The second time I left the country came at a point where the project I was working on at the time (Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising) got an extension.
I forgot to mention in my posts prior to Amsterdam that flying to Schiphol was the first time I had ever been on a commercial flight.
I was alone.
I was nervous.
So, naturally, I sat off in the Wetherspoon’s in Birmingham International with a pint of Guinness to calm myself down.
