Yesterday felt like the longest day.
The morning started well, Jake and I left early to go up to Landvetter airport. 12 days of holiday ahead of us. I was ‘selling’ Jake Arlanda airport, telling him how nice it was, our stop over was 2.5hours, until next flight. Planned for us to have a nice relaxed breakfast whilst doing a bit of work before we arrived to England.
It totally changed when we found out bags were missing! As we had a few hours things would hopefully work out anyway.
Unhelpful baggage services sent us to terminal 2 first, then off to terminal 5, where a man said go to terminal 4, then back to terminal 5. Everyone sent us in different directions – between the terminals we ran, in total 6km, like mad people.
Personally I have never experienced such chaos in an airport before regarding baggage. When we managed to get through there was a very slim chance of us getting onto that plane – nor our bags. I felt angry and sad. One lady, our saviour, said – I’ll check you in. Such a star, she give us the smiles back!
Stressful start to say the least, with no food in our stomaches. Time was now 11. Glad to be sat on the plane!
However, half way through the flight a poor man had a heart attack. We diverted for an emergency landing in Amsterdam.
Such a horrid situation at the time with the helpless man fighting for his life. Heartless people started taking photos of the whole situation. At this point I was so angry. Like how can you not show any respect? I wanted to scream, cry and throw those phones and people off the plane. The stewardesses handled it very well. Credit to those girls. Bless the man who was fighting for his life and hope he’s well today.
On arrival, Thursday afternoon, we learned that our luggage never left Sweden.
Absolutely speechless at this point- HANGRY as hell and tired. But what can you do really.
We’re going to a wedding this weekend so that makes me the most upset, I was so happy for my outfit I bought…
Everything works out in the end, and it’s only material things but a day like this with such highs and lows, handling all sorts of feelings, you kinda get to know yourself a bit more. Stress is not for me.
Enjoy your weekend!
We’re on our way to the wedding venue.
