Hit our first annoying travel hurdle this morning while checking in at Paris for our flight to Seoul. Our bags exceeded the allowable weight, we'd had to buy a 3rd suitcase for our tour souvenirs! The silly woman at check-in sent the first bag off and then told us the total weight was too much, unfortunately the bag that had disappeared was the easy one to take weight out of as it had the books, maps and brochures all in a separate bag. But no, we had to scratch around in the remaining 2 cases to try to get rid of the extra kilos. Managed to get close enough to make the check-in people happy, but are now stuck carrying around a plastic carry bag with 6kg of stuff in it - bugga!
Nothing major with the flight over except that we were on the window side of the set of seats rather than the aisle side. So when the man next to me fell asleep we were stuck! He was also a largish fellow and spilled over to my seat a bit...so I snuggled up closer to Dave.
We are now sitting in the Rest and Relaxation area at Incheon Airport in Seoul. A nice quiet area with free wifi. We're trying to stay awake even though our bodies are telling us it's the wee hours of the morning. We have a 7 hour wait for our flight to Auckland so might be fighting a losing battle there. Dave plans to have a shower and find a lie down place - I'm thinking of getting my nails done!
...OK update a few hours later...Dave had a shower, then we found a bench and went to sleep! I then had a shower. Still feel a bit groggy, must be time for coffee then off to final flight home.
In next day or so will put up a final summary and maybe a few extra shots of the trip.
