Today I have been telling myself: one step at a time.
I started the day of with a nice long shower and was thinking “mmhh, when will be the next time, I’ll get to enjoy this” and I spent about 2hrs in my bathroom- and as most of you know it’s not exactly a spa temple 😉
After finishing the last bits and pieces at home, I was picked up by the “Romme Club” to go to the airport where Monika, Christiane and Mollie where already waiting for me. It was so nice to have a goodbye committee! Thanks guys!
At the checkin counter everything with my big bag was fine, but then I was asked to put my carry-on on to the scales and the guy frowned.
“That’s 11kg and you have a backpack and a laptop, too?!?”
“Uhm well yeah?!”
“And it’s just you traveling?”
“Well that’s too much. I’ll have to check with someone.”
I had a brief adrenalin shock but then a supervisor approached us and smiled at Monika.
“Ah you again. We know each other right?!”
“Well that’s fine then.”
Puuuhhhh…I was prepared to pay for an extra checked bag.
Now I am just hanging at the gate texting with friends and taking last minute calls. I know Joseph is already waiting for me at Windhoek so everything is running as planned.
Next step: getting my visa approved!
Next time you here from me, I’ll be in Windhoek! REKERA!
