Another week another airport

On way to Exeter this morning to give a talk in the university this afternoon about the Irish and Scottish diaspora strategies. My first trip through Exeter airport. I've kind of been 'collecting' UK regional airports as I shuttle about to meetings and talks. Not the most sustainable form of travel, but taking the ferry and train would add a day each way onto each trip. As with many of these trips I doubt I'll see much of the town itself as I'll be leaving early tomorrow morning to catch a train up to London. The short flight should hopefully give me time to finish Duane Swierczynski's, The Wheelman, which at the minute is right up there in my top five reads of the year.

I am just about experienced enough to know that if you have seen one airport you have seen them all, but not experienced enough to really believe it yet :)

I have just woken up to realise you were in my home town today, the day I drove up to North Devon. Seventy minutes driving through the foggy but beautiful countryside; two and a half hours of depressing discussions about cuts in services; and an hour driving back. No wonder I fell asleep.
Exeter Airport and St David's Station are not the most scenic spots in Devon.
