Yep – still here in Ottawa… In the airport. Flight was canceled at 3 a.m. this morning…. It took 1.5 hours to get the luggage off the plane.
Then we had to wait until 6 a.m. to check in. Now we don’t have flights booked from Frankfurt to Brussels… We’ll have to stay overnight in Frankfurt – at our own expense. We are not too jazzed right now.
At least this proves why you should always leave lots of time for travel. So now we essentially have lost two days of our trip.
So tired. Can’t really think right now. More later – I guess from Frankfurt. I need to ride my bicycle!!!
(Sorry to those of you who read both of my sites – this is the same content that I posted on Victoria’s Island. Just so tired and have a wicked headache can’t really come up with anything original.)
I can say that I miss real food. At least in the Air Canada lounge there is some yogurt and museli. Can’t wait to get to Belgium. I’ve never wanted to ride my bike so badly. I don’t care what the weather is like, I need to ride. This will be my third day without riding now. Too busy on Monday – getting ready for Tuesday’s flight. Couldn’t ride Tuesday because the bike was in a bike box. Can’t ride Wednesday because the bikes are somewhere in the airport. Hopefully Thursday – assuming we get a connecting flight and the bikes arrive… Sigh.
Don’t travel close to your race. Luckily we just have a couple of local races this weekend. But this was not part of the plan. Okay – having trouble typing – must get some sleep.
At least I’ve got my Skins on – they’re keeping me fresh…
