D-Day minus 2, 3 Jan 2016: Weird Looks

Looking weird at the airport

It’s interesting the way that different cultures view different situations.
We are at Newcastle Airport tonight, with our only clothes being the ones that we are going to be skiing in for the next few months: ski boots, ski pants and an anorak with a fur hood. We have 2 sleds and skis.
As we sit here everyone is giving us weird looks, as if we are from another planet!
By contrast when we arrive in Oslo, we will be regarded as completely normal, and no one will give us a second look.
I suppose we will have to just tough out the strange looks!!
