Europe, its bigger than you think

I thought I'd been so clever, flying through Munich to Ljubljana, but Adria, the second stage carrier decided it was in their interests to wait in Ljubljana for two hours for some of the incoming passengers. This left me in Munich for over four hours. Just so we both know, they chose to make me and my fellow passengers wait, rather than those who were late to arrive in Ljubljana. I don't remember anyone waiting for me last time Adria were late getting me to Frankfurt.

I didn't get to the hotel in Bled until after midnight. Straight to bed, as I need to get up in time for the EU's "Future of the Internet" conference later today.

I've always found Europe to be smaller than I initially thought, as a result of distances being measured in kilometres rather than miles, and motorway speed limits (especially in Germany) being a little more sane than they are, here :-).

I've also been through Munich airport - and I was on the other end of a problem similar to yours, with my 'plane having arrived late. They did hold my connecting flight, but it involved me running from one end of the concourse to the other, with my hold luggage and airport security staff in tow, and loading my luggage personally. Not an experience I fancy repeating.

Clearly the future of the Internet should include the ability to better integrate transport networks. Better yet a way to scp yourself to the other side of the world.
