A few days away this week, on business.
Planes, taxis and a ship included, as well as some high speed water taxis.
We arrived in Rotterdam in a grey rain, paid the taxi and walked along a metal corridor onto what turned out to be a surprisingly large ship.
I hadn't really comprehended the scale until I got lost the first two or three times and then later when we took a speedy small boat to a nearby restaurant and had a chance to look back at the temporary home.
I wasn't the only one to think of that Beautiful South song.
