So yesterday, we flew from the Middle East to Africa, living a #Travelife.
Door-to-door from Asia, the whole journey until we crashed into this lovely boutique hotel by the sea took just over 30 hours because a flight schedule change on the part of the airline flying out of Asia, after we booked our tickets.
This left us with little choice but to take an earlier flight and wait six hours in a Middle East airport.

COMPLAINTS AND NO COMPLAINTS
I can tell you that I was far from pleased with this, especially with an extremely busy schedule that suddenly cut my precious time in Manila by six hours.
At the same time, I really shouldn’t complain, although as a consumer, I did pay for my ticket so I should be entitled to do so.
A NICE LOUNGE
AND A FLAT BED ALL THE WAY
The six-hour wait was at one of the best airline lounges in the world right now.
Then, we were in the first row all the way on three planes, and with the exception of a short 90-minute hop on an African domestic carrier, it was a flat bed all the way with a decent selection of movies and a decent selection of food.
I slept for the most part.
THE LAST MEAL WAS THE BEST
The best part about all the meals was the last meal before landing in Africa.
How’s that for saving the best for last?
We had a linguine, which didn’t at all look promising at first glance, but it turned out to be so good that I had two orders since meals on this airline for business class are a la carte, like in a restaurant.
Then for dessert, we had an absolutely scrumptious chocolate tart from Laduree which was truly wonderful.
So wonderful, in fact, that I had three chocolate tarts to celebrate the end of a very long journey and the start of a new adventure in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful #Travelife.
