First day in Paris

Posted by Mark

My Gulf Air flight arrived at 7AM to Paris. Kuwait to Bahrain was a pretty lame flight, the plane was really old and the seats extremely uncomfortable. Bahrain to Paris was a completely different story. This was my first experience with sleeper seats and I love them. Now they aren’t as comfortable as real beds but they are more than enough for long night flights where you need to get some sleep. The entertainment system is crap though, its nothing like Emirates on demand system, its just the regular old system still used on Kuwait Airways flights.

After landing and checking in to the hotel we decided to do a bit of sight seeing since our first meeting was at 5PM. The weather here is great, yes its raining but I miss rain. It feels like winter and its hard comprehend how its 52 degrees in Kuwait and just 15 degrees in Paris! I should pick up my work schedule tonight and hopefully I will have some free time to do some shopping and take in the sights. [YouTube]

Bahrain Airport Business Lounge

I am now in the Bahrain airport chilling out in the business lounge. There is free wifi here and since my connect flight to Paris leaves in nearly 2 hours, I have a good chunk of time to kill. I like the Bahrain airport, it feels very cozy.

I am heading out to the airport now. Any post after this is either going to be from my hotel room in Paris or via my phone. I am taking the Gulf Air flight, Kuwait > Bahrain > Paris. My flight leaves at around 10PM and I should get to Paris by 7AM. Over and out!
