Strasbourg Day 6: Coming Home

25 09 2010

The course was now over, and we had said most of our goodbyes. However Andrea, Marlene, Gaylord and myself decided to have lunch together, before I left. We made our way to the centre of the city, and had a very good lunch together at Le Dauphin. We were seated outside and it was great fun. I had Voul-au-vent mmmmm and we chatted our way through lunch. Suddenly it started pouring with rain 😦 and the umbrellas under which we were seated started dripping. After some table movement and seating settlements we managed to finish our meal.

Unfortunately it was now time to make my way to the bus station to start my trip back home. I said goodbye to my new-found friends, and left to the train station. There I found the line for the Lufthansa airport bus and started my trip back home. The bus trip was OK, but things only went downhill the moment I arrived at Frankfurt airport. There was a long queue and wait to check in, because they had some problems. This made people frustrated. I was in the club-class/flypass line (I have fly pass weee). And once they started checking in a guy decided to ask whether he could check in because he was club class. They told him sure and they just checked him in whilst skipping the whole line. Obviously people got angry, because everyone in that line was either club class or fly pass. But anyway I checked in and went to the gate. We boarded the airplane on time. But then we waited, and waited, and waited. After 1.5hours on the plane we finally flew WEEEEE.

The flight was not that nice, especially towards the end where we had quite some turbulence, and we landed to find a stormy Malta. I then went to get my luggage and it had a stud missing at the bottom. I went to claim the damage, but they told me it is wear and tear…so I now have a nail poking out of my luggage…well, patience right. I came home and SLEPT.

Overall…it was a great experience. I think that the course could do with some improvements. But it is something that people should do more of 😀
