I have not been writing lately, as I was in Athens, visiting my family and friends there and solving bureaucratic matters. Yesterday was the day to return back to Switzerland.
The flight was scheduled at 8:30 in the morning. My sister and my dad brought me to the airport and on our way there we saw a beautiful sunrise. Thanks to my family, time in the airport passed fast and before long I was sitting in the plane.
I like flying in spring! The weather can be nice and the views amazing! I already posted the beautiful photos of my way from Zurich to Athens in my post A beautiful flight. Unfortunately, in this flight I was sitting a bit closer to the wing, so photos were not so easy.
We flew towards the north from the western side of Greece, over the mountains of Pindos and the town of Ioannina. I saw Tirana, the capital of Albania, and then the coast of Croatia. It was nice the plane had screens showing the route we were following, so I could identify a few places more!
Soon enough we flew over the Alps again! This time from the south to the north.
In the last part of the flight we flew somewhere over the borders of Austria and Germany, so I saw a really nice river (not sure if it was the Salzach or the Inn) and the Bodensee (called Lake Constance in English)!
Around 10.15 we landed in Zurich. Leaving one home and arriving in another! The rest is a routine for me: exit the plane, get my luggage, take the train and arrive home. Well, not this time! I arrived at the belt and waited for my luggage until everybody left and I was left alone… My suitcase was not there!
After filing the report, I managed to take the train, almost an hour later than expected. I arrived home empty-handed and a bit sad. During the last 10 years of my life, I have been flying several times per year. It is the first time that my suitcase was lost.
Early today I got a phone call from the lost and found service of the airport, that my suitcase is found! They delivered it around noon and this adventure ended well!
