Alarm call at 4.30am. Depart Lisbon hotel at 5am. Board flight to Munich at 6.05am. Arrive Munich 10.15am, board flight to Athens at 11.45am, arrive Athens 2.45pm and take a cab to Club Med at Marathon for a 36 hour stay. Splendid.
So far so good as I sit at Munich airport waiting for the connection catching up with the distressingly gaffe free VP debate, the destruction of the Chicago Cubs, the deepening credit crunch and the inspiring news that Microsoft is employing a few hundred bods around Europe to develop search technologies to catch up with Google.
Goodness, the world seems like a strange place at the moment.
