Crazy flight to Tokyo

Yesterday we started our trip to Japan. In a group of 6 people we experienced a very funny flight to Tokyo. The flight took off form Incheon. But already at the check in we took longer than usual as Kimberly had no multiple entery visa for Korea. That ended in a long discussion with the airport employee but finally it was no problem as people from Sweden do not need a multiple entery visa. Unfortunately the airport personal did not know that. After the check in we went to eat and prepared early engough for boarding – at least we thought. ;) Because it was time for the plain to leave the airport at the time when we appeard at the custom control. Therefore the airplain crew was already waiting for us und one stewardess joind us running to the gate. When we arrived at the plain everyone else was already sitting on their places – that somehow reminded me of the flight from Munich to Seoul, where we even missed the security instruction! ;) The flight itself was very nice and we even got something to eat during the 1.5 hour flight. But due to the weather conditions we had a very turbolent flight so we more or less felt like beeing in a rollercoaster and enjoyed the weired feeling falling into air holes. Finally after a safe landing in Tokyo and leaving the plain Philipp could not find his passport anymore. We knew that there was not much time left until the last possibility to get into town would be gone. Therefore we looked everywhere but could not find it. He then went back to the plane. When he came back he did not look relaxed anymore as the plane was already gone!
Luckily we had one of the last flights arriving in Tokio and the chance was hight that the plane still was somewhere on the ground. The airport personal was very helpful and within 10 minutes Philipp was smiling again. Getting through the custom control in Tokio was the next barrier to manage, and that actually showed up to be very thought. The frist problem was that Mike‘s colleague Paul, who lives in Tokyo organized the hotel for us. Therefore we did not know the address that we where especially asked for to mention on the formula. After some discussion Paul‘s phone number was enough and we thought – that was it. But no! Inga and Johannes did not appear… and not appear… and not appear. In the meantime we met Paul who already got a bit nervous because of the last bus running soon…
After several minutes Inga and Johannes stept out of the custom control with a big smile in their faces. Inga had problems entering Japan as she mentioned Paul on her form. The custom personal therefore asked her in detail who he is and what he does here. The issue was that Inga did not even know Paul and had no idea. ;)
We finally made it to our hotel, guided by Paul who told us many interesting facts about Japan and the japanese lifestyle already.

  • Hey, actually I have not updated my blog for ages. You reminded me that its gonna be time to maintain it – thanks for that! :)
    As I have not been doing anything with wordpress since my exchange semester in 2010/2011 my knowledge about it is not too big.
    But I have searched a bit and found a plug-in that sounds like being the right solution for you:
    Twitter Tools according to itself ‘is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account.’
    I hope this will help you. Have fun!
