, it will be a long day, but hey-ho!
Not a bad hotel.... or a place for lunch. I believe it's St Anton over there.
It's 'O' for oh my god it's early! Why do I do this to myself?
Now it rains!
Dinner in the main square of Toulouse, great place and now Sunny. Don't want the English rain again this week.
Wagamama for lunch pre-trip to Toulouse, then onwards through Europe for a series of meetings... crazy!
There are worse places to sit and wait for a flight!!! On the deck, in the sun (whilst a bit hot), looking over the runway.
I guess we are ok?
Someone turned the heating up!
There was a man from Dallas, who went to Buckingham Palace!
Coolest Bridge ever
Washington State side
The Dalles, there's a place here called that the workers call 'Disney-Land', it's not a theme park!
The bridge of the gods, Oregon side. It's still quite early.
Columbia River Highway 84
Salty's for dinner... amazing place
Planes! This is a long trip and I'm not sure how prepared am. Some films to watch though.
Sometimes if you take a moment to look up!
Here we go again... off to see if I can find 'Larry'. Dropped JK, did silly faces, got on bus! Tired already.
Me my Pret porridge and another morning flight. Certainly better so far than the BA-Heathrow experience last week! It could be a new start in my job too...
No evil mastermind or James Bond seen, but an amazing place.
Nice view from the Zurich Development Centre... Nice hot day too. It's like an evil Spa mastermind hideout and I am expecting to see James Bond!
Coffee..airport..groundhog-day..its Sunny in Zurich apparently..Vitamin D..
I am home and barely awake
Toodlepip to Montreal!
They weren't lucky
Tommy Cafe. This place is epic, although the clientele is a little younger than us
Monday dinners away are becoming a habit of beer and burgers.. not good for the waist-line
I didn't get the scenic room in Montreal.
My first time in T2 at Heathrow, they are setting the standard for airport departures here.
Oh look, Heathrow Express.. it's still cold, where is spring? Colder in Montreal I believe.
Off again on another cold May morning.. ohh la la. It's Montreal this week to survey a site and coach a colleague. For once I can fly direct to the destination, stay in one hotel, and then fly home again...
Not sure of the era on this one...?
If it wasn't for the train driver 'hammering' his horn all night I may have had some sleep! Holiday Inn Sioux Falls.
Sioux Falls, the centre of.......?
Another transatlantic.. but with a good movie selection for once..
Heathrow at early O'clock
Heathrow on a nice Sunny day having Wagamama for lunch!
The joys of BR...
Not long to go..
Kalamazoo 'international' airport
Don't overtake in a school zone
T3 on the way to Kalamazoo..
Ready to go
Breakfast done, relax time in the lounge before the big metal tube.
Heathrow Express.. one step closer to breakfast
Windlesham Golf Club and a little sun.
That's a very large, large Latte
Off to Banbury
Through Brussels security.. quickly..
Ah, first flight of 2017 delayed.
A quiet East Miss airport
Ready for Belgium. Not sure the late flight was such a good idea after all.
Lovely misty and cold morning
Very much against the norm of 'never eat in the hotel' tonight I eat in the hotel!!!
Coffee in the office ready for the second work trip of 2017.
