I don’t know what I was thinking booking a 6:30 am flight. The plan was to arrive 10 hours early at the airport and do something and nap the time away.
There was only 2 free outlets in the terminal. Luckily I was able to snag one and used the euro charger with 4 ports (I was thinking ahead, not like I have about 4 devices to charge) and was able to have other people charge their phones as I made my bed on the floor.
As my paranoia of having my stuff stolen got pushed over by the need to sleep, I could feel the air system create a Me sandwich with a coldness of the floor.
I got to nap a little bit but now I’m freezing.
As I look around I can see that I’m the only person with a luggage cart and a big suitcase which means that I will most likely pay a hefty fee for having it be over weight. I’ll let you know how that goes when I get to the counter.
At least the extremely long line has dwindled with 4 people behind the desk rather than 2.
UGH!! I just paid $53.05 US for 5 KG over AND $47.75 US to check my bag. Stupid bottle of wine and cheese!
I must be tired if I’m blaming wine and cheese for me paying $142.35US for an excess baggage.
Next time I’ll pay the extra for a flight with free baggage. See you in a couple of days after.
Before going through thw gate (I think it’s just for London), you need to go through a passport check by German Police. Does that happen anywhere else?
The 7-day Europe trip didn’t give me a stamp so the police at the passport took a while before he let me through.
After landing safely in London, it seems that I has a warning in my passport. It was explained to me that I’ve been hanging around the UK too long. I have no ticket home and I have no ties to family, home or job back home for me to go back. So it is a warning to other customs office I MAY want to stay in the UK illegally. If I have 1 more warning,
I get denied into the country.
So, Book your ticket home. Don’t hang out in one place too long and have a house to go home to then you can avoid a black mark on your passport.
Took a train with Hannah to Glasgow where we dropped our stuff off in her really tiny room before heading out to her friend’s place for dinner.
I was impressed. Her friend can cook. It tasted like it came from the restaurant. Unfortunately, my camera died and I couldn’t take any photos.
I’m sure tomorrow I won’t be as cranky and complain as much. Not sure what we’re doing in Glasgow but I’ll figure something out.
