Rajasthan Trip – Lift off!


It seemed that the day never would come and now it feels like it has been months ago… the day we departed to Rajasthan!

20170226_123338I get the last advice from my husband to stay safe, from my son not to drive a motorcycle as that is dangerous in India and questions on how he can reach me there (skype?), and from my daughter related to buying some cool stuff for her.

As relax as I never have been before when leaving on a trip (no one to take care of, no need to keep up appearances or keep my temper in check) we are making our way to the airport. Since the terrorist attacks a year ago, the departure and kiss & ride zones are no longer the same and we need to find a bit our way, especially some carts to carry our luggage. We are not carrying jackets or even closed shoes as we will not be needing them in Rajasthan… but still 3 degrees Celsius with a drizzling rain is cold…

As expected my hand luggage gets picked for thorough checking… I can’t call it a hand LUGGAGE any more, it is more like a hand MEDICAL STORAGE… yes, here are the invoices for the cooling box, cooling packs, thermometer, sleeping machine… and the prescription for the medication… watch out for the syringes… Still grumpy about that hand luggage situation (see my previous post).

 

20170226_085420And then it starts… literally it starts at the tax free zone… where my friend is taking her time for her morning beauty treatment… the most expensive day cream to apply, make up and parfume, hand lotion, body lotion…. yes she even is nurturing her legs with the golden body lotions…

As we are in a very good mood we are waiving to the Lufthansa pilots in the cockpit, who probably are so shocked and surprised seeing two women in their forties behaving like teens on vacation. During the announcement they mention to be happy to see some smiley faces on board. 🙂

 

20170226_131721Arghhh… in Frankfurt the hand luggage checking starts again. By the time we arrive at our gate we are one of the last to board. No problem, we have reserved seats with extra leg room… jealousy and irritated faces throughout the flight of people queuing for the bathrooms. Guess they think we are some arrogant – euhm – “women” who refuse to make room for the people waiting…

I so miss flying business for business now…
