Hello again. This is the final report of my trip in Colombia. Finally, after some hours in Ataturk airport it was time to take my final flight to Barcelona. This will be the last of three flights after my other flights TK800 from Bogota to Panama and from Panama to Istanbul.

Boarding was made by bus and so we made a short hop to our airplane, TC-LOF today, with new cabin again. This plane was used by my mum two days before me to make her trip back home from Uzbekistan. Casualities of the world.

After boarding was completed safety video was played while we made the pushback.

Taxi was very short because the gate was very close to the runway. We were lucky because normally Istanbul, as you know, is a very cramped airport and sometimes it can take really long time to take off.

Cabin crew take your seats please

Here we go, rotate!

Taking off from Istanbul is very nice because you have the city suburbs very close to the airport and views are really nice!

Anybody knows what's that?

Shortly seat belts were turned off and we reached cruise altitude, today 39.000 feet.

Then lunch service commenced. Today we had two choices. Pasta or Chicken. Obviously I choosed the first one. We also had some appetizer which I don't know what it was and a chocolate mousse for dessert.

And after all, some coffee

By the time we were flying over the south of Italy, the city of Naples was possible to see from the window. Also some fires in the area.

Soon we were over Cerdenya, some nice clouds were resting here.

I woke up and took a short walk on the cabin. I went to the toilet which was quite polite and also I requested water to the crew. I also requested turkish loukoums but they told me they stopped serving them for a while. So I came back to my seat again after streching my legs.

And a few minutes after descent started.
Brake!

Today we'll be landing on Runway 7L, coming from the south. Normally landings are made on RWY25R. Wind probably, even it was everything smooth.

This is Sitges, a small town next to Barcelona

And the coastline of Garraf. Nice beaches down here. I missed them

About two minutes before landing I started recibing all messages on the phone so I was talking with my family before touchdown

On final

After that I went to the passport control and after that I picked up my bag. It didn't took so much time today, and after that I went off the terminal where my mum was waiting for me. We took the L9 back home and my I realized my trip had ended.

Conclusion

As always, Turkish Airlines offers a great service on board. Cabin crew wasn't very friendly here and I think TK should work hard here. Oh, if someone knows what are these loukoums made of, please tell me, I will be very happy to know that :D
