Thai Airways flight TG 518

Plane

Wednesday 5th of December 2018 and my alarm went off at 3 thirty. Tea and oatmeal in my room before going to take a taxi to the Mangrove Hide at the Ras al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. They open at 7 thirty and I left Radisson Blu Dubai Waterfront just after 7.

I discovered that I was alone when I arrived to the Mangrove Hide. Very good and I took a seat starting to look for birds. This is the fourth or fifth time in the hide for me and I had never seen so few birds here before. Well, actually, there were no birds at all.

I spent a few hours before I gave up and I booked an UBER back Radisson Blu Dubai Waterfront where I will spend the day in my room. Radisson Blu have the late check-out service so I will check-out at 5 thirty. I have booked a hotel car to leave for the airport around 5 thirty.

The day was spent in my room and I was gone leaving Radisson Blu Dubai Waterfront behind a few minutes after having checked out from the hotel. I was enjoying the ride in a comfy van looking at the Dubai skyline disappearing behind me.

I had expected them to open the check-in 3 hours before departure but they didn´t open until 2 hours before departure. Train to the departure terminal and I found my way to Lufthansa’s Senator Lounge where I hope to find food as I was hungry.

Bread, if you serve bread you better make sure it is fresh. And the bread in the Senator Lounge Yet another Smiley on www.aladdin.stwas not fresh, it was like eating bread from yesterday.

But there was some pasta that was good, and they had Diet Pepsi so I was full by the time it was time to leave for the gate. I stopped to by a NOKIA 7 phone on the way to the gate. My LG, I can only use it for 2 hours or so before I have to charge the battery.

And thanks to my birding guide from UAE Birding I have joined ebird. He showed me how he had checklists and maps. Self-made maps just by turning on the GPS in the phone and the GPS have ebirdmade a birding map for you. So I need a new phone so I can run it during my birding trips.

Just wish I had knew about this when I was in Djibouti and Oman. Well, future birding trips and I will use this feature, already looking forward to it.

Of course, flying Thai Airway and boarding is late. 5 or 6 hours to Bangkok and I went to sleep as soon as we were in the air. I was full after the visit to the lounge so I skipped the dinner.

Waking up just before Suvarnabhumi International and I had time for two cups of tea before we landed. It had been a good flight, except for the incident with my e-cig. Sleeping and I lost it under the seat and I had the Steward to help me finding it. But we failed to find it.

Stop to buy milk and a few bottles of MAX before going to the AOT limousine for my taxi back home. Back home too late for any boxing so I will go to Chaiyasit Muay Thai Gym to train with Red Devil, ปีศาจแดง ก.กุมานนท์ tomorrow.

Joining Rita Mærsk on the 11th or 12th of December in Sriracha so I don´t have many days at home. So I need to be at Chaiyasit Muay Thai Gym every day until it is time to join Rita Mærsk.

To join Rita in Sriracha on the 12th so I booked a yoga class. I will try a few times and if I like it I will start in a yoga group. I went to buy some yoga rolls but I had to cancel my yoga class as they wanted me to join Rita on the 11th of December.

Time for the boxing in the morning, but as the yoga instructor wasn´t available until 2 o´clock in the afternoon I had to cancel and they will come to pick me up at 3 o´clock in the afternoon on the 11th. And as I cancelled the yoga they could come to pick me up earlier and we left Bangkok around 2 and I expect to be on board in time for dinner.

Yoga class or not, it will be nice to get out on the 7 seas again to make some money, well needed after a few very expensive days in the Middle East looking for birds.
