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.
