… to let you know that I am currently sitting at Dubai Airport (a big yay for hotspots!).
The flight was a bit bumpy, but with a soft landing. Those 6 hours took me 5000 km away from Germany, which is not even a third of the total distance (18400 km). Over here in Dubai it’s half past seven (so for me it’s 4:30 am and I’ve only slept like an hour on the plane. Ouch.), it’s relatively warm and the airport is huge. In about three hours I will leave Dubai with an Airbus 340 and I’ll be on my way to Auckland (apparently with a small stop in Brisbane).
I still can’t believe this is happening, somehow. For weeks and months I’ve been working towards that goal and now that the day has finally come, it all seems so surreal. I can’t even think about the fact that I had to leave everybody behind, in Germany, or I’ll start crying like immediately.
Anyhow, love you and miss you all lots.
