It has been a bad week for travelling. As of Tuesday afternoon my schedule was: Wednesday fly to Madrid and give a speech followed by a slap-up dinner; Thursday fly from Madrid to Athens; Friday have some meetings followed by another slap-up dinner; then stay on for the weekend to catch up with friends, see a gig and raid the record shops. But then the Greek air traffic controllers announced a strike on Tuesday evening, and on Wednesday fog descended on London City Airport resulting in all flights getting cancelled.
Never mind. We can still have a musical trip to Spain and Greece. Fasten your seatbelts, make sure your luggage is safely stowed in the overhead lockers or underneath the seat in front of you, but don't turn off all electrical equipment. Now pretend you're on a jet plane in your rocking chair.
