Hello, and welcome to my first entry!

I don't have a lot to say just yet. I'm currently in Amsterdam International Schipol, waiting for my final flight to Vienna. So far the flights have not been too bad, as Malaysia Airlines has pretty good food and entertainment, made better by the planes being half empty. Lots of room to stretch out!
Well I'm glad to have left behind the most disgusting heat wave in Adelaide, but then Kuala Lumpur was not much better... Though it was quite pretty. 


Where I am now? A very thick fog and a beautiful 0C! I'm finally getting to wear my big jacket, although it's not so necessary being the airport is heated. The airport is also quite large; there are two separate McDonald's stores here and even a small art gallery (currently featuring Rembrandt)! I've walked the length of it three times, on both levels. I've paid for 30 minutes of wifi internet (grrr ripoff) and I've had a coffee, read some of a book, been to three different bathrooms (just to pass the time) and guess how long I still have left to wait? 3 hours! And that's to get on a flight which will last a meagre two hours. Can't wait.
I think the only thing of note right now is my time confusion, which of course was to be expected. Here, it's about the time I'd be in uni on the computer, having finished breakfast and getting into some serious work. At home, it's dinnertime! I can't fathom the amount of time that's passed personally, which I'm thinking is a bit of a blessing. I feel awake as if it really were morning, which it is locally, so that's good right? Screw you jetlag (yeah right, let's see how I feel once I get to my hotel) :P

So as not to waste my preciously paid for internet time, I'll go off and do interesting things to pass the time online now, such as uploading photos of Maccas .
And let's not forget the disgusting smoking booth

Not that anyone reading this isn't worth my time, however you've probably noted it's not really worth your time for this entry.

Cyas later! xoxo

Hi Noni,

Fantastic to read you've arrived.... virtually... and my goodness.. the airport is something else!!! Those green plastic/metal trees look like you're almost in the world of Ikea!! What an interesting place (if you don't have to wait there for four hours!) I woke up this morning worried about how I would contact you and that I didn't ring to say goodbye on Tuesday. But now I can speak to you this way... yippeee!!! Best of luck in your warm clothes!
Love Trix.
