Wake of the Vikings: Amsterdam to Oslo

Amsterdam isn’t the same airport I transited multiple times every year while we lived in Qatar and Kuwait. I had a routine, arrive, go to the club, shower, get on next flight. Keeping it simple, keeping it real.

Arriving in Amsterdam now, you have to go through passport control, even though you are just transiting! Oh aarrgh!  But, as AdventureMan said, at least it’s not Paris/Charles de Gaulle, where chaos reigns and it is no-where near charming, it is get-me-out-of-here awful.

We board our flight for Oslo and almost immediately are served a snack. Oh, my Scandinavian blood sings for joy, it is smoked salmon, and it is packaged beautifully!

The packets on the top layer are dill sauce and mustard. Look at the beautiful box 🙂

 

The smoked salmon excited my anticipation of Oslo and Bergen:

 

The bread was also packaged – and warm!

 

 

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. I love artistic packaging. There were utensils for eating packed into the lid.

The flight was easy, and less than full;  arrival was smooth. It was a lovely introduction.
