Hi everybody !

I arrive today 4h before my flight ! Not because I'm terribly impatient to take the plane but because of my school who did one and only transfert to the airport. So I have left the school early this morning (at 8:00) and have waiting during a long time in an empty school with some other students.
At the time I just need to drop off my bag but I decide to eat before, to spend my last pieces. A panini, an ice tea and a cookie will be enough. Yummi yummi ! :)

Three hours before the flight, I decide to drop off my bag in the AF/KLM counters and print my boarding pass.

A school staff is following me and asks me why I'm taking a lot of pictures. I explain the Flight Report concept and he looks interested.
Few minutes later, I leave my suitcase and as last year, my flight doesn't get a gate yet.

I leave the landside to the airside and discover the new electronic passeport control. So no stamp today ! :(

There is a lot of people at the security and I have to wait 30 minutes !!
