Cappadox Festival, Cappadocia, Turkey – Travel Day

You have to love it when your journey to a music festival kicks off with a 3 am alarm, a run out the door and a drive to Heathrow for a flight to Istanbul.  Of course nothing is ever easy and as I headed towards London from Dorset the road signs were telling me that the M3 was totally closed for overnight roadworks.  Bloody wonderful!

Thankfully I had noticed the signs and set off on a lengthy detour which I am pleased to say meant I still arrived with time to grab a bacon roll and a coffee before boarding my Turkish airlines flight ready for a 6:45 departure.

The flight was a reasonably pleasant one and arrived in Instanbul  30 minutes early, why is it that flights are only ever early when you have a four hour wait for your connection.  At least Starbucks has wifi.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
