Tunnel Vision ?

It look’s like the Eurostar is up and running again after some hasty retrofitting to prevent the ingress of very fine powdery snow from Northern France which caused the short circuits and close down of the system on Friday.

Without doubt people were massively inconvienced. We witnessed more of that on the roads of southern Britain yesterday evening and today it was the turn of European flights.

It’s called winter.

As travel has become more civillised (although not in relation to the behaviour of those who travel) and realibility has improved our capacity to deal with ‘events’ has all but vanished.

That’s a mistake. By it’s very nature travel is an adventure. People should prepare for one. As long as no one is losing their live then all you can do is roll with it.
