When snow hits Europe and all of a sudden you are stuck in Milan!

The Facebook thread...

Charles Roffey
Predictably, given the thin covering of snow here in Milan, Easyjet are cancelling the flight!

Charles Roffey No Marc Almond at Wilton's tonight - the curse continues. Now to find maybe a train back to Amsterdam. Milan seems to be blocked off to air traffic.

Charles Roffey Maybe Eurostar to Paris and then Thalys to Amsterdam, if no night train to (near) Amsterdam.

Charles Roffey Are you still in Amsterdam, Rogerio? If not, when will you leave. I am due back at about 3 pm tomorrow after a night train to Paris and a very expensive Thalys up from there.

Rogerio Lira Ouch, it can't be fun to be stranded in a train right now... stay calm and see if you can see the humorous side of the situation...
As to me, I'll fly Monday morning, weather permitting. My weekend involves frantic packing, a few deadlines and a birthday party. I also planned to attend a design symposium but I think it was too too ambitious a plan :-)

I'll see you in the spring!

Rogerio Lira Hi Joy - Canada for three weeks, then Brazil for three months.
There will be some contrast, that's for sure.

Charles Roffey That sounds like a great plan, Rogerio. A pity we let November pass without seeing each other but that was hectic too.

I am enjoying a delicious Milanese meal now before starting the epic train journey over/through the Alps to Paris, then up to snow-bound Ansterdam.

Buon viaggio!

Charles Roffey No, he is home alone in our nice warm house. He had his school's Christmas party today, took him four hours to get back home. Still, it seems to be quite beautiful in Amsterdam at the moment.

I put on an extra jumper from my baggage, but am still freezing

Charles Roffey Mmmm! Found some warmth, near the toilets. Train delayed for two-and-a-half hours, only 20 minutes to go but somehow I think we'll be seeing a longer delay posted soon.

The train from Grosseto is delated seven hours!

Charles Roffey That is the best thing. I am in northern France at the moment, going at 230km/hr instead oif the normal 300 km/hr (which I still think is very impressive). The countryside looks quite a picture. Will you be watching Strictly this evening?
