|Save the date - Strike Action.|
The Belgians are striking. Apparently they love Monday strikes because they are having them for the next three Mondays.
Tomorrow's strike will impact rail routes going to Germany. If you have a meeting in Hamburg, I highly recommend rescheduling. If you are planning to get to London, you are golden. If you want to get to the airport, I suggest booking a car service or cab. Nothing like getting all sweaty walking to the station to find out that the trains are also out of service and then having to fight someone for a cab.
|Strikes can take a crap on your travel plans.|
The next two strikes are predicted to be more severe. Eurostar services are cancelled, as are local and international services and the airport transportation will be shut down. If you are planning on leaving on Brussels on the 15th, think again.
I appreciate getting the notice of these strikes. The Italian railways announce strikes months ahead of time. I feel like each strike needs a save the date card sent out with the information because you are likely to forget it. I recommend special ordering fridge magnets striking workers of the world for each action or in the case of the Belgians a set of three. They are really cute and handy.
Joking aside, I understand the need to strike and the consideration by those striking to allow others to make alternate arrangements, but does this lessen the impact of your strike?
What if you had a strike action that closed the airport and no one came?
|Not always. Be prepared. Carry a good book, your charger, know your rights and always use the bathroom before you board your flight.|
Happy Trails my friends.
