That night we had to leave for the airport. I fell asleep just before that! I really hate that, I told myself I wouldnt sleep anymore before leaving but I couldnt help it. So then I had to wake up again while being soooooo tired. We went to the airport and had some coffee there and did some shopping. Just to kill time really. Finally it was time to board. We went on the plane and I fell asleep almost immediatley after. When I woke up an hour later I noticed we were not in the air! We were still at Colombo airport. Man was I pissed! What was going on? There appeared to be some technical problem and they were still working on that. By that time it was 4 in the night already and we were still waiting. Stuff like that can happen ofcourse but I was just worried about our next flight. We only had 2 hours in between flights! After waiting for a short while we finally took of! I slept trough most of that flight really! I woke up when we were approaching the airport of Dubai. The sun was up and we had a good view from the airplane, that was very pretty.


We arrived at Dubai Airport with only 15 minutes left to get to the next plane!! We ran trough the airport like maniacs trying to find the right gate! We made it just in time they were already closing up at the gate! The lady helped us as fast as she could and also told us that our luggage probably would not arrive in time and that they would send it on the next flight then. I couldnt care less at that point I just wanted to get on the plane and go home. We still had a 7 hour flight ahead of us but it was not that bad since it was KLM :). So I focused on my tv screen and watched some movies. I saw some episodes of NCIS and slept for an hour or so. Then we finally arrived at Schiphol Airport. How I loooooove my country! Ofcourse our luggage was not there so we went to the desk of KLM at the airport. They told us it would be delivered at our house the next day or the day after that. We went into the arrivals hall were Robin was already waiting for us. I was so happy to see him :). We all went home together and watched a part of the stuff we had on camere just to show Robin. I was not paying attention at that point.. All I could do was just.. Sleep.. Zzzzzz..


I want to thank Ante (Antalescu) for supporting me all the time with his sms messages :) thanks... BIG KISS!
