After the tranquility of Paris, I was in shock for a while after leaving France and going to the UK. I think I am operating on adrenaline right now.
5.45am Paris – woke up and got ready to leave, had breakfast, packed bag, raced out door.
7.15am Paris – on metro to Opera station to catch airport bus
8am Paris – Roissybus to airport
9am Paris – check in for flight, am told it ‘might’ depart, not sure, depends which way the ash is flowing
10.30am Paris – flight takes off an hour late but at least it takes off
12 noon Birmingham – arrive, take taxi to Stratford on Avon
1pm Stratford – wandering around Stratford looking for a restaurant for our group of 18 people
1.30 Stratford – group arrives, have lunch
2.45 Stratford – finally get into room, change
3pm Stratford – bus back into Birmingham for kick off meeting
6pm Birmingham – off to dinner with the team in downtown Birmingham
11.30pm Stratford – finally get to bed!
