24 hours.

Bad food, little sleep, and uncomfortable chairs.

I think flying would be an incredibly wonderful way to torture a human being. A few days non-stop on a plane would send any normal person insane, and you could torture mass amounts of people at the same time.

Ok maybe I'm exaggerating... maybe.

However I would like to defend the airplane food, it HAS improved from the scary grey sausages I was given the last time I went. Although this time I did survive mainly off the bread rolls and water... hey prison food!

And I suppose it wasn't 24 hours straight flying, there was a 4 hour stop over in Hong Kong in the middle. It was early morning so there was nothing open and of course in a huge place like that I had my small adventure of getting lost between the endless fake looking palms (I checked, they were real) and empty corridors. I also had a huge freak out because I didn't realise I hadn't set my watch to the right time, and it was two hours early and I thought I was going to miss my plane. Sadly it took me almost an hour to figure out the reason I was sitting all alone, and why the plane was late.

However I met two nice Finnish guys, who I started a conversation with. They were amused by the Australian who randomly poked them, asked them if they spoke English and then demanded (nicely) to be entertained.

You get to know people when you're forced to sit next to them for ten and a half hours with only Big Mamma 2 to keep you "amused". But I have no recollection of there names ^_^0.

Five minutes before landing I suddenly realised, "I was actually going to Finland!" I think maybe it was the pine trees that gave it away -_-0 Yep I am that slow.

And so I made it safely to Finland with no bomb scares, strip searches, stolen luggage or frequent flyer mile high points.


*Big sigh of relief*
