Well, I got the airport good and early just in case there were any lines for security. I shouldn't have rushed. The computer on the plane broke and, wouldn't you know it, they had to fly in a new one from Atlanta. The really bad part is that my flight out of Nashville to Atlanta was the last flight to Atlanta for the evening and my connecting flight in Atlanta to Gatwick was the last flight to London for the evening as well. So, they've rescheduled me for late tomorrow morning and have put me up in a hotel for the evening. I hate Delta...this only ever happens to me when I fly Delta. I wonder what's going to happen with my train ticket when I finally get to London...
So the hotel was out of non-smoking rooms...it smells like an old nightclub in my room and I have to keep the windows open for ventilation. Yuck. Tomorrow has got to be better.
Luckily, I bought a quad-band cell phone with a prepaid sim card and already had 5 pounds on the card so I could call Ali. She's waiting for me in Edinburgh (thankfully with her friend Meg so she's not waiting for me alone). Otherwise I would have no way of reaching her to let her know that I won't be at the train station in Edinburgh when I told her I would be. She's been doing a 10 day tour of Ireland. I'm so jealous!
Hi! We're Matt and Mandi (hence the 'M&M") and we caught the travel bug years ago. We had the opportunity to live in Germany back in 2007 for three years and loved it, and we're moving to Taiwan now (2017)! I've decided to resurrect this blog for our family, friends, and random strangers to follow along on our newest adventure.
