12th of September 2015
Are we going to travel or not…???

«We only want to help you», insist the ground hostesses at Istanbul’s airport.

I should have imagined, when I was buying the one way tickets, that such a perplex fare, with three different airlines, (which needed two days before its final confirmation), would hold some surprises for us.

At last, there comes an annoyingly smiling Turkish guy, who explains that they can’t give us boarding cards for the flight Singapore-Auckland and that if we are not allowed to embark on Air New Zealand’s aircraft, (the third airline which will take us till Auckland) we will have to return back. Moreover, he is asking us to sign a document, which they have prepared for exactly this purpose.

How can anyone enjoy the journey, if he is not sure whether he will continue or not?

After all, the whole system is against any attempt to get away from the “beaten track” (which means travelling with tourist agencies, organized trips and standard fares) and creates obstacles, so as to avoid you from doing as you wish.


We will pay for our…audacity!!!

We arrive at Singapore, just before dawn, after a ten hours flight. The transit stations are closed and we wait for them to open so as to take our boarding cards. Fortunately, we have approximately two hours in between the two flights.

When, eventually, the Air New Zealand’s employee opens the counter, she asks to see our return ticket from Auckland. We explain to her that this isn’t an ordinary ticket, but a series of one way tickets, which will take us all around till Chile’s Santiago and Argentina’s Buenos Aires and then back to Europe. She finds that difficult to understand, she asks to see all the tickets and eventually she gives us the boarding cards. Relaxed, now, we stroll around the airport, only to hear, quite soon actually, a new announcement regarding us. They want us to go again to the ticket control. So, we do as we were told and they inform us that the immigration of New Zealand demands to have with us all our tickets printed, so as to check them.

What i can Say about my inspiration... for the round of the world! They will make us pay for our audacity!!!
