I am a Norwegian living in Denmark. With parents living far apart, I've been in and out of airplanes since I was four.

I am always planning my next trip somewhere in the world. So far, I've visted:
Denmark, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Svalbard, Sweden, Thailand and Turkey (not counting countries passed through).

I like history, photography, scuba diving and staying active on my travels, so ideally the trips are a combination of those things.

Countries visited: Norway, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, England, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Greece, Serbia, Egypt and Thailand

comment Why did the stewardess make me wait before disembarking?
Just asked my mother, who works at said airport (though not as cabin crew). She has never heard of this practice either, so it remains a mystery.

It didn't seem no one was anything other than monkey class - and it's a lowfare airline. The family was four or five people. Seemed nice, although a little loud. The stewardess let me see a list of all available seats, so I could choose. There were about 10 available seats in a 737.

They did not move the jetway. Her attention was focused on the cabin, not the jetway, crew or me. Maybe she spotted a potential situation in the cabin, but it seemed very calm to me. As soon as there were people queued up down the aisle, we were let out. Seemed pointless.

The group didn't strike me as VIPs. It was a family, so that also rules out crew - unless they changed child labour laws recently. The air bridge seemed clear, and I did not spot any ground crew or crew exiting.

I don't suspect a connection with me picking an empty seat. Those who disembarked immediately before me was indeed a group. I don't get the connection to rabbits, but I didn't spot any, and the airport seemed empty. Time was 1am, and it's not exactly a hub.

comment Name on RyanAir ticket abbreviated in passport
I contacted them, and they said he would not need to change it for a minor administration fee of €10. He will need to present his birth certificate and have it sorted before going to the airport. How he will present the birth certificate before going to the airport, I do not know.

comment Name on RyanAir ticket abbreviated in passport
The passenger has two family names – Doe Smith. I have used only "Doe" as the last name on the ticket, but it happens to be abbreviated in the passport. The "D." may even be in a different field e.g. "Given names: Oliver D." or as a middle initial – I am unsure how exactly it is written, only that it is not written in full.

comment dual citizen and indefinite leave to remain
Can you not just use your British passport? Also, if your Nigerian passport is more than 15 years old, is it even valid?

comment Why can two different airlines have different travel durations for the same itinerary?
EDIT: Delta also considers CDG a hub, although with much fewer routes than Air France. They land at the same terminal. Delta considers BOS their hub also, and depart from a different gate than Air France. Thus, gate location is likely not the answer in this example.

comment Why can two different airlines have different travel durations for the same itinerary?
I assume it may be due to gate location. Since CDG is the main hub of Air France, they likely have the "best" gates, which don't require a lot of taxxing. Or perhaps they have their own terminal, which means they don't have to cue up in the more crowded runways (speculation).

Hmm, yes, and they mention polio instead. I think you should simply ask your doctor.

comment Going to Japan for 2 weeks, vaccinations
I think this depends on where you are from. Here in Denmark, we have a site for this specific purpose. For Japan, there are several comon diseases to be vaccinated against, but people here are usually already vaccinated in school or from previous trips. Other countries probably have similar sites.

comment Identify waterside building / skyline
Two of my friends looked at apartments there when it opened. They looked really nice and at a reasonable price – but they had weird angled walls and corners, plus the immediate location is not fantastic (right now). In fact, the entire harbour and waterfront area in Aarhus is getting a revamp at the moment, with many new projects. Here is the crown jewel, which is being finished right now: urbanmediaspace.dk/en
