Journey to Brazil - From Frankfurt to Paris
FuFu Journey to Brazil - Part One
From Frankfurt to Paris | 22nd July 2010
Checked-in and got the boarding passes in the morning!
My journey to Latin America started on the 22nd of July (2010). Flying with Air France, flight AF2319 - Voyageur, Airbus A319.
(19:05) Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) Germany
(20:25) Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG), Paris, France
Staying nearly ten months in Frankfurt Germany (two semester), i am continuing my third exchange semester to Curitiba, Brazil for a research project. It was drizzling since the morning. I knew He didn't want me to leave the country but i already had the flight ticket purchased flying to Brazil. Anyway i have decided to spend another ten months slowly and thoroughly travelling here and there in a completely new continent, Latin America.
Frankfurt International Airport is approximately half an hour away from the dormitory by subway and train. And due to i had one big baggage and two middle-sized hand carry bags and a DSLR bag for Canon 450D, i checked-in my large baggage in the morning and got my boarding passes to Paris and Rio de Janerio. After having my late lunch and updating my Facebook status, i met Juan who still hadn't left to Mälmo, Sweden for the exchange semester, and then headed to the airport at 4:30pm.
It was gloomy in Frankfurt but was sunny in Paris. As usual i was taking hundreds of pictures from my hostel to the airport and on the plane. I would never feel boring or lonely even though most of the time i travel alone. I always check-in early and request for or reserve (when i book the ticket online) window seat because the sky has no limit. Also i can observe and enjoy the landscaping of a city or country like a bird. I always get to snap awesome and different pictures. My Canon EOS 450D, Ixy 60 and Little FuFu are my best companions, always.
** Sorry for being late! Since i am done with my Merdeka/Malaysia Project and FuFu Love Story, now i would like to start sharing my journey from Germany to Brazil as well as life and travelling here in Latin America. Expect MANY pictures from me. Are you ready? XD **
Taking Aerotrain to Terminal 2 where SkyTeam partners are based.
The frequent of the train is every 5minutes.
Next station --> Terminal 2.
Heading to Paris Charles De Gaulle International Airport.
Got the SkyTeam mileages updated here. FuFu had almost forgot!
Waiting for the on-board calling.
Wonder how is the flight with Luftansa? Next time gotta try!
On the bus heading to the Airbus A319.
This is Airbus A319 with the staff loading passengers' baggage.
FuFu's first flight with Air France.
It started raining again.
Luckily the flight took off as scheduled despite the bad weather.
A steady take-off from Air France. Check out the video!
The take-off was super stable.
And you see the ground like a piece of ocean on top of certain height.
On top of the first layer of cloud. And you can see other level of cloud.
Phew... the weather was super nice outside of Germany!
Soon or later, flight attendants were all busy moving hear and there.
Refreshing tissue, snacks and drinks served. Enjoying the flight!
Thanks Mother Nature for the visual entertainment!
The Sun too popped up!
And joined the performance entertaining FuFu.
Was feeling extraordinary peace. Gonna love France!
FuFu seriously enjoyed the show!
The airbus was flying lower.
On top of French territory.
It's located far away from the city.
Just like other major international airports.
"Dear all cabin crews, get ready for landing."
"Sir, please put your seat in upright position."
Yeah. Soon will be arriving Paris!
A smooth landing! Check out the video! Good job Air France!
Safely touched down Charles de Gaulle International Airport.
Heading to the arrival terminal!
