Things I have learnt on the third leg.

Standard

There are a lot of lovely people in the world.All the people I sat next to over the three flights were really nice and funny. I was climbing over the lady in the middle seat to get out to go to the loo and her husband was untangling himself to let me out. I said ” I am sitting on your wife” he said quite protectively and shocked ” you’re doing what?!” .He wasn’t concentrating and thought I said ” I am shitting on your wife”. Well that certainly broke the ice!
A380s are great!
A lot of people have very bad coughs!
In an hour and 10 mins Percy and I will be in Paris.

Things I learnt on the second leg

Standard

Wayward bold people try to take your seat!
Other people give you kind words of encouragement when you go all “bad cop” on the seat poacher.
I will be changing my home bound tickets to be on the aisle if I can. I don’t like feeling all trapped in.
Singapore airport was meh. I didn’t have a chance to explore it though as the turnover time was brief.
I did like their free wifi and usb
The man sitting next to me was a lovely Italian man who spends three months a time away from his wife and very young son to work on various tunnel construction. He made me feel better in an anxious moment. He says I have to start speaking slower if i want anyone to underrstand me instead of just smiling and nodding at me.
It’s a bit of over share but I get all anxious about making people wait while I am going to the loo and making people move for me to get to it. He was very funny and reassuring about my toilet issues.
The bus from the plane to airport seemed to go on forever. I got into the terminal and someone said “hi Bronwen” .A lovely barman that used to work at the Bot was there with his girlfriend. His mother had organised for a cake to be delivered to him on the plane. NAW! Another example of it being a small world

Things I have learnt on my first leg of my flight.

Standard

Aeroplane toilets are seriously disgusting!
Don’t wear linen!
The window seat up the back of a 777 has too big a gap to rest your head!
Limit fluid and food intake to avoid having to visit the toilet!
People with really bad coughs should all sit together!
Percy whines less than me about all of the above.

Couple more minutes and boarding the second leg , this time to Dubai.
Note to self-next time wear a t-shirt.
The poor driver picking me up in Paris may have to drive with his head out the window.
