Sanne having breakfast
After checking out and having breakfast (Me again half an apple, Im just not fit for having breakfast) we went to Karlsplatz again for some shopping and we took some pictures from the city. We walked around and visited a very pretty church we saw on the way. It was a good last day, not too active but just nice. We had lunch and went over to the metro station to get back to the hostel. We had left our luggage there untill we had to go to the airport. At the metro station we say this little Sushi store where we bought some food. I had some shrimps wich were really good! After that we decided to not go by metro anymore and just get a cab to the hostel and after that a cab to the airport.
It was a good decision, because by the time we reached the airport it was snowing! At the airport we had a big shock! The display said there was a flight to the Netherlands at 17.20 and our papers said 17.55. Total stress broke out and we were running around the airport like crazy. Finally we found out that none of that was true. No flight was leaving at 17.20 but no flight was leaving at 17.55 either. So the flighthours had changed but nobody had bothered to inform the passengers. Pretty strange if u ask me! So more waiting to do for us at the airport. That was not very bad really since we were having a lot of fun. Manon bought some private ehm.. item at this sexshop at the airport wich had to go in a sealed bag. So when we had to go trough the point where they check ur baggage her face had turned bright pink really. Luckily the women behind the counter saw what it was and just put it back in her bag immediatley. Manon didnt think of the whole bagage check thing.
She did but she didnâ��t think she had to take it out of the bag actually. We also discovered that my ticket said I was a woman on the way over there and that I was a man on the way back. Haha so we were just saying how I went to Austria to get a sex-change operation. Ofcourse it was a line for of Dutch people so very soon everybody was interfering in the conversation and we had a lot of fun with the other passengers. After finally being checked and everything we sat down to wait for another 20 minutes (or so we thought) but then they announced a change in the gates and that everybody had to get back out and go to another gate! So we had to go to the other side of the airport to find out there that we had to be checked all over again. But we had already handed in all our flight tickets so there were 2 guys standing behind the counter who had to check every ticket they had by hand. People would just have to show their passports and he had to go look for their ticket in the big pile of tickets he had with him! So you can imagine the flight left way later than scheduled.

I had planned to be home at around 21.00 but I got there at 01.00! Talking about some delay! But we arrived safely in my tropical country! (It was really tropical compared to Austria) so things were fine. We had a great trip, met a lot of nice people, had a lot of fun and enjoyed the beautiful city. I totally lost my voice which was highly entertaining for my classmates the next morning. Im in al all-boys class for this block so I got to sit trough 10 million jokes about the state I was in J. 9 days untill my trip to Barcelona, of to new adventures! Ciao ciao for now! x Devi
