web Musings of The Global Traveller

Firstly, an apology for the lack of blogging lately. I've been on a very hectic schedule across 5 continents and 11 countries. I should get back on track later this week.

Secondly, an update to the delay I mentioned. The airline gave us a room at local hotel (about 15 minutes by taxi, the nearest reasonable hotel), a credit for a meal plus 3 minute phone call, and transport to and from the hotel. Thumbs up so far. They rebooked our wakeup calls to a ridiculously early hour of the morning (only a few hours sleep possible) and cancelled the pre-ordered taxis, replacing with a bus for all the non-locals. When we arrived back at the airport immigration wasn't yet open so we had to wait a while, a sign we got back too early. Thumbs down.

The flight itself was okay although I think we lost a meal (went from supper plus breakfast to breakfast only with some odd suppery choices!). The crew were great - they had the same disrupted schedule as the rest of us.

I'll be back soon.
