Well it wouldn’t be interesting if there wasn’t a hitch!
Arriving for my layover in Paris slightly ahead of schedule, I thought I would encounter smooth sailing all the way to Athens. But 30 minutes dashing through an airport (after being falsely promised my arriving and departing planes were located in the same terminal), a security check and an almost-boarding of a plane later, I was stopped three feet from the door of the aircraft due to fuel leaking from the wing. As if that weren’t exciting enough, I got to witness Paris Airport’s Fire Department at their finest! (Okay – maybe not their finest, but still kinda cool 🙂 )
On the bright side: Welcome to Europe where Orangina is the norm, not the exception 😀
At the end of the day… I arrived safely at my destination and updated this post from my clean, friendly hostel. I’m off to grab a bite before hitting the hay and getting an early start to tomorrow.
