I’d been debating whether or not I could get to reboot this year — my third time. I actually registered for the conference, on spec, back in mid-March, and then waited and waited until Premier Binns called an election. He finally did, for May 28th.
Which means that I’ll be up late on the night of the 28th stoking the furnace that drives the election results, then getting up at 4:30 a.m. for an early flight to Montreal, spending the day in Montreal, and then catching an overnight Swiss flight to Copenhagen by way of Denmark.
Although it’s somewhat inconvenient on the front end, I simply couldn’t bear the thought of taking Air Canada cross the Atlantic again, nor the thought of wading through that security line at Heathrow. I’m flying on points to Montreal, paying my way on Swiss; total cost, all-in, was $1,100, which isn’t a steal of a deal, but is still pretty good for late May.
