To Paris - By Laurens Kusters

Paris, October 29, 2016

This day I was leaving the united states. I had to travel from New York to Paris. Getting on the plane was as easy as it should. When the woman at the baggage check-in saw me in my motorcycle jacket she asked, are you from the same team as yesterday? She recognized our logo and the blue box i was carrying. The day before they thought that my teammates baggage was suspicious because the electronics inside the boxes. However after checking it they recognized it as motorcycle parts. When I told here that it was just my suit in de box she looked relieved.

After the security check I decided to spend my last dollars on two tasty (blue moon Belgium white) beers in the tax-free area lounge bar. At midnight the plane took off. A dish of mashed potatoes and beef stew was served, it tasted not bad at all. With the meal finished I slept till the touchdown at Kiev airport.

After three hours of waiting I was on the plane to Paris. I couldn't resist to order a sandwich from the good looking cabin crew. The sandwich containing chicken, tomatoes, salad and dressing was really delicious. After this meal I fell asleep. After a soft landing in Paris it was time for the baggage check and border control, which went smoothly.

On the airport Maarten en Roan were waiting to pick me up and bring me to the hotel. It was already midnight and we wanted to drink beer. Together with Roan we decided to drink a beer at the nearest bar; the hotel next door. While we were enjoying our beers we made plans for our free time tomorrow.
