365 days, July 15th :Far from home
From St. John’s To Dhaka
I was travelling from St. John’s To Dhaka. I started my trip by Air Canada to Toronto. We had a stop for two hours, my brother flew in from Vancouver to join me. We waited for two hours to get the next flight. After two hours we continued our journey. Our stop was at London’s Heathrow airport.
Even though we were in transit we had to go through customs which made little sense.
In London our stop was an hour and a half, it was enough time to go through customs. I don’t mind customs, but there are some weird things the authorities make us do which is take our shoes off.
From Heathrow we changed our airlines, this time it was Qatar airways. the flight took six hours to land in Bahrein and the waiting time at this airport was seven hours. It was midnight, I felt sleepy but they didn’t have any arrangement to sleep, but if we really wanted to we could sit and try to sleep on the benches in the lounge.
When the seven hours were finally over, I couldn’t wait to board the plane, we waited for the call impatiently, there was a long line. We were moving slowly, finally the door of the plane was visible, we reached there got in and took our seats.
Once again we continued our journey by Qatar Airways. We felt happy as the next stop would be our destination, Dhaka city. The plane took off on time, six hours later we landed in Dhaka City, Bangladesh.
Once again we faced customs, we weren’t carrying any gifts we just had our suitcases, where we had our personal things.
It felt good to see our siblings, they had the transportation ready for us. It was a long journey, we were glad when we reached home.
