Travis frontman Fran Healy endured a mammoth journey from New York to his home in Berlin, Germany over the weekend (17-19Dec10) as extreme weather conditions battered the U.S. and Europe.
The singer began his journey last Friday (17Dec10) but his flight from America was cancelled and he had to wait on standby for almost 12 hours to catch another plane to London's Heathrow airport to make his connection to Berlin.
However, the aircraft was diverted to Shannon in Ireland because of a snow storm in the U.K. capital and Healy used buses and trains to cross the country to Dublin in the hope of catching a flight home on Sunday morning (19Dec10).
Healy's mammoth journey paid off and he arrived back in Berlin later on Sunday.
Detailing the trip on his website, Healy writes, "I woke up after touchdown in Berlin and was home within 40 minutes.
"It is so nice to be here. I found out, had I stayed in Shannon, I would surely still be there as I write. Nothing against Shannon but there’s no place like home. Happy Holidays everyone."
