It's way too early in the morning, and the sun hadn't even started thinking about getting up yet. I on the other hand, was rolling out of bed, very glad I had prepped everything the day before so that I was all ready to get out the door at 03:30 AM.
Off I go to The Airport Express train - which by the way is an amazing thing to have close by. It so beats taking a cab, both in time and cost.

Finally at Oslo Airport, I was waving my "controlled" lifestyle away for a week, and drank orange juice to my hearts content! Mmmmm, lovely. Then I added a bit of shrimp sandwich with mayo (which cost more then a dinner at a restaurant I might add - insane prices at the airport...) and then it kinda snowballed from there, and it was lovely. Let's call it a "food-cheat-week"! :)

As I was ready for take-off, the sun finally came crawling up over the hills to say goodbye at around 06:30 in the morning.

|Hello again KLM|
And off we go! Bye bye Norway! See you later snow, California here we come! Wohoo! :) I've always loved flying!

On the first flight I was enjoying tons of space on front row, stretching my legs and enjoying the view as I was snapping away with my camera.
|Gotta love KLM|
And then in mid-air, I found this in my seat pocket - Holland Herald - you'll find one of these on every KLM flight, and for the most part I don't find this magazine too interesting, but this cover caught my eye, and no wonder.
The cover is by Carl Hermès! A little inspirational photography - what could be better?

Inside was his beautiful collection that he did in collaboration with KLM called Sky High. Here are some of my favorites:
Absolutely amazing. I have to say it was the most enjoyable Tax Free browsing in a magazine I've ever done. Love it. :)
And guess what, my knitting needles of bamboo came with me without problems all the way, so here I am knitting my way half way around the globe...

And then finally, after the last thirteen hours in the air, it was time to land in San Francisco. I was tired and drained after not sleeping the entire trip. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to sleep while flying.
