England Manchester Airport

23 May 2016

Manchester airport is quite small

Flying Dubai to Manchester on Emirates business class

The flight was great, the arrival was smooth, getting to a hire car was interesting.
Now just to hire a car and make the 20 minute drive to my hotel in Warrington.
This should be easy enough despite tiredness, but hiring the car took forever, I had to initial 15 times each on 2 copies and sign. It was taking Avis 20 minutes a person to hire a car.
The modern model of English inefficiency was on display right here in Manchester.

Then it was time to drive in another country, a first for me? I think? I cant remember. So I had GPS to tell me where to go but it was struggling to get going, so I got lost twice, got beeped, went right around a roundabout, drove back into the airport and then eventually rolled into Warrington and found my hotel.
I have a great car, a diesel golf, but it has sonar cruise control and lane departure warnings, so I spent my journey at 70mph fiddling with it all whilst half asleep. This may have contributed to my wrong turns.

I still want to stay awake for a few hours to adjust to the timezone. Tomorrow is a full work day, so there may be nothing new here!

England-Manchester-Airport - This is the great view of Manchester airport, which looks like a school and or hospital.

England-Manchester-Airport - A new one to me, you have to catch a bus to the hire car places, the bus goes in a big loop almost back to where I got on it.

England-Manchester-Airport - And finally, and I am really tiring just typing this, my hotel room in Warrington. Its a travelodge, its super cheap, but its fine.
