First leg of our trip: Barcelona – Amsterdam –Shanghai.


Leaving home on August the first looked a bad idea if you consider how many people travel, how many flights are cancelled and how many delayed. But, dear friends if one wants to pay less for air tickets you must be prepared to assume some risks.

We arrived to the airport an hour and a half before departure time, checked our stuff without problems and we got different seats at the very last moment.

Overbooking? I don’t know nobody explained to us. We flight in Business class (I knew that travelling with laptop is a good idea) from BCN to Amsterdam and we were assigned row 1 of our plane that was a Jumbo 747. It was my first time in a 747 but not my father’s that began swearing about the bad luck we have had (They’re rather old planes and besides ours was a mixed cargo and people plane).




And guess what, I have no idea but they put us in Business class again from Amsterdam to Shanghai. The food was probably the worst I’ve ever had in a plane and may be the smallest portions ever… but a seat that can recline 180 degrees bedlike I would say it’s just a great recipe for a great smile and a nice arrival to you middle destination.

Ah, my hotel is also wonderful, cheap and it has a gym for the old man. Superb start
