Okay here's the game. I'm going to Stockholm this weekend because my filippino fiancé is coming for a 3 month visit. First time he comes here - acctually first time he's outside the Philippines but that's an entirely diffrent matter :). He's landing in Stockholm today at 11:05pm so I decided to go up here and meet him here instead of leting him take the trip down to Malmö alone. Heck yeah I'm a wonderfull guy aint I ? :))
Anyway the day before yesterday I started to feel nervous and superexcited so I really never had any sleep besides the two hours between 8 and 10 am. I was all to hyped to sleep. Then last night I wanted to crash in early because the bus for the airport left Malmö at 5.
Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooofe.....yes thank God 7-Eleven was open so I rushed over and had a cop of coffe. Then at two hours prior to departure I lined up at the Sterling Airlines check in counter, but nothing happend.
Thank God with one hour to go they opend check in. So I asked about it and she said that for the first flight it was one hour before and then 1,5 hour before for the rest of the day. I told her that it says otherweise on their website and they should change it. She could not agree more....it's nice to be understood :)
So well up in the aircraft a smal Boeing 737-700 with less leg space then a Smart Car cut in half, I acctually managed to fall asleep, and onley woke after 20 minutes because I heard the word coffee hehehehe. Ofcourse I bought one.
There was a bit of turbulence on the route to Stockholm and even during the descent but everything went fine and as we sat wheels on Arlanda Airport after one hour flight I was ready to get out, and well out of the building with the right suitcase in hand and a less then clear head I called the hotel and asked them to pick us up.
Unfortunately my room wasnt ready, which I was a little anoyed over, because I had set up a business meeting in the lobby since I was going to be here anyway, and I would acctually have loved to change before that. But no room yet. Well here comes SAS at their best, I just told them I'd sit in the lobby cafe and wait for my apointment and then check in later. But after like 7 minutes the girl from the front desk aproached me and said that now they had a room. Really good and nice service.
So I did the huricane style change of clothes, freshing up and as my apointment called me to say that he had arrived I was all set, just to the minute. What luck. I went through the meeting and then afterwarsds decided to go for a walk aroudn the area.
Then walked back to the hotel, took a hot bath and a one hour nap. Now I'm just strolling around the airport with a nervous smile on my face, my loved one is arriveing in about an hour....weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
