Do you ever do something extremely stupid and wish you had someone to blame other than yourself? Ug…I had a few of those moments today…
I was completely packed and left my flat at 11:55am, five full minutes ahead of schedule. I figured out how to navigate to London City Airport and was feeling very comfortable when the DLR was pulling into the airport stop at 12:35pm. (Have I mentioned I hate being late? Especially running late to the airport – unlike meetings and taxis, planes don’t wait.) One step on to the platform and I realized I forgot my passport. Yup, you read correctly – I went to the airport without my passport and had no one blame but myself.
AH! I was so upset with myself and caught the next train back to my flat. I was frantically calling Pete to have him book a cab to pick me. I was SO afraid that I was going to miss my flight. Fortunately, I didn’t. London City Airport is a 35 minute commute via the DLR door-to-door from our flat but only a 10 minute cab ride. Phew! I must have looked like a crazy person running from the DLR stop to our flat with a suitcase and overnight bag in tow. Apologies to anyone I almost ran over. Also, I’m out of shape. Something I need to work on now that spring has arrived.
SO, I made it to Zurich! No fun pictures to post at this point but I can report that the weather is beautiful and it seems to stay light out until at least 7:00pm! Love it! I’m excited to explore this weekend; Pete arrives late Friday night. It seems that there are a LOT of Americans here. Maybe it’s because I’m staying at a Holiday Inn but I was surrounded by American accents when I was checking in and eating dinner.
