After working in the morning I drove to the Stockholm Arlanda airport. For those who think my day job is glamorous – I didn’t even get to see anything in Stockholm, not even from the car. Halfway to Stockholm from Finspång it started to snow. Luckily I had plenty of time to arrive to the airport. So I’m officially on my way to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil…. Of course the gate agent tells me my visa is for 3 months and issued in September (21 – which means it would still be valid if it was in fact only valid for 3 months, but it is valid for stays of 3 months and valid for 10 years). Once he found the 10 year validity I was officially checked in and am enjoying an adult beverage in the Lounge.
For now a short flight to Frankfurt before my lengthy one to Rio… And my adventure begins.
