UKLUG 2009 – Arrival day

Today I arrived at UKLUG in Edinburgh (wonderful Scotland). It was a busy day. First a conference call with a customer at 7:00 a. m., then driving to the airport, getting the airplane….

It was a little stressful. But after I went into the airplane the stress felt off…

At the arrival the sun was shining. Very strange for Scotland, isn’t it? After a short bus drive to the city centre I arrived at the Radisson Blu hotel. A real nice location, for sure. Maybe a little bit expensive, but that’s ok.

During the afternoon I finished and finalized my presentation slides. At the moment I feel a little bit nervous. Not about the speaking engagement, more about: Is it what the attendees expect? But well, we’ll see – tomorrow.

In the evening the speakers dinner started. That was really nice. Good food – and better: good people. I feel really well with such a bunch of geeks around me. Should happen more often…

But now it’s time to “close the mind doors” and to get some sleep. Tomorrow will be exciting!
