I shall discuss the trip from the arbitrary ‘mentionings’ of flights, to hotel service and the event itself.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
On Wednesday the 6th April, I got a fine early start, first with the wife taking me to the station and then catching 2 trains to get my flight out of Kastrup airport, Copenhagen.
This was the 2nd time that I had travelled out of Kastrup in a month and the previous time was smooth and without a hitch.I travel light, with everything packed into my computer bag and the necessary camera wrapped around my neck. No baggage check in as it is all hand luggage.
Well, so I thought. A delightful discovery that the flight allowance is only 8kg and not 10kg. And to add injury to insult, I was only allowed 1 bag, which I suspected but had seen others travel in a similar mode without a hitch.
In the end the trusty computer bag managed to take the camera and it’s bag. Well worth the buy this bag (wife take note)
On the plane, cramped and not top of the pops. Note to self, avoid Cimber Sterling.
As I climbed off the plane with my knees stuck to my ears, I knew that the circulation will return, if I took my time to move with caution.
Coming into Israel was a breeze. Ben Gurion was happy to see me, well so I think as I passed through with no problems.
I shall be the first to admit, I am not the best traveller and I still don’t know how to work my mobile phone. Well, I just don’t like mobile phones and after we do our next relocation, it is bye bye mobile phones for me. The wife shall hold fort or is it time to hand more responsibility to our son. 🙂
Look for man with a sign that says Gavin Doyle.
The taxi driver who had been sent by Kapaim was first class, he even gave me a quick run down of the city, Tel Aviv.
And assured me his nickname was Swede. I just had to ask anyone.
We arrived at the Intercontinental David
