Where in the World is Dan O?
Traveling to Europe. Day started off alright, woke up and finished packing. Became stressed out not by the fact im leaving but by my mother becoming more stressed than I was. The ride up to the airport was good but still tireing. I after a long wait in line to check my baggage, United has the WORST system, I said my goodbyes to my friends, parents, and grandparents. I will miss them all. The wait was sure fun. After passing through security checkpoints and seeing people "RANDOMLY" be pulled aside for a security check, I was worried that I would be one too, I was off to Seattle. Fortunatley I shaved that morning and I passed with ease. So onto the flights. Oh the fun flights. Rode a pond skipper to seattle where the whole flight i wondered the possibility of the prop exploding, it could quite simply cut me in half. Once in Seattle, I met up with Alie, my travel buddy, and jumped on the SAS flight. OOOOHHH man was that COOL!. I love trans atlanic flights. The flight was very enjoyable. In the seat ahead of you, you had a personal video screen where you could watch movies, listen to music, view inflight maps and cameras, and play video games. That was tight. The games were somewhat lame but they did the job on quick entertainment. What really made the trip cool was watching the nose cam on takeoff and landing. I have videos of those. I took a sleeping pill somewhere around hour 4 of my trip on SAS and awoke with 2 hours to spare before landing in Copenhagen. In all a 15 hour plane trip just to copenhagen. This was when our luck ran out. We left Seattle about 5 minutes late and arrived in Denmark 30 minutes late. We litterly ran to the our next pond skipping plane on the other side of the airport. We were sweaty, tired and frustraded because of the security checkpoints. Once on board we relaxed for 40 minutes then waited for 20 minutes for our luggage. I guess our luggage was not as quick as we were when catching the flight from Copenhagen to Aarhus. Luggageless we made our way to our business academy in Aarhus because we were on a time restraint. Some representives of the university stayed late in order to let us into our rooms and we had to meet them. They were so helpful. They helped us track down our bags and found that they were still in Copenhagen. So 8 hours and a tone of stress later we finally recieve our bags. We could finally shower! oh what a relief. EXCEPT the fact that my bathroom is 5 ft x 5 ft and the shower head is attached to the sink. When you take a shower, you must get everything wet: sink toiet, and everything else. I quickly repacked and we crashed in apartment that Alie has and left the next morning at 6 am for Ireland. It was a CRAZY day, but it has provieded some interesting inisite on how to retrieve your luggage when in Denmark.
