I'm generally an early bird, I can't sleep long even if I try. But even for me, there is the too early. No matter how early I go to sleep it's rough to wake up at this time. It's funny how a couple of hours makes such a big difference.
And it's not just waking up early. Usually, it means some travelling. Like today, I have a customer meeting at Tallinn. So that means I had to wake up before five, sit on a train to get to the harbour and then spend two and a half hours at the ferry. And then, the same trip in the afternoon. This is going to be a long day. All this just for a couple of hours with the customer.
Sure, I could have declined this assignment. I could have let my local colleagues handle it. But I think this is quite an exciting opportunity and am actually happy to go. Even if it means such a long day.
Luckily this doesn't happen too often. And this was a good day to go in a sense as tomorrow is a bank holiday so there is plenty of time to rest and recover from the trip.
