On the 10th of January, we tried our luck getting seats for the Manila-Frankfurt flight. Unfortunately, we were not taken in. Even Lufthansa employees didn’t get seats that day. My husband is employed by SAS, naturally, lufthansa employees would be prioritized. The prognosis on the next days was the same. We decided to try Manila-Hongkong on Cathay Pacific and would take Hongkong-Frankfurt from there. There were 5 flights to Hongkong on the 11th but there were like a thousand airline employees on standby the whole day. We tried again on Lufthansa that night, the configuration on the flight changed — we got seats!!! We got lucky. Flying on ID tickets (airline employee tickets) are way cheaper than full price tickets but it can be a nightmare.

Me and my Aunt
Although I know that my family comes to visit us in Norway whenever they can, the hardest part is saying goodbye to them. I do not have any family (from the Philippines) in Norway and it is quite hard not to have anyone here. I am sure some of you can relate to this.
