This week, the Dog and Pony show goes to Spain.
I was given the option (if that’s what it was) of a 3:45am pickup to get a 7:30am flight from Gatwick. I was sure it would only take an hour but with the thought of a terrible few hours of sleep getting up somewhere between 3:30 and 4am, I decided to stay overnight at Glamorous Gatwick.
I booked into the Bloc Hotel, located right next to departures in the South Terminal, this seemed genius. The hotel consists of sleep pods rather than rooms and so, arriving at 8pm after a very easy journey, I felt quite smug as I watched Crufts and went to bed.
It wasn’t the best sleep despite being an excellent plan as the bathroom fan was running all night but at least I didn’t get up until 5:45am so a much improved itinerary.
And so with that, I was off to Spain for three days of back-to-back meetings!
