Thankfully I was blessed with the good company of Matt, a Contiki European Tour Manager. He was flying back to London so we caught a taxi to airport together. We first tried the bus but damn Greek driver didn't stop despite being only meters from pick up point.
I checked in my ridiculous amounts of luggage. 28 kg over limit! The lady kindly reduced it to 17 so it cost me only 157 euro. It was only this leg though as Ath - Rom was on add on flight. My connecting flight Rom - Hkg & Hkg - Bne allow me two items of checked baggage. I did think about transferring some to hand luggage but the maximum is 8kg and when I weighed it the scale cleared 13kg! The lady kindly turned her head.
Next - time for a drink before take off. Then off to our seperate departure gates. It was great to have Matt there so I didn't get too reminiscent or sad. Also kept my mind off the fact that I could have been up for deportation! When I took the position I was unaware that I would be required to live and work illegally in Greece. No problem though.... the greek slackers didn't even look past my nationality and photo. YEAH!
A couple of hours later I was in Italy!
