I’m in Iași again on a business trip for a week.
Getting here this time was comparatively stress-free: no lost baggage, no sprints through airport terminals, no tides of passengers to swim through/against to emerge on the other side of security checkpoints, no detour to another part of a country, no surprise all-night road trip. Maybe the airport lounges at my disposal helped keep my stress levels lower, too.
But I don’t think that’s the only reason this trip has had a more relaxed feeling so far. The weather outlook, despite the heat wave last year roughly this time, is not bad, and even significantly cooler than Regensburg over the next five days.
What’s more, three wedding celebrations were happening simultaneously at the hotel where I’m staying. I loved the music early in the evening; less so at 3 a.m.
