Last week I still was a bit nervous about the Icelandic volcano preventing me from flying over the Atlantic. I had seen pictures of booths remaining empty at the industry fair Hannover Messe because company crews and equipment did not make it there in time. But airlines schedules seem to almost be back to normal now. I’ll be flying with KLM and Martinair and was relieved to see that my airline KLM has people monitoring Facebook and Twitter for cries for help from stranded passengers.
My suite case is not yet packed, yet. I am obviously doing anything to avoid it. But the pile of things to take with me (like bags with sweet green gummi frogs) is slowly reaching its final height.
