thread Top tip
If I ever claim to have worked out a more interesting but "not much longer" route to walk somewhere, think carefully. Eg will you arrive at the airport by emerging from a hedge and climbing a (solid) fence? There's a high possibility you will, on the other hand you wouldn't see the 6th century BC Temple of Artemis would you?

(Those that have been paying attention on twitter or Facebook will know which airport I'm currently in
permalink Temple of Artemis is next to Luton iirc
permalink if by "next to"
you mean "three hours flying time, after an hours delay"
