A little bit of insight.....

Here are some of the things I didn't know how to do....some I asked for help with from the flight attendant or my neighbor. Others I figured out myself.

To turn on or off your reading light, there is a button on the screen Infront of you that has a bulb display

You don't need to board with your earpiece. It won't work. Headphones are given and you plug it in into your arm rest

To recline your seat, there's a button on your arm rest too.

There are lots of movies and music and all to choose from. I watched three movies, and listened to music when I wanted to sleep.

If you're tall, try to use seat guru to check seats that best suit you

Sock, ear plugs, little toothbrush and toothpaste are provided. You are not to take the blanket with you.

After serving, I think you can ask for extra food. My neighbor did

I'll write more as I remember

I'm sure you must have heard it several times on nairaland but I'll say mine too....

NIGERIA NO BE AM

I don't care what anybody *ucking says.

By 4:30 am, we landed at Hamad international airport , Doha and I was wowed! Asides the beauty, everything was so organized and neat. None of our airports come even an inch close.

I had a 16 hour layover but wasn't given a room. Guess that is reserved for first class service or you pay some extra bucks.

Tried paying for a room but Orynx said they were fully booked. After I don waka tire reach there (The airport is biiig)

I just went to one of the rest rooms and brushed and cleaned up

Congratulations bro. I wish you success. Please how much is the estimate for the whole Visa process. Also, how long did it take you to get the TEFL certificate and the Medical examination report, what tests were conducted on you.. Lastly, as you're in Vietnam now, you'll first go for the CELTA certification first before you you begin to work as a teacher right?

Oh okay thanks for the response the TEFL thing, how much did it cost to get it?

And as for that CELTA, does it mean one can get an English teaching job in Vietnam without having the CELTA certification?

Back to the journey.....

After spending just 4 hours waiting, I was tired. I went to make enquiries about booking a hotel at least so I can sleep. They said they were fully booked. See bah, that airport is big and I mean big! I was kukuma tired of walking and not interested in checking back so I just choose one seat and used me hand luggage as pillow and slept.

One nice black guy woke me up some minutes later and directed me to the quiet area. Kai! They say it's never too late shey, so I got some sleep, woke up and went to get something to chew on.

For future purposes, if you're looking for such quiet areas, on the first floor, there's one towards the B wing, where you have lots of computers for use. See picture of the one I choose.

After the snacks, I did some exploring and found a food court. Was going to do shawarma o just to know the difference between the one in Naija and Doha, next thing I'm ordering for something else I couldn't finish

I won't lie, e pain me. I couldn't finish it and then we were served on the flight again which I couldn't finish.

After this, I boarded the second flight and we arrived Vietnam by 6am. Vietnam fine sha. Kai...
