Airports and Airplanes

Alicante the final day

Always shitty the last day, especially if you are flying and the weather is not cooperating (although better than at home)

So what do you do?!?

Drink and eat! Jamon de iberico!

Tapas and cocktails! Because the museum I wanted to visit was closed… Too bad. Just enjoy the Costa Blanca to the fullest.

And I did. I found the best spot in Alicante;

but the Garda civil kicked me off :(

But I did get a really nice shot which is rather unique (since it’s out of bounds)

Now to grab my stuff I left at the hotel and onto the airport! Back to Holland… :(

All good things come to an end. And this is the end of my awesome trip to Alicante.

And it all ended with a triple chocolate cake… 🍰

And now it’s like 19:30 and I’m Waaaaaaaaaay tooo early at the Aeropuerto… F*ck me a 2-hour wait. Lucklily i brought my laptop and there is ample WiFi avaiable… So Netflix is possible 😀

Aah…. It was all worth it!

Till the next adventure. Jay over and out.

Part 1: a Time standard

Let’s agree on Time

Time is what?

Google time…

 

I’ve recently learned about GMT, in Greenwich, London, England, UK, Earth.

GMT is a timezone.

 

 

 

Time Quotes:

“A friend is what the heart needs all the time.” Henry Van Dyke

“Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” Bil Keane

“The problem with time, I’ve learned, whether it’s those first two weeks I got to spend with you, or the final two months I got to spend with him, eventually time always runs out. I have no idea where you are out there in the world, John. But I understand that I lost the right to know these things long ago. No matter how many years go by, I know one thing to be as true as ever was – I’ll see you soon then… —Savannah

Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

And the list goes on…

But… no fear… UTC is here!

Universal Time
That’s our Earth‘s Time from this point onward for me…

UTC. > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CoordinatedUniversalTime

Q1: Why is the abbrevation UTC but “Coordinated Universal Time”?

A1: Because of the French

So… until we find any other sentient race then us Humans (Homo sapiens)… This is our Universal standard, IMHO. Then we can either welcome them like Will Smith, or make peace like James Cameron

That’s including our Moon and Mars! (Is local Moon/Mars time already decided?)

 

SyS. Over and Out.
