Christmas in October - Trophies are at the airport
Now to figure my way through the wrapping paper (documentation).
Got the Air Waybill by email earlier today. Had to wait to deal with it as I was out chasing Mule Deer with the bow. (Wind was not in my favour today)
Checked the carrier and the flight when I got home. Surprise, British Airways! What?? Arriving tonight!! What??
Cargo shipping is fascinating:
Windhoek, Munich (short holiday in Germany), Munich to London Heathrow, then on to the new Home.
Already got the first surprise when I called the Air Cargo Handler. There will be a fee on top of the pre paid shipping costs. ( I was trained in Africa, expect the unexpected)
Evidently, there is a charge for moving the crate from the plane to the cargo hanger that is not included in paying for shipment. Who would have thought that an airport or air carrier would charge more fees.
The staff member at the CBSA was already setting me up for the fun I'll have at the visit to their office. Can't wait.
I asked, calling the airport office: " Where is your office located?" Agent: "At the airport, arrivals level." :confused:
This airport is not Windhoek.
So, with this set of directions I'll start the search and go for a long walk inside the airport.
I set off shortly to try and unwrap the paper from my first gift from Africa.
Then taking the crate home to get the real wrapping off.!:kt:
Pictures will follow. OMG, I have not even finished the stories yet.
