After a short night due to work deadlines the day before, I travelled to Malta on June 6. Here, I will enjoy a week-long holiday. The first 2 days I will be by myself, but Sunday June 8 Sarah will join me. The flight was, I am pleased to say, completely uneventful. Somehow I was a little surprised, but maybe that’s because the last time I flew I went to the U.S., where going through security and all seems a bit more stressful.
