It has been a bit quiet around our blog. It has been so busy on our day jobs ánd we are busy planning our trip to the Philippines.
So from now on we will try to keep you updated about all the good and bad nonsens that’s keeps us busy in our lives.
Everybody knows about it. The irritations with traveling. But ofcourse you have to put a little energie in it before reaching your paradise destination. Because of this you are aware of your huge need of relaxation on your vacation.
I just had a trip full of irritations and I just need a little complaining about it. So be aware! If you also just had a trip or you’re about to go on a trip, don’t read this! It can cause you trauma’s
To start with you luggage. I’m a girl and of course my suitcase is way to heavy. The result: opening your suitcases, on the floor, next to all your fellow passengers, who are waiting for you, to divide all your belongings to the perfect weight balance.
The worst part of this, is to make a mess of your all ready perfect divided suitcase. And after all this to watch the face of your flight attendant behind the counter to give you the “good” sign.
At the look and very big smile on the face of the flight attendant, I imagine that they are feeling lucky at this moment. Or maybe it’s just their standard face modus for customer services. But in any case we can pass trough!
After checking in, I still have to carry an overdose of hand luggage. Because every girl knows how it is going right before you leave. Last minute extra this and extra that. The point where you are going to use it will never come, but you shouldn’t tell your beloved partner that very moment.
From check-in until the gate they also have a few tricks to keep you busy.
I will make a list for you:
#they guide you from one waiting line into the other #all your electronic equipment out of your bags #take of your belt #your glasses #your jewellery #and everything in a different bin #they’re not so difficult of getting of your shoes too #they check your hair (because you already had a lot of time to make it a bit nice) #Owh! and they have a new scan at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport
So finally in the airplane, your handluggage 8 rows further, because we are to proud to wait in the line for boarding (next time I’ll be in front of that line)
#The seat is sticky, because they forgot to clean in between the previous en this flight, after a small accident with something like orange juice
#Sitting next to a supersized and smelly guy. Who falls into a deep and not so soundless sleep 5 minutes after entering. And ofcours I’m sitting in the middle, so going to the bathroom will be difficult.
#Then the passenger before you lies back. So much, that he is almost in your lap with his sticky and gross hair. I could almost give him a head massage. Almost…
#Making foodlove with the passenger behind you. Ofcourse it’s not the fault of his way too long legs..
#On a flight from Amsterdam – Istanbul you don’t have a personal tv screen. I could have appreciated it, but looking with a bunch of adult people to Spongebob Squearepants, without turkish sound (Turkisch airlines), is very cosy ofcourse..
#Icecubes in your warm, very well earned white wine…
#Ikea blow up pillows are the one good thing on this trip
#The food is also surprisingly good
The next plain to our final destination Manila is a lot better. But I would never recommend this Turkish airline to anyone else.
Hygiene is not their first priority. But in a plain with, I don’t know how many people, for at least 12 hours. A clean toilet would be nice.
If you once have a trip like this one, than you really deserve you vacation.
For everyone who is still going on vacation. Have a nice trip and just try to relax!
