I always think of the way our parents used to travel - buy a ticket, stuff a suitcase and jump on a plane. And you're anywhere. Anywhere in the world. It certainly isn't that simple anymore. Far from it. Now you've got to do everything to get anywhere. Make sure to dot every 'i' and cross every 't'.
Now we spend almost every Sunday morning in bed, with an iPad and a laptop, and slowly slowly the to-do list gets shorter. And longer. And shorter.
