Travelling again: at Manchester Airport

Tuesday 17th January 2012, 8.25am (day 145)

Manchester Airport, 17/1/12

Back from the Lakes yesterday afternoon – and off again today, to Bergen once more.

Yesterday I walked through Skiddaw Forest and talked to no one and had a really good time, felt at peace, part of a natural environment. Today I flew first to Copenhagen then to Bergen and talked to no one and felt isolated, cut off from the world, shuttled through the antiseptic and artificial world of the business traveller. I’m sat now in an anonymous hotel with anonymous food in my belly and while I’m looking forward to, tomorrow, getting on with the next instalment of my work here, today has just been dead time.
