about how to prepare for a journey part 2

Let's admit it: we all loved "Lost" before it went crazy and a few of you might have had their thoughts crossed on a similar situation when going overseas. However impossible that may seem, a "regular" evac can be caused by much lesser things. And although I deeply believe in my cockpit and cabin crews, I always take my most important papers, passports, purse, keys, travel documents in a separate little bag with me that can be kept attached to my body all the time. It's usually a small handbag with a long strap worn across my body. Should the unimaginable be about to happen, I'm saving myself a lot of trouble renewing all those documents proving I'm myself. And let's not speak about the money and time...Knowing myself I'd be crying more about a lost book or a fancy high-end mag anyway...

Be safe, take care and hugs&kisses

about how to prepare for a journey part 1

Just came back home from a day spent in the tube, aka my favourite transport: an A320, my livingroom, bedroom,kitchen(ette...)and SPA-area shared with hundreds of...guests!Todays' destinations have been Warsaw and Valencia, though I'd only like to remember the last one, considering the temperature...As I always try to prolong the warm and sunny days, I figured out to only spend the months from october to april in the sunny states of the world.But getting to the airport or coming back home, sundrenched, to icicles on nearly everything, I had to improve my wardrobe to get adjusted to the climatic catastrophes I was facing.I'm happy to live right next to the airport of Duesseldorf, especially during those nasty early shift periods..., but those 15min can be cold, when you try to pack as less warm clothes as possible for 3 weeks in Miami. So I wear my coat or jacket with pride exactly upon arrival at the gate, where it gets stuffed into a pillow case, that I ALWAYS bring with me for any kind of travel. That way I always have a comfy pillow without the saliva stains from god-knows-who provided by the nice collegue , no extra wardrobe to stow away. I recently considered sewing some carrying straps on it. I'll let you know how that works out...

See you,hang on and always happy landings!
