Up at 5:45 which is still sleeping in for a 12 hour shift guy where I work. The cab company has a flat 42 Euro rate to the airport for which we heard was a 30 minute ride. This Saturday morning it was a no traffic, 15 minute zip in a Mercedes taxi. So in view of our previous cab ride Wednesday I figure this one's a real money maker. Nancy asked the kitchen to make a snack for us yesterday since we would miss our included breakfast at the hotel. They were under no obligation to do this since we didn’t book direct but it was much appreciated and very nice of them. It all went smooth at the Shipol Airport and or Airbus 310 took off about 9:10 with us aboard in the club seats again. As I write this at 33,000 feet I can say we are spoiled again, good value for the money. The weather was clear going over the coast of Greenland so we had a terrific view and it was very interesting but I’m still not moving there. For the first time Nancy found something worth buying in the duty free book. It was an attractive "Seksy" watch with Swarovski Elements and matching pendant. Thank goodness it was over $100 so she also got a free Murano blown glass heart pendant (smart shopper). Our oldest son Shawn, picked us up at the airport and we arrived home after 3 ½ hours due to people trying to escape Toronto on the long weekend.
