So, needless to say - I don't like flying much. Right now I'm sat on a train in Manchester using my phone as a modem. Oh, the jetset lifestyle of a third-year Music Technology undergraduate in the post-industrial North-West.
I relate. Not keen on commuting. I enjoy the buzz of looking out the window and takeoff but the checkin, the waiting, the crowdedness, queuing to get off and luggage collection is a real grind.
