Yesterday was a day I will never forget...... I got to the airport the check-in was still closed, although already a long queue has built up. Suddenly, the woman behind me walked to the counter and asked the lady how long it will take until the will start with the check-in. Once she was back she said something in Spanish to me and I answered it with "What did you say?" (because I don't speak Spanish). Somehow she recognized that I am from Austria and started talking to me in German from there on. After some time also her daughter came and her mother introduced us to each other..... At that moment I wasn't thinking about talking to her anytime again after we have checked in......BUT....since the girl was flying to the same destination as I was (Madrid) we ended up spending the whole pre-flight phase together talking about random stuff. At first I was kinda unsure because I normally don't talk to strangers but while talking with her the time to the boarding passed faster than expected. But now the really surprising thing for me was that her mother apparently wrote her that she should bring me later on to the railway station and should help me find my train. Additionally, the girl invited me on her own to spend the 4 hour layover between arrival in Madrid and departure of the connection train to Caceres with her at her place...... And all this actually without knowing me more than 3 hours...... That is just crazy and awesome at the same time...... 😯 Never have experienced anything like this before 🤔 I was really positively overwhelmed by her hospitality and certainly enjoyed spending time with her :) + I am quite sure, it wouldn't have been that nice if I had spent my layover at the railway station. Thanks Sofia for everything you did for me. It was really nice meeting you 🙃 #thankssofia #Iwouldtagyoubutidontknowyourinstagramn
After the 4 hours, which btw went by super fast, she also helped me to find the railway station + the train. Sadly, the goodbye was kinda rushed, since I had to catch my train, but I hope we will see each other again.
