Made it to Greece!

By | September 24, 2009

Hello Fabulous Followers,
My trip from Spain to Greece sounded really close until I realized it took me less time when I flew from Toronto via Madrid! How so? Well, the direct flight from Toronto took about seven hours and twenty minus versus my thirteen hour journey to Greece!! AHHHHH, I know!!!
I took the train from Granollers (outside Barcelona) to the airport at 11:30 a.m. which took one hour. I checked in my suitcase 2 hours advanced and then flew at 2:30 p.m. with Span Air. That flight took almost one and half hours which wasn’t so bad. Then in Madrid I was at the airport for a lovely four hours!!! I checked in to Swiss Air two hours before departure, which by the way I had to throw things away again because I was 12 kilos over!! AH!!Gosh, Elaine will she ever learn??? LOL I paid $80 CDN for extra kilos when leaving Toronto to Madrid and then threw more things away when flying from Ibiza to Barcelona and then again in Madrid!! Note to self for next time: Pack Light Elaine!!!!
My flight from Madrid was to Zurich and from there I connected on a flight to Thessaloniki which means I landed at 1:40 a.m. ( which is 12:40 a.m. Spanish time)!!!! Thirteen hours!!! LOL
My cousin Lefteris picked me up from the airport with his friend. This cousin I have actually never met before in my life and only started chatting two days via facebook!! And then people say Facebook is bad!!!!! It connects people alright! My cousin is super nice and I am lucky to be here with him. After we arrived to his house and started speaking Greek with him, the whole journey didn’t seem to matter anymore. I am in glorious Greece!!
xx Elaine
