Finally m sitting down! This was my first international trip and boy! was it looooongg! lol! I was not nervous at all=> bravery runs thru ma "Greek" blood! It was nice to get into such a huge plane! 270 or more passenger capacity! except for too many crying babies in the middle of a random nap, its was a good trip!
I was numbed by the urge to getting into the Cape Town plane without any trouble. Then I felt that ama miss my fiancée Monty, but I didn't know by how much till i was activity-less on air over Africa! shucks! All i could think of was her....her....AAND her! I miss her...

Istanbul was cloudy when we got there @ 06:00Hrs but soon cleared up to an amazing 25 degrees or higher! Siphokazi & I split to freshen up in bathrooms, then we waited (sleepy) in random seats till the boarding of the Helsinki flight....Then Monty called me!! I was so glad coz my international Vodacom roaming is floppy! it caught on for a few minutes and she chose just those seconds! God bless her!

We got to Helsinki & I had a smashing headache (air pressure as the plane descended). We took bus 615 (driver doesn't know English!) to Helsinki Railway station and waited for our train to Joensuu & Kuopio. Fancy trains these people got! shoo! and its fast...it was going at an average speed of 140km/hr for like 4 hours till we got to the Kuopio station. Mikko & Bennett were waiting for us and took us to do some basic food shopping..then to the cribs for briefing and stuff. The apartments are 3 bedroomed and r cool, m still alone but Mikko & Bennett made sure we are settled well.They are a cool pair.....:-)

I bought the wrong South Africa-> Europe adapter so my laptop was in trouble. Bennett and I ended up agreeing to cut my laptop plug off and use the wires in the socket! LOL! It works...each of us has a modem with unlimited internet. At 22:00Hrs I managed to see Monty & Dee (They showed me my favourite chicken curry over video n made me drool!) on Skype...she smiled so much it broke my heart...
