重遊德國 Fly Back to Germany

三年前的今天,我騎上單車,花了七個月的時間從柏林騎回香港。今天我坐上Swissair 的Business Class飛回德國,兩種旅遊方式有著强烈的對比。今次應德國旅遊局的邀請,以Blogger身份重回德國兩週,從Freiburg開始一直玩到Dresden。這次亦是我離開德國三年來第一次回去,可惜沒時間回到讀書的Bremen和工作的Berlin,未能跟老友們一聚。

升級坐Business Class是Swissair在Check-in時的窩心安排,可能他們知道我第一天在Freiburg的行程特別緊湊,從早上六時一直到晚上八時,好讓我在飛機上躺著睡,免舟車勞動之苦。最重要還是Business Class的用餐安排,前菜、主菜、芝士、水果和甜品,捧著肚子入睡,人生一大快事。

半夜醒來,看到營幕的飛行報告,飛機正在哈薩克的上空,剛經過Karaganda。腦海立刻閃過當天在Karaganda,因為找不到Couchsurfing Host而意外參加了一個地道派對的回憶。不過飛機正以時速800km/h前進,一下了又到了俄羅斯的Chelyabinsk。那天,我又在…ZZZ…ZZZ

Exactly three years ago, I jumped on a bicycle in Berlin and pedaled 7 months riding back to Hong Kong. Today, I got on Swiss Air’s business class and flew back to Germany. It was a big contrast. This time I was invited by the German National Tourist Office, to visit Germany for two weeks as a blogger. The trip will start from Freiburg and go all the way to Dresden. This is my first visit after leaving for three years. Unfortunately, there will be no free time to visit my University City, Bremen, and the city that I worked, Berlin. It is a pity that I can’t catch up with friends.

Upgrading to business class was really a big surprise from Swissair during the check-in. They must have known that my first day’s schedule in Freiburg was really full and tight; starting from 6am until 8pm. Therefore, they got me a bed on the flight to make sure I could rest well. Of course, the meal service in business class was awesome; three course meal that ended with Swiss chocolate. I was absolutely full when I went to sleep.

I woke up around midnight, looking at the flight information screen. The flight was above Kazakhstan, we had just passed Karaganda. The memories came back to me right away. I remembered I couldn’t find my couchsurfing host when I arrived there and went into a local house party. The flight was heading to Chelyabinsk with 800km/h speed now, and I remember that day…ZZZ…ZZZ…
