Stranded in Oslo

Cyprus trip : Day 1

Yup, we got stranded in Oslo on our way to Cyprus  πŸ˜ͺ Since there were no direct flights from Stockholm, we booked this Norwegian flight as the next best route. All was hunky dory – we took off from Oslo at the scheduled time and were flying close to an hour. By then my head was lolling from side to side, but an announcement woke me up. We were facing “technical problems” and were turning back to Oslo. Nhhhooo! 😱 It took a while to land as the plane kept circling mid-air waiting for clearance. We passed immigration once more, got our passports stamped again and made our way to the Customer Service desk. Our token said 125 & they were still dealing with nr.88 😰 So we waited and meanwhile took stock of our  situation. We called the hotel & the car hire company in Larnaca to let them know we’re not going to make it. On a positive note, we received a text from Norwegian that our next departure is tomorrow 6:30am, yayie! They put us up at the Comfort Hotel for the night and treated us to a buffet dinner. Of course, we are going to have to make some claims & will be ending up paying some penalties on the car & hotel, but we hope to get a decent compensation from the airline according to E.U. Regulations. Best thing, we will be back on plan tomorrow enjoying the sun in Larnaca’s Nissi Beach πŸ˜† Like the saying goes, all’s well that ends well, and our vacation is just getting started!


Stay tuned for more about our road-trip through Cyprus!
