no idea what it is :P
I was up at 4:40 (like being back at 
work) to catch a taxi and make sure I
would make my first of 4 flights. The
reason I did 4 flights is because I
wanted to see Stockholm but also 4
aircraft that we don’t have back home.
While I was waiting in Denmark I had
to buy another power adapter because
I had lost one of mine, it cost 240
kronors which sounds like a lot but
you need to divide that number by 7.3
to get the equivalent euro price.
Everyone I spoke to at the airport in Denmark spoke perfect English which was
so nice after the week with French, I think I’ll definitely have to take some
French classes when I get back because I missed out on so much.

After arriving in Stockholm I took the train into the city, not having a map
of Stockholm I took photos of the street corners so I could find my way back
and at the end of the day it worked very well and would recommend doing that
instead of walking around clueless.

In Stockholm I went down all the
shopping malls, went into all the
old churches and just walked around
exploring the city. I don’t like the
religious side of churches but I
love the ceilings and stain glass
windows that all these old European
churches have. I had a great time
in Stockholm and when I return in
july I definitely look forward to
doing a bit more as 5 hours wasn’t
enough.

My flight to London from Stockholm was
delayed by 45minutes which had me really nervous as they wouldn’t give
me a boarding pass for my connecting flight because it was for a different
airline. My scheduled arrival time was 1800 and my next flight left at 1910
however with a 45minute delay there would be almost no chance of catching
my connecting flight. It was a long 2.5 hour flight and I thought id miss my
connecting flight back to Luxembourg.

Fortunately my flight to Luxembourg
had also been delayed for an hour
because the aircraft hadn’t turned
up yet which allowed me time to checkin.

I landed back in Luxembourg at 10pm
and went back to my hotel to get
changed. I then went back to the pub
from the night before and met Audrey
there for more drinks. She was filling
out her contract for her new job, unlike
the Myer one where you accept the hours
and sign, her contract was never ending.
She said that when she was in New Zealand
she had one that was twice the size, very
scary.

After the pub (after 1 in the morning) we walked to a nice bridge,
said our goodbyes and I walked all the way back to my hotel.
