Our journey home starts today. We had breakfast at the hotel and took their shuttle to the airport. We tried the self-check-in machines but they did not have Qatar Airways as an option. I asked a queue attendant and was told we needed to go to terminal 3. We got to terminal 3 and found we were in the right place in terminal 2 but that we had to go to the counter as self-check-in wasn’t available. Not a good start to the day.
We wandered back, found the right counters and checked in ok. We went through security and filled in some time waiting to be called to board. We were again on a new 787-800 plane. After take-off we realised there were a lot of spare seats further back so we relocated to an exit row where we had the 3 seats to ourselves and lots of leg room. It would be so nice to have that same situation for the 13 hour flight still to come. We are in Doha airport as I write this. The flight to Doha from Copenhagen was just under 6 hours and again they did the right thing and dodged Ukraine and Iraq.
I guess this is the end of the blog as we will be home tomorrow (later today your time). I hope I didn’t bore you. Europe was lovely, with many highlights. We have over 1000 photos so the few you have seen on the blog are just the tip of the iceberg. Prague and Copenhagen were our stand out favourites. What struck us was how easy it is to move from one country to the next in Europe. No border control at all when travelling within Europe except in Russia. Only in Germany did we encounter a few folk with very little English. The Autobahns in Germany were a blast. It freaked us out a few times when cruising around 150km/hr when cars zipped by us like we were standing still.
Until next time…..
