Hi all Renae and I are currently chilling in the Amsterdam airport after the longest flight ever! 13 hours from Guangzhou to here with lame old movies and food that was passable at best :/ luckily when we arrived we spotted a Starbucks straight away and were immediately feeling 100 times better! This airport is very cool and modern (particularly compared to Guangzhou) and has heaps of comfy couches and places to plug in your phone/laptop, not to mention a library, museum and decent free wifi! Needless to say the 4 hours here have passed much quicker than our last stopover.
In an hour we will be boarding our final flight on our trip to Edinburgh and thankfully it only goes for an hour and a half so will seem like a trip to Brisbane. After the last flight which seemed like we had been sucked into a black hole with no time change and made us seriously question whether travelling was worth it, we are actually starting to get pretty excited now that we are so close to arriving. Apparently it is 5*C in Edinburgh so that will be a nice shock when we leave the airport. Local time will be 10am so we are planning to dump our luggage at the hotel then go exploring for the afternoon before heading back for an early night to hopefully ward off any jet lag! Will let you know how that plan goes!!
I hear it has been hailing back home so I hope no one had any damage from it and that the lovely hot weather continues so you can all be jealous of our white Christmas :P
Talk soon, Claire
