36 hours and counting

Had a bit of a scare with my Eurostar confirmation. Although my itinerary said "confirmed" there was no seat number and the absence of a confirmation code wasn't encouraging either.

I called the travel agent and they were a little concerned too, although they did have the seat number.

My hotel is 2 mins from Gare du Nord so I went and with a huge sigh of relief I was able to pick up my ticket.

I didn't have a bag with me so as I walked back to my hotel I guarded it as if my life depended on it! There were so many people about the station who knows how desperate some people may get.

With the skies seemingly clearing, I have a flight reserved for tomorrow morning from Heathrow to Belfast. If the news looks good tonight, I'll stay in London and catch that tomorrow.
Failing that (which is likely) I'll continue on to Liverpool as planned and catch the 10:30 sailing to Belfast tomorrow morning.

The journey continues.

  1. It's not that good (the quote the Guardian again):

    "Airports in Scotland and northern England were today trying to take advantage of a "window" between ash clouds from the Iceland volcano after warnings that a strengthening of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption was heading towards the UK."

    There's more dust on the way...
