With no much more to do than entertain myself with my little netbook. Been at the airport since just before 1pm, time to leave Warsaw for this time … I have a feeling that I will be back.
Sue@WordsVisual, my travel mate for 5 fantastic days here i Warsaw … took off 15.20 with destination Gatwick, London … and at that time I had 5 hours still to kill at Lotnisko Warszawa airport.
I followed her to the passport control, me … don’t need passport more than for the check in.
Now I have just enjoyed “Fish & Chips” Polish style, not bad at all and the the home-made tartar sauce was good as my own.
There will be a coffee before I walk over to Gate 41.
All this because I booked the wrong month on my return flight. Not that I wouldn’t mind staying a bit longer, but until 27th of Febr. 2017, a bit too ambitious.
I was in rush when I got the mail about that my original booking the departure time had been forward to 06.30 out of Malmö … not able to get to the airport for flights before 10.30 am.
Had to cancel that flight and then book one with Lot Airlines, and I must had been checking some destinations for next year and the dates for in February so the website gave that home-bound month.
This I notice on yesterday evening, when I was going to check in online yesterday evening. There was no departure … then I saw it FEBR!!!!!
So panic, panic … PANIC. Manage to get a flight back home as planed today …. but it made my bank account a fair bit lighter, the flight for this visit has now totally gone to 4.410SEK – I could have flown to Chicago for that.
But done is done … this is the second time I “fuck up” an air ticket. Last time I gave myself the same surname as my first name. That time was I going to Prague. Maybe I will learn from this one.
I don’t know if I will be able to post this evening, because my little fancy mousse has given up and I can’t edit image through using the navigation plate.
Fully understand that the mouse has given up, I have a bit of the same feeling .. after what happened the last 16 hours.
The taxi that picked us up from the hotel wanted 90PLN – I asked as we took of from the hotel … and I said no way, let us out the car. 90PLN????!!!!! So got another taxi and he said maximum 40 and it came to 29.80. That is the 2 second time that the taxis tried to overcharge us. So always ask what the fare will be before enter the car.
This is not good for Warsaw, but I don’t think it will stop me for coming back. Because now I how to observant when I book and to ask first.I only hope I will remember it!!!!!
“A problem is a chance for you to do your best.”
P.S. went to travel shop … and got a new mouse – with Polish soccer players on and my flight is just announced to be 1 hour late. Happy Days!
Home at midnight, great!!! …and I’m sure there will be another story to be told tomorrow.
