Far East Trip Day 8 – Taipei, Hong Kong 12th October 2019.

Day 8, and the start of the return journey. My first flight was with Cathay Pacific departing from TPE at 06:00. It was too early for the Hotel Shuttle, so they called a cab for me to get to T1. A330 B-HLH got me to HKG in 1 hour 30 minutes and on approach I had the camera ready and was snapping away during the taxy in. This was worthwhile as a lot of numbers were gleaned from these pictures. Transit procedures were very quick and I was wandering around the terminal in no time. I had about 1 hour and 15 minutes to log as much as possible before boarding my 10 hour flight on OH-LWO A350 Finnair to Helsinki Vantaa.




The service on the Finnair flight was pretty useless with no tea or coffee served in 10 hours and very little else. The crew were hardly seen and were messing about when on the one occasion they dragged a trolley through. I arrived at Helsinki and promptly went to buy a coffee and a snack. I only had 15 minutes before my final flight of the marathon journey home was boarding. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw B-207N B787-9 of Juneyao on the apron at Helsinki, the third time I had seen it on this trip!

OH-LTO A330 Finnair got me to the ‘Row in 3 hours on account of headwinds. For once Passport control was quite empty and I finally got home about 7pm, some 24 hours after I had woken up in Taipei to start the journey. A very tiring but very rewarding trip that I hope i will be able to replicate again. Each country visited I found to be very clean and safe, and the people to be very welcoming, and genuinely interested in where I was from etc.
