Jetsetting

Before this year the last time I had been abroad was September 2009, to Washington DC. This year I’ve already been to New York and now this week I’m going to Paphos in Cyprus and Florida for Christmas.

I’m not expecting it to be scorching in Cyprus at this time of year but it should be a good ten degrees centigrade better than the UK and I might see that thing that people abroad call “the sun”.

Look forward to obligatory photos of hotel pool, cocktails and beaches. Going to do my very best to get a tan.

I can’t wait, even if I did choose to spend 4 hours layover in a Greek airport just to save £40. I mean, Greek airports can be a lot of fun too, right?

Sunrise

Just so you all know- sunrise today was 5:22am. I know this because it happened 5 hours and 22 minutes into my coach journey to the airport. I have been spectacularly bored and this is the first break from the tedium of darkness. I’ve been awake since 10am yesterday. By the time I get to JFK I will have been up for 32 hours. Hopefully I’ll kip on the plane.

Gonna be in New York at some bizarre time tomorrow. Quite excited. Packed my case, put 5 copies of my book in. I still can’t really explain why. Maybe i’ll chat up some hot poetry loving waitress and give her one (a book) as a present. Then we will get married and i’ll get citizenship and move there and become the next Christopher Hitchens and pigs will fly and this is a poor sentence.

I’ll try post a bit about my trip but i’ll probably be fairly quiet.
