Airport Confusion



I'm attending a short conference at the University of Maryland, so on Saturday I flew into Baltimore. Everyone walked from the plane, along the bridge towards the airport and.... stopped. We'd hit a dead end with lots of doors marked "No Entry" and "Staff Only". There was much confusion as people at the back couldn't quite believe that there was nowhere to go, and people at the front couldn't quite believe that we hadn't missed a turning somewhere. A young staff member emerged from behind one of the doors and ticked us off - at which we explained that there was a whole plane-load of people here, it wasn't just one or two lost souls. In the end, it turned out that we should have turned right from the plane instead of left, but since that door was bolted and the door to the left was wide open, it wasn't really our fault!

Apologies for the short post, I'm slightly preoccupied by the fact that I'm giving two talks on Wednesday morning...

Good luck!! I know that feeling well and I'm sure you'll feel a great sense of achievement afterwards.

That's so annoying when the airline or airport messed it up and then acts like you should have known. I would have been really irritated, especially after travelling on a flight!

I finished your book at the weekend and I absolutely loved it, well done, I am so impressed. I could barely put it down and read it in two sittings. I can't wait to read the next one.

Glad you found your way out of the airport. Hope you get to be a tourist for a bit, too.

Good luck with the talks!

Welcome to America! I will be heading to BWI tomorrow to pick up my husband. I am assuming he know how to get into the airport ;-)

Airports suck. Except my husband travels so much (which kind of sucks) that he gets to be 'elite' which means we get to go to the lounge, which doesn't suck.

Best of luck with the talks, as ever. I'm sure you'll be fine and do well.

How irritating it must have been to suffer that chaos at the airport, especially having just travelled for hours in a metal box:( xx

Hope your talks go well, and I look forward to hearing more about this area, which I don't know.
