the "Stenny flies to Denmark for EARTH WARRIOR" story so far…

6 Dec 2013

So we left Amsterdam… flew to Kopenhagen… but the plane didn't land there because of a storm called Sven… instead of landing in Denmark or turning back to Amsterdam... the nice people of Norwegian airways dumped us in an overcrowded Stockholm airport (which is in fact not in Stockholm) Passengers from practically every international flight to oa: Italy, Iceland, London etc. were all dumped in Stockholm and left to figure it out by themselves… When we arrived there we were basically told to "fuck off and die" in a nice political way by the norwegian aircompany…

all hotels in the area were fully booked due to this dumping policy (as we found out by checking the net and phoning)… eventually we found a nice hotel , miles away… talked to some other refugees (from New Zealand, Japan and Vietnam) who had also found their way there… slept a few hours and started looking for a way out of sweden again…
The airport is in chaos… the info numbers dont work… the website is nonfunctional or down…but! through perseverence and the help of other stranded passengers we eventually we found out that:…There are no places on planes to Kopenhagen from here untill somewhere in the weekend.… maybe …
so… how about the trains? we HAVE to get to the studio in time!!

Car rental? … we tried… even the "last minute" car rentals need at least 24hours in advance to book… at least that is what the telecommunications drone told me (judging by the accent and the bad connection that was probably outsourced from India)

Stockholm trainstation is also a mess… no places on trains to Denmark at all today… phone down… online ticket service down… website down… eventually after many hours we managed to book a ticket for tomorrow morning early…
Now we are in (another) hotel , closer to the Stockholm trainstation , where we will pass the day in quiet meditation while the snow piles up outside (still snowing… it just started today and apparently it wont stop untill may 2014)
And hopefully we will be able to travel BACK to denmark then…
Thank you Norwegian airlines!… I really really hope to bump into one of your cheap-assed executives one day… preferably in a dark alley…

One positive note I can add to this tale of confusion is this:

Sweden is Beautifull and swedish people are really Friendly and very helpfull indeed!


Greenthingz and lost wingz!
