Back from the trip...

...and boy...did that return flight suck!!

Here's the rundown of what causes me to say so:

1.: Larnaca airport is building a new terminal. By November the 10th (last Tuesday) all flights by Cyprus Air are leaving there, by November 17th (next week) all others will. So right now there's the "old" one (where I had to go to) and the "new" one (where 90% of all the businesses on the airport went). I thought I can sit down for a nice comfy cup of coffee at the airport's restaurant, but it was literally boarded up.

2.: Metal detector buzzed again (damn shoes!)

3.: My seat was at the very back of the plane, where the seats are so close together that I didn't even fit in between them... had to stick my knees between the seats in front and pray that the guy in front didn't put his seat back :(

4.: Why does the air conditoning on a plane always feel like the pilot has the window down? I mean cool air is all fine but hey: this isn't a giant freezer! Now my almost healed sniffles is back with a vengence!

5.: To top it off, the guy behind me took out his laptop bag from the overhead compartment and dropped it square on my head. Ouch. Well, he did at least say sorry... :(

6.: Missed the train (connecting the airport to Vienna on a 30-minute interval) by about 5 seconds. So I had to wait half an hour to go to Vienna, which takes 16 minutes, head for my parke car which took about 7 minutes and head home for 55 minutes...

Needless to say, I'm totally done for the day.

Somewhere on live journal is an Austrian man complaining about having to fly in a frigid plane with an ornery cat practically wrapped around his back. “Any time my hand even went near the recline switch I’d hear this angry ‘mroooowr!’ And how was I supposed to know those weren’t the arm rests?”
But seriously, that doesn’t sound like a much of a happy Greek jaunt. I hope the island part went a little better.
Oh, and I don’t think ditzy means what you think it means.

Maybe there is such a journal :)

The Island part did in fact pass by pretty uneventful, which can be considered good for a business trip.

Eep! Thanks for pointing out that "ditzy" part... Somehow I read that as "dizzy" and thought that matched :)
