Lots of excitement as Ruth drops me at the airport as I’m off to Europe for a month! I’m attending the IPCA Europe Synergy Conference in Malta and catching up with family and friends in Cornwall and Sussex. The flight to Dubai (11hrs) was awful. The plane was packed, I had an aisle seat and Emirates service was poor! This is a photo coming into Dubai and some of the airport, which was huge. I had to get n a train to take me to the next departure gate!
