I joined a 10 days tour package to visit Rose Festival (once in a year event) in Bulgaria and Romania.
I departed Narita Airport for Sofia, Bulgaria by Austria Air.
This is my first time traveling by Austria Air.
Austria Air started operation again after a year and 8 months absence.
Austria Air stopped the operation between Vienna and Japan because the number of Japanese tourist dropped due to active terrorist attracts in Europe then.
I quickly walked through immigration because I had shopping to do.
I usually get my supply of cosmetics at Narita Airport.
It could be cheaper to buy cosmetics in overseas duty free shops but the quality of cosmetics are better in Japan because the stores always get new supplies due to the large number of shoppers to visit the shop.
I learned this through my experiences.
I bought cream eye shadows at the overseas duty free shop but when I open it, one of them was cracked and others are firm though it’s Chanel cream eye shadows, these must be already dried.
The shop is too far to complain or ask for replacement…
This time, I get mascaras (Chanel one’s in gray. I look forward to wearing it) and nails.
I didn’t have much time to rest at the lounge, but it’s okay.
Austria Air shares the lounge with ANA so I’m already familiar with their food and facilities. hahaha
Then time to board!
The facilities are nice: thick blanket, nice headset, beverages, food, desserts, even COFFEE!
These are in a bag of amenities.
I had lamb as my main dish for dinner.
I also enjoyed Austria dessert wine (a blend of Chardonnay and Welschriesling) with cakes.!
I was amazed by the coffee; there are so many varieties.
I tried Maria Theresia: an exclusive Wiener Coffee which is black coffee with delicious orange liqueur!
I enjoyed watching movies with a nice headset and sleep on a comfortable seat.
Look what I found at the laboratory.
I found stain remover for clothing; how thoughtful they are!
I kept them in case I need them.
I had roasted chicken breast broccoli potato pepper gratin for breakfast.
I love having my breakfast with a glass of champagne. hahaha
I enjoyed my flight and safely arrived Vienna, Austria.
I still had to catch a connecting flight for Sofia, Bulgaria.
I haven’t visited Vienna yet so I will make sure to return here.
It is international flight, but it took few hours to reach Sofia, Bulgaria.
I had snacks on the flight; we can choose from either sweet and salty.
By the time we reach Sofia, it was already dark; of course, we landed at 11 pm.
We finally reach to our hotel: Hilton Sofia.
I soaked my body into a tub to relax.
It was a long day due to long journey and time zone. Zzzzzzz
