Today i got up at 4am again for a flight
to Toulouse to visit the airbus factory
Upon arriving in Toulouse I hopped on
what I thought was the bus to the airbus
factory (even the driver said this was
the one), it turns out it was the city
bus and I ended up 9km away in the city.
The driver stopped at the train station
and then admitted he wasn’t the correct
bus and just left me there as it was his
last stop. I got into the nearest cab
and he took me to the airbus factory which was only 2km away from the
airport as it turns out.
The A380 tour was very cool, especially the building where they are assembled.
I saw 14 A380s including 2 for Qantas. It was worth getting up early for the
trip. I suffered my first flight delay on the return flight due to round crew
shortages. The flight was delayed for an hour. I was delayed at the other
end too because the jet bridge was broken, I literally sat on the plane on
the taxiway for 45minutes. In the afternoon I went walking around the streets
of Montmartre, I find Paris to be a really beautiful city. The streets and
buildings are amazing.
