Little Bretzel travels to Lithuania
Little Bretzels trip to Lithuania
First stop: Eindhoven Airport
So far traveled: 56 KM
Today early in the morning, at 4:45 local time Breda (The Netherlands, the little Bretzel (me Sven 😀 ) and his girlfriend Ramune (Nickname Muni which I will refer to during this blog) got woken up through the first of three alarms which where necessary to get us out of the bed. It was time to get ready for our ten day trip to Lithuania, one of the Baltic states in the north-east of europe, where my beautiful girlfriend was born .
Since no buses were available this morning at 5:45, we started walking to the train station in Breda and took the first train to Eindhoven. 40 uneventful minutes later we arrived in Eindhoven and took a direct shuttle bus to the airport. Luckily for us, everything is reachable with in the network of the OV chipkaart system here in the Netherlands and we did not have to pay additional fee for the direct bus connection!
Our Wizz Air flight W6 8026 leaves at 9:20 local time Eindhoven and we arrived two hours early at the airport. For me it was important to have some redundancy with the train bus connection and for the check-in. The check-in was rather simple, a self check-in machine which we know out of Paris CDG and Amsterdam Schiphol is used for all flights from Wizz Air. All counters were empty luckily at the check in was quickly done. Then we passed directly the security control and I found now the time to write the first out of hopefully many blog entries for this trip. Eindhoven Airport is a well-developed small European Airport. You have a rather large duty-free shop and a small bar and bistro. Nevertheless, you see clearly that this airport is developed for low-cost airlines like Wizz Air, Ryanair and Transavia.
Our Aircraft is already in the approach towards Eindhoven Airport and comes directly from Vilnius since it is based in Vilnius. It is going to be a 2,5 years old Airbus A320 with Sharklets and the registration HA-LWX.
Finally, I also have some pictures from Eindhoven Airport:
I will continue later with the blog when we arrived in Vilnius and arrived in our hotel where we will stay for one night!
See you later,
