Gatwick Express

Gatwick_ExpressI’ve just gotten on the Gatwick Express to the airport, headed to Morocco for nearly a week. A much needed break after a whirlwind first half of the year. Can you believe that it’s already June? And mid-June at that! Crazy how fast time flies.

Joe has been in Prague the last few weeks for surgery, which is incredibly cheap there. Not because the doctors aren’t educated or the work is bad, but the market there for it just isn’t the same. Many of their doctors are educated at the same schools and return home, not to mention that the cost of living in the Czech Republic is just significantly cheaer overall, hence making the cost of medical treatment seem that much more affordable to those of us who live in extortionarily expensive cities.

But I digress. He just got back last night, and here I am leaving the next day for a holiday. Bad timing, but a lot cheaper and the timing for work was the best it was going to get. So I took the opportunity and ran with it.

As many of you know, our track records for holidays aren’t necessarily the best. Something always manages to go wrong, but it looks like we might be on the uptick finally! Joe’s Prague trip went smoothly, and thus far (knock on wood) so has mine.

Next stop, Gatwick. Time to fly!
