This week I will be travelling to San Francisco (where our US office is) , Napa Valley (for my USA team meeting – though I suspect wine tasting may break out) and to Oregon to meet with a new client – more on this when I get back.
I am a pretty regular traveller, for years in my corporate career I averaged 3 countries a week and often in developing regions where air travel was unreliable and sometimes downright scary.
But on Monday I will face a new travel challenge – Heathrow Terminal 5. I am leaving this message in the hope that if I have not posted in 10 days or so, someone will notice and send a search party.
I managed to schedule travel for the last month to actively avoid the new terminal – there are always teething problems with a big new project to be fair but this one seems to be particularly bad. On the other hand the UK press are rabid in portraying any negative aspects so half of me thinks it will be fine.
With hand luggage only (I can work for a week and run 2 training courses out of cabin luggage) and online check-in we should be OK. I will let you know how it goes.
