2023 in Pisticci….no, still in Perth…..

This feels like it’s getting to be a habit. I leave for the airport and then go nowhere.

I’m now back at Katy’s house lying on the sofa with a glass of wine.

After getting the bus to Edinburgh Airport this morning, (it was late) I got through all the checks etc and went straight to Boots to buy 2 meal deals for the trip. It was lunch time by then.

Next I checked which gate my flight was leaving from only to discover that it was going to be about 2 hours late. Big problem as I would then have about 20 minutes to get to the railway station to catch my train to Ferrandina. Insurmountable problem as there were no later trains. ( It didn’t help that the airport Internet was not very good.)

I thought about giving it a go and then if necessary finding a room for the night. But I don’t know Naples and I’m a little scared of completely strange places. I think if it had been the same situation in Rome I might have gone. I know Rome and I’m sure I could have got a room in a hotel near the station easily.

So I decided to come back to Perth. ( it looks like the plane has been further delayed now.)

And here I am.

On the way back to the railway station in Edinburgh.
On the train to Perth
Back in Perth at the bus stop.
Not sure how I feel, warm is good…….

Cheers from Perth 🍷🍷 No breakfast on the doorstep tomorrow for me…..
