Plane from Texas

Time to head outta Texas and get back to Sweden.

Here’s what planes look like in Texas of course.



Idiots on a plane

A very loud and annoying Swedish woman was sitting in my aisle on the AIR FRANCE plane back to Stockholm.

(Safety announcements given in Swedish, English and then a recording in Swedish….)

Lady: Why can’t they have an actual person giving the instructions in Swedish? They should have a real person speaking Swedish and not a recording!

(We are on an Air FRANCE flight. You’re lucky they even bothered with the recording.)

Lady speaking to friend: You know I found this international book site where you can buy books a lot cheaper than in Sweden, but they mainly had English books! (outraged look)  I don’t want to read books in English, I want to read them in Swedish!

(Umm… then maybe buy them in Sweden?)

Then to top it off, when the food card came around, the woman speaks perfect English to order her meal.


The airport is a strange place.

At least to a 6 year old.

After going through security the other day, my 6 year old son spotted a man with a turban put something in his pocket.  He came up and whispered to me, “Mamma, the man with the Egypt hat just hid a snake in his pocket!”

I had a chance to correct his view, tell him he must have seen it wrong or point out how a snake probably couldn’t fit in that pocket.

Instead I replied, “Cool!”
