VeeamON 2017 – Travel and first days in New Orleans

This post was originally published on this site

I knew that this trip would not be easy. It’s a long distance from Switzerland to New Orleans, and there were no direct flights. So i’ll have to change the plane at least once. But let’s start at the beginning of my journey to VeeamON 2017.

Saturday, 13th of May – Flight to New Orleans

Last Saturday the 13th of May it all started. I woke up early in the morning to get the rest of my stuff packed, and checked if there is anything missing. Fortunately there wasn’t. I got my clothes, my laptop, all the necessary cables and chargers and travel documents. I’m good to go. I went to the train station to catch the train to Zurich Airport. The nice thing is that directly under the airport there is a train station. So i went from the train directly to the baggage check-in and then straight through security to the gate.

The flight from Zurich to London, where my connection flight was scheduled, was not so nice. The flight itself was smooth and without turbulences. But there was a small child, crying the whole flight. I was hoping that this won’t happen on the plane to New
