Around the World for the 1st time [Day 1] Now it’s time to travel around the world for the first time!
I have traveled with Oneworld on all four of my world trips. My first trip around the world, first time in business class, first time in many countries. I am so excited! First, I will go to Heathrow Airport in England. After a transit there, I will fly to Barcelona, Spain.
Business class is spacious! You can stretch your legs! You can lie down fully flat! Like a secret base, there are switches all over the place, and I was so excited! As I was giggling with excitement with my mermaid, the flight attendant came to greet me. When I told her that I was going on my first trip around the world, she was so happy to see me and I was so happy to see her!
The panel in front of us allows us to check our current location and watch movies as much as we want. We ordered our evening meal by remote control. The window offers a variety of views. I think pilots have an amazing job to be able to see such wonderful scenery every day.
Arriving at Heathrow Airport, the mermaid with over 100ml of lotion or cream or something in her luggage was caught by the security check and was scolded. I snapped a picture of her, but I was also scolded for taking that picture (lol).
Heathrow airport has a gloomy atmosphere, and I didn’t like it, but I had no choice. Then, after killing some time in the lounge, we were in transit to Barcelona. It was suddenly a long flight and I was tired.
Aeropuerto de Barcelona-El Prat
Then we arrived in Barcelona and took a chartered cab to the hotel located right in front of the Sagrada Familia. Since it was late at night when we arrived at the hotel, we decided to officially check in the next day and were let into our room anyway. It was more like an airbnb condo than a hotel! And I was already exhausted!
The Day 1 article that was posted on the site that disappeared was still on my PC, so I am posting it below
I am going on a round-the-world trip starting today. I live in Kyoto, but I had work in Tokyo the day before, so I stayed at the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu. I could spend hours watching airplanes from the observation deck. Even at night, I can see planes resting from the window. They look so cute as if they are resting their wings. The day of departure. I rent the Imoto Wi-Fi that the mermaid arranged for me at the counter. I meet up with the mermaid at the Sakura Lounge. We grab a beer and get on the plane. My first round-the-world trip, my first business class flight. I was excited.
Sitting in the business class seat, I was surrounded by many devices such as seat adjustment buttons, power supply, remote control, etc. I was playing with them like a child. While I was playing with them like a child, a CA came to greet me. I didn’t know that in Business and First Class, each passenger is greeted one by one. I told her that I was going on a round-the-world trip, and we had a great time.
After enjoying all the firsts such as in-flight meals and movies, we arrived at Heathrow Airport in London for transit. 12 hours flight, but I was not tired because the business class seat was flat and I could sleep. When I stepped out of the plane and looked outside, the sky was overcast. The mermaid was caught at the baggage check at immigration. They open all the baggage we took out of the plane. I saw that there were many tubes and containers of cosmetic creams that were over 100ml…. Oi oi oi, don’t bring that on board…. It was completely the mermaid’s fault. I was lectured by her and managed to get through the flight with a smile on my face.
I went into the lounge and took a break. However, I was disappointed to find that this lounge only had cookies, snacks, juice, and other snacks. The internet was working fine. Still no use of Imoto Wi-Fi.
From here, I will fly to Madrid, Spain. The flight time is about 2 hours and 20 minutes. I took a hired car and checked into a hotel in front of the Sagrada Familia. It was late at night, so the staff could not help us, so we just completed the minimum formalities and entered the room. Because of the old structure, there is only a staircase. My suitcase was heavy, but I did my best.
The room is large enough to share a room, with two bedrooms. There is also a kitchen where you can cook your own meals. The stove can only be lit with a match or a lighter, but that’s not a problem. The kitchen is fully equipped with tableware and utensils. Each room has an oil heater for heating, and the silhouette of the Sagrada Familia is faintly visible outside the window.
I boiled some water, drank a cup of hot tea, and took a break. This is where the transformer came in handy. After taking a shower, we went to our rooms and finished the first day.
