NottinghamWhat a productive day!
You know, I don't think I've ever been “away” anywhere for more than two weeks. A fortnight is I suppose the “standard” foreign holiday duration and indeed is the “standard” duration for most on-site stays in this job. Time for a new experience then, as one project getting pushed two days means I have to fly directly from that one to the other, enduring eight separate flights between eight different airports. There's a part of me that certainly is not looking forward to being away from home for so long but, ever the optimist, the best solution is to treat it as a voyage of discovery and do my best to enjoy the journey.
So, as I sit here in Manchester Airport's T3 lounge watching the rain batter the windows and the planes come and go (one of the big Emirates A380s just touched down!) I might as well write for the blog. Just this today, but I'm going to have a go at daily blogging again for the next three weeks, perhaps that little daily commitment will help lift a homesick spirit and stave off hotel room boredom.
Expect a little something board game related (Friday, Samurai Spirit, Assembly and expansions Assembly: Re-Sequence & Override are along for the ride), maybe even the eagerly awaited (I assume) continuation of What Really Bends My Cards and of course, in typical Sneaky Meeples fashion, some photos of places and things along my way. I don't expect to get out much over the next three days in Brescia, but I do have a full thirteen days to hopefully enjoy some of the sights, sounds and places of Vancouver, WA. Maybe a long shot I know but if I do have any Vancouver, WA readers I'm open to suggestions of places to eat, drink and see in the Esther Short & Waterfront parts of town! I've even heard tell of a regular gaming night on Tuesdays...
Trials, tribulations, outdoor adventures and occasional board game commentary. Join me as I try to squeeze some gaming time into my life as a travelling IT consultant.
