I had a great 4 months in Taipei, climbing some mountains which didn't look bad climbing up but when the rock is facing you it's ok until you turn around.
Image
Image
I put my passport in the washing machine (didn't think about the shorts lower pockets, i had put it in there when i was preoccupied coming through the airport last time)

I went to Songshan airport and asked immigration if it would be ok and they were fine.

I moved to an apartment nearer the MRT so that i moving from the previous apartment, i would take two suitcases one by one on the MRT and then as i am now nearer the airport MRT it would be easier to walk with them.

31KG at airport check-in, the check in staff were very friendly and asked if i wanted to go on an earlier flight because of a cancelled flight later on which wasn't mine.
So getting there at 1:50pm for a 7:30pm flight worked in my favour as i can spend more hours live streaming in Hong Kong.

They also waived my overweight bags.
Image
I'd left my laptop at check-in so i quickly ducked under the ropes and got my boarding card scanned to exit and go back to check-in, i got back up to security where the check-in desk girl, smiling greeted me as she was searching for me with the laptop.
I got through immigration in about 8 minutes (including the queue)
Go to the gate as they were boarding.

No window seat but i still got the take off filmed. The girl next to me was friendly and it's rare but we talked almost the whole flight about things.

The aircraft was an a330 and the in-flight meal was similar to the pastry i had last year and better.

We actually take off on time.

I arrive and go through the transfer security where there was nobody in line up by gate 60 areas and straight up to departures after that for a walk around and to set up my cameras for my live events.

I go get a chocolate milkshake with the little money that i have left and then find the hidden free relaxation corner
Image
After a few hours in there it was time to go to the gate. I used to like sitting by the gate earlier but i don't like the stress of boarding anymore.
Again all the staff were friendly, Cathay does a good job in their hiring i think.

The food was good, even got a small chocolate and ice cream.
Cabin crew were all friendly and attentive which i liked very much
Image
I had a nice real 3-4 hours of sleep and some more general napping.

And thus i was back, thank you A350
