Locked Down in London, Day 40: Holiday flight
An e-mail from my airline regarding my upcoming holiday flight – the one we postponed from April – left me in the quandary: do I transfer the flight to July (my only remaining free holiday time), do I accept the voucher that I can’t use and try to swindle my way round the fact that it’s not transferable, or do I sit tight and hope that the airline will cancel the flight and I can get my money back?!
On the subject of holiday flights: I saw the following video a while ago, and probably you all saw it by now… but just in case somebody missed out, something to cheer you up!
Virtual Escape: Of the Aegean
And the prow of its foams
And the gull of its dreams
On its highest mast the sailor waves
And the horizons of its voyage
And the echo of its nostalgia
On her wettest rock the betrothed awaits
And the nonchalance of its summer winds
And the jib of its hope
On its highest undulation an island cradles
(Odysseas Elytis: Of the Aegean)
