Just a quick note to let you know I made it safely to Doha, and to Denny's villa.
My flights today went ok - I got to see Athens and Bahrain along the way, which was nice - and landed right on time with my luggage following me. Very happy about that since on my last study trip my luggage was missing for a day or two.
The EasyJet flight was fast, and it was my first time flying Gulf Air and I have to say that it wasn't bad...very quick and no hassles.
1. Hearing Silver Bells playing throughout the Athens airport. Silver Bells? Really? And it was the Bing arrangement too.
2. Didn't have to take my laptop out at Bahrain or Doha, or my travel liquids. Nice.
3. New arrivals area at the Doha airport made passport check and visa a LOT faster. Much better than my first experience in line for an hour.
