So we have left Asia! 24 hours, 3 continents, 2 flights and no sleep but we are finally in Spain. And I’m so freakin’ excited. Yes it’s kinda cold and yes Christmas is being forcibly rammed into every pore but still, Spain 🙂
So the flights were a nightmare, they always are, I’m a terrible flyer. I get antsy, uncomfortable, fidgety, and whiney. I basically turn into a 5 year child (sorry everyone!) Our first flight from Hanoi to Moscow was 10.5 hours, I watched 3 films, Mothers Day, Demolition and Gone With the Wind, (yes the girl that gets bored sitting through anything longer than 90 minutes at the cinema watched a four hour film!) I read the first page of my new book, Liane Moriartys Truly, Madly, Guilty and ate 2 surprisingly good aeroplane meals. We flew via the Russian airline Aeroflot and I would definitely recommend them, based on the meals alone!
Our second flight, from a freezing, freezing, freezing cold Moscow (-13 and Kerry and I were both in sandals) was delayed by 50 minutes, bad start, and had no in flight entertainment. I set my tablet up and planned to binge watch Divorce for 4 hours. I ended up watching 3 episodes plus an Aussie Come Dine With Me and gorging on food. We had another yummy aeroplane meal and finally landed in to Barcelona airport at about 11.10pm.
When we reached our hotel in the city I was so pleased to finally be horizontal. I hit the pillow and slept for a well deserved 7 hours. I woke up at 6.30am (obvs still on Vietnamese time) feeling uncharacteristically refreshed and ready to explore. I can’t wait to start our new adventure here in Spain, and I’m sure I’ll have lots to blog about and antidotes to share. For more food and travel pics please follow Without_Cruelty on Instagram ✌ ❤
