The Personal Disquiet of

Returning from holiday is rubbish

– September 29th, 2004 –

Everything about returning from holiday is rubbish. From the packing to the checking in. No matter how quick your flight it always seems to take at least six hours travel time (in Europe anyway). Why is that?

Portugal was great however. I read 2 fantastic books whilst away. The first one I should have read a long time ago, it will certainly change the way I design and maybe even change the way I view the world. Don Norman’s The Design of Everyday things, is simply superb. Read it. The other book was Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything which stopped me being scared of Black Holes but made me scared of Neutrinos instead.
