I was pretty dead in KL airport, so I wondered around the shops with Noni as I wanted to buy some duty free stuff. I had too much trouble concentrating and deciding what to buy so I just bought some booze and said my goodbyes to Noni and waited at the gate. The airplane wasn't full, and I didn't have anyone sitting next to me and I had a seat next to a window, so after they served second breakfast (they were serving the same options for breakfast as the first plane so it was second breakfast, I am not intentionally making a lord of the rings reference) I had a really nice heavy sleep for like 2-3 hours. So much so, when I woke up, I noticed that someone had taken the seat next to me (the arm rest had been put down and the blanket unwrapped) and the reason being that one of the middle rows had been taken up because one of the passengers apparently was ill and needed to lie down (she had 3 air hosts around her and some passanger who appeared to be in the medical profession). I didn't mind much as I had a good nap and the man didn't seem to mind when I needed to get up to visit the ladies.

I watched something on the TV, listened to something on the music thing and watched something on my laptop (I was pretty out of it) before they served some salad rolls. I ate one of them but couldn't eat the other. On our decent into Melbourne, I talked a bit to the man next to me who was visiting Melbourne for a conference and was going to go see his sister in law. They didn't hold us for the sick person so she must have recovered enough and it was pretty easy from then on - passport checkin line wasn't too long, baggage took a while but not too bad and I declared my leather shoes but they didn't want to have a look and I was free! Adam nicely came to pick me up and it was a short trip home. Yay, the house was still there! Yay for home!

Of my trip, I think I enjoyed Berlin the most - the wide streets, tree life around and just the general feel of the place. I however, thoroughly enjoyed my day in the cinque terra and would recommend anyone to check that out if they were in northern italy and liked bush or seaside walking. I thought that I would enjoy Rome more than I did and I think that it was just because there was so many tourists and they were just pretty rude and also the busyness of the streets. Amsterdam was also full of tourists but they were less annoying, and the city was more open with the canals which made it more enjoyable to walk around in. So that's it, I'm back in Melbourne now and could go back and edit this (I didn't read back any of the entries so I bet they are full of things that don't make sense and bits that I've missed out) but I wont, that would take time and now is the time for gaming.
