🛫Missed flight, Qatar
As a majority of you voted to write my missed flight post in stories so here it is, a long one 😁 get patient or scroll further 😛
I have never ever could imagine that something like this could happen to me. As I consider myself as a very responsible and careful person.
Anyway, when you are stuck in a traffic and you are in a super rush to get to an airport it's a one thing.
🛫However how is it possible to miss a transit flight with 6hours gap between flights?
So,i've arrived to Doha from KL, found a Gate for second flight to Istambul, got comfortable on chairs nearby,and was waiting.. I am sleepy after sleepless night but I cannot allow myself even a small nap, what if I would fall in a deep sleep and would not here my 5 the loudest sound alarms. What to do, Oh okay, I have to check an email, oh and maybe i'll finish one task for work while I have a time. So I opened up a laptop and started working. Meanwhile I constantly watched a time on a laptop not to miss a flight as Boarding starts at 5pm...and plane departure at 6pm
4:55pm,i've shut my laptop, packed it and heading to the Gates..No queue! Weird.. other flight on a screen at my Gate, and WHAIT it's 5:58pm?!! How? 😱🛫"The plane has just left! Where have you been we've been looking for you" - the guy from airlines told me.WHAT,HOW?? i've been here all the time, no announcement..(yeah In Doha airport they DON'T announce and call for whose who are late!!!)
So Basically, my laptop showed me Ukrainian time which was one hour back!!!😱
Lessons to learn: better to have some sleep before important events to be fresh.
Don't work at the last monent, it could wait, but not a plane !!
Flying just give me that calm and freedom everytime !❤️💭I will try to visit as many beautiful places as possible this year to discover of the world beauties, share my experience ➡️so let’s go to seePorto#travel#traveller#birthdayweekend#lovetofly
I’m heading back home today, back to the UK, back to my roots. It’s a long journey but I like the solitude of solo travel and I often write while I’m in the air. I’ll be in England for 3 weeks, maybe longer, so I’m tasking myself with finishing the first draft of the #createinthewild2017 book while I’m there. Have a great Sunday whatever you’re doing today, and if you’re flying too, I’ll see you in the skies!✈️
