Gatwick Conversations

I was really hoping to get the opportunity at the airport to catch up with my huge backlog of email.  I have my laptop, power, free wifi, and a desk.  My flight doesn’t leave for another two hours.  It should be perfect.  But I can’t manage to not overhear the conversations going on around me.  I’ve always had problems blocking out background noise but today the English conversations are driving me mad.

    If you want foreign conversations, you’ll have to go somewhere more exotic than Gatwick. But since you’re at an airport, this is probably a problem that will sort itself out!

    Now I get to hear exotic conversations in Dutch.

    I always carry headphones with me when I travel. Helps me to calm down in the middle of airports.

    In my stressed state I completely forgot about my iPod! I really need to remember that next time.
