Flyng to the Adventure!

I’m flying finally and starting this amazing experience!
Last night I organized a kebab dinner and a drink to celebrate my departure and to say Goodbye to some friends who are leaving too and I don’t know when I’ll meet them again. Obviously I ensured will be finishe  at 11pm , because tomorrow I have the wake up call at 4am, above all I haven’t got the car so I must take the coach to my home and the last is at midnight. The good intention was shot down when Elio told me that he can give me a lift, RESULT? I arrived at home, as always, at 1 am.

The travel anxiety doesn’t help me sleep at all and I roamed between the bathroom and the kitchen in case maybe I forgot something  important, NOTHING! I switch on the computer to check for the last time the my) email and Facebook and I try to sleep, but I have thousands of’ideas in my mind. At 4am my dad called me and I pretended to stretching and I got up immediately!

My dad’s face is like “The mask” when looking at Cameron Diaz, it was so surpriseding that I got up so immediately. “I’m dreaming or I’m awake?”he asked, pinching his arm. He isn’t wrong, usually before I get up my father must call me almost three times and sometimes he must resort to extreme ways like throwing a glass of water in my face! Horrible wake up!
I had a big breakfast as Sunday Easter Breakfast: melon, caffelatte ( all the coffee machine) , yoghurt with cereals, and bread and Nutella!
I planned diet, so I don’t feel guilty, I chose a grapefruit juice rather  than orange juice, there is less calories!
I open my bag almost ten times and I decide to add anothertwo books: one by my friends, Davide, and the other by my guru: Ricky Martin.
I put the luggage in the car , I say goodbye to my brothers that they are still sleeping and I give my mother a big hug. She whispers that she misses me and I kiss her as I would tell her that I miss her too. My father escorts me to Ciampino airport and during the travel he talks about the electricity that my family used. I say yes with my head but I swear in my mind because I wonder why he goes so slow, just 80km/h when the highway is completely free?And moreover sometimes put the foot down if he goes at 100 km/h as he is afraid he will get a fine. How patient!

We arrive at 6am on time and I have only 10 minutes before check in closes. I give my father a big hug while a policeman tell us that we stopped in the corner, my father try to explain but I ignored him and I took my luggage and I go with a Bridget Jones style step to check in. As usual for Ryanair there a long and single queue, so I pray the other passengers pass quickly because I have my flight soon. When I put the luggage on the belt to check in and I give to the hostess the reservation with the Identity card I checked the time: 6.09 am! One minute more and I would have missed the flight!
The hostess warn me that I have two kilos of excess so I take out all my books, one kilo less, It’s ok!

I slip in with the Paris Beauvais passengers whose have the flight ten minutes before mine and I rush to the gate, and I heard that the hostess called my name. When we arrive at the plane I do the gentleman thing, also with men, so I  have time to send my last and usual ” Good bye” text message to my friends, I recommended to keep in touch by email and by skype (even though, I have to be honest, I’m having problems with Skype, but I installed it again when I arrived in Stockholm)

As a good passenger I switched off my mobile phone when the hostess checked the ticket. I planned to sleep during the 3 hours(hour) flight, but you know as travel with Ryanair: they’re starting with hot meals reservation, then the beverages, then the dutyfree, then the lottery, then the second turn of beverages, and one more turn of beverage(s), I challenge anybody to try to sleep!
Anyway, with all these annoyances I write my last words until I set foot in Norway, we’re landing!!

  1. All of the features are in plain view, easily accessible and, above all, useful.
    Do the special offers make it worth the decreased purchase price.
    Usually, the types of online fraud we’ve looked at so far depend on the way we use the web.

    For those that want to look stylish and sleek and are doing nothing more than communicate, surf and
    play games, then maybe an i – Pad is for you.
    The problem is even worse if they’re using the newer versions of Office that are optimized for. The mail program on the device allows for a much simpler yet very powerful way of handling your email.
