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.


Seated.


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.


Flying higher!


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!




Magnificent!


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!

To be continued!

micki said...

You were so busy on the plane in taking lots of good pictures! That was great! Time goes so fast, isn't it? You have been in Brazil almost 3 months now! Glad to know that you are heading to other countries to explore! :)

Twilight said...

Very interesting photos and details, better than tourist brochures! If I have a brother like you, I would call you FuFu-Chiao..! LOL.... kekekeke





Coz FuFu flies here and there like a bird.

三吉 said...

我喜欢那张拍到太阳的那一张。。

Winnt said...

搭飞机最幸福的事就是坐在靠窗边,穿越夜晚看星河到早上看日出,旁晚看日落和彩霞...单独行就特别要求靠窗,1人以上也更定是坐靠窗.....但东和西没有分好就看不到日落或日出了...前几次就是这样....anyway, take flight, train,ferry or bus, choose the window seat are always full of happiness ya...U too

古小玉 said...

巴西女孩热情又奔放,可以考虑在那里找个女朋友。呵呵。

古小玉 said...

你不是一只没有脚的小鸟,而是一只不想停的小鸟。

Agnes Valerie said...

wa....flying again..and this time is to france.

U really like to fly around wo...
There are many places which i wish to go, but I feel so lazy when i think about sitting in the plane for a few hours. And also really don like to wait for boarding. So boring. Every time when I need to fly, I will feel so depressed.

Hope to get some nice stories from u about France.

Che-Cheh said...

Thanks for taking us with you along the journey to Paris. The sceneries are beautiful up there. :)

Pete said...

Sure is nice to travel so often. I wish I could do that! Take care Bro! Have a nice trip!

嘿嘿 said...

是雨还是泪?也许留下许多情在欧洲呗?要不,老天怎会酱多情,流起泪来呢?

哈哈~ 从实招来!

Awaiting yr Iguazu Falls trips!


bluedreamer27 said...

London Caller said...

Have you seen the latest video clip about Cebu cabin crew giving funny safety instructions in dance?!?

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

"I always check-in early and request for or reserve ... window seat because the sky has no limit" - hahaha, I like what you said. Same here too Fufu, I'm all for window seat because there's plenty of sights to look at and take pictures of.
