Flight from London

As many of you who know me will no doubt be aware, I am frequently late for appointments: with this in mind I thought I should try to aim to leave for Gatwick from London at least 4 hours before my flight — of course this meant I was rushing all day, and then sat around at the airport for a few hours with nothing to do, as I had arrived far too early!

After watching the Bourne Supremacy (brilliant movie) on Emirates EK10 (great airline), I managed to sleep very well with the help of some flight earplugs (top tip for flying: you sleep better, and your ears don’t pop so often)

Dubai airport is outrageously over-the-top, but as I walked into the waiting area for the flight to Delhi and saw the change in the types of traveller, it really became apparent that my trip had begun. While waiting, I spoke with an Indian-American and a British woman living in Orissa, who both told me to “be careful”. Compounded with everyone else who had told me that in the past few weeks, I did begin to feel nervous.
