Hello and good afternoon, it’s me your Bearded Captain. Leader of all beards and flag bearer of all beards on digital and digital broadcasting media.
I am that beard who tries to make people Laugh and I am that beard who tries to make people smile.
I want to talk about an important issue in the world of The Bearded Captain. My brothers, this is the issue of holidays and the joys of holidays.Holidays are seen as a time to get away from it all, let your hair down (that’s just setting my self up for that one).
I am fascinated with this topic I am goofy to talk about and that’s the topic of holidays, holidays can be taken anywhere. From Butlins to Llandudno or Santorini being some examples of different ends of the holiday spectrum. With trips within the UK, they do can be long drives, but at least you can stop when you see convenient and not when the pilot of the aeroplane sees fit.
Talking of aeroplane pilots, he had the nerve to say this is your Captain speaking …. Err it’s not because I didn’t say a word! I was watching The First Team on the TV and they interrupted my TV bliss to say it’s The Captain speaking! Breathe deep breaths. That’s that rant over, but in a car, you don’t tend to be squashed into three seats when the designated space is more suited to two.
When going abroad, one day gets eaten up from the travelling out of the airport and the drive to your residency once you have reached your destination. It’s good exercise too as one checkpoint from the other is the other side of the airport. To have one checkpoint next to the other? No, that would be just too easy …. this task of going around the airport from one point to the next is like an Olympic sport.
Long-distance running (or walking in this case) and then maybe something similar to the shotput as you lift your luggage and put it on the trolley. As you push your trolley towards the airport exit, could maybe be described as something similar to a Skeleton (very very loosely.) Seven hours sat in one position, not able to move due to Covid measures (accept for the loo run).
So there you have it, one day wasted at the airport, maybe another day or two wasted packing your clothes getting to the airport, and the same process on the way back too – as well as the jet lag both ways, but having said all that … the time in between whilst out on holiday is wonderful and can help refresh the mind. It’s funny how a bit of sunshine and being in the middle of nowhere can have that effect on people.
It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
