October 3rd 2021
Today was the exact kinda crappy “travel home from holiday” day that you’d expect. I left Latvia at 10am UK time and didn’t get back to my house until 10 hours later.
I got a taxi to the airport. I got a flight to luton. Walked to the train station. A train to St Pancras. The tube to Paddington. A train to swindon. A train to Cheltenham. And an electric scooter home.
Then, when I got home I found that I’d got a speeding ticket from when I drove to Bath last Monday. So that was a welcome return home. I was doing 46mph on a motorway through an average speedcheck zone. I do remember slowing for the average speed check cameras, but I guess I slowed too slowly. I can’t complain about it, because I was speeding, and those are the rules, but I can be kinda annoyed about it.
So all in all, not a great day. But the “return home from holiday” day never is a great day.
It was a great trip, though.
Although, I am now tired and ill and poor.
Until tomorrow, still a great trip.
