The bus, the Visa and the flight
They say you realize what you have when you lose it. Well, I realized I really want to do this when I faced the possibility I won't make it due to a series of unfortunate events. In other words – it was at the D1 highway, around 9.30am when we got stuck in the traffic because of some idiot who decided to be an ass and crash his car. The original arrival time was 10.10am and that was not going to happen. That was the moment I started to panic and realize I REALLY wanted to go.
Long story short, we ended up having only half an hour delay so I made it to the Embassy on time to get my passport with the Visa. Because that was the reason I had to be in Prague by noon, the Visa office hours are 9-12. Lovely, but what can you do. Which brings me to: My first Visa in my passport, yipii yay. Or something.
It was a slow day in between as I had basically nothing to do besides watching tv shows and taking loooong hot shower/bath. And getting mentally ready, freaking out, breaking down, getting excited and generally the usual mix of instability in my head. But I'm getting off topic.
The flight! That part is still ahead, two hours to go. Thank you free airport wi-fi, I truly appreciate you. Also, it was nice even the flight attendant approved of my intention to travel light and having only two bags (wrapped together by foil to create ONE checked luggage - sometimes I even learn from experience), supporting my idea of „you can buy the rest there and it will be way cheaper“. Yes, I'm glad more people agree.
Also one Spiderman meme comes in mind - „Other people are out, having Valentine dinners. I'm just sitting here, waiting for my flight to Thailand.“
And one quote by Sir David Attenborough at the end: „Getting to places like Bangkok or Singapore was a hell of a sweat. But when you got there it was the back of beyond. It was just a series of small tin sheds. You felt you were really in the 'mystic east' with all these hucksters around which you were never quite sure weren't pickpockets and loose ladies.“ ...oh well, let's see how it all goes ;)
