I’ve just arrived in Zurich, in heavy snow. I never landed in such snowy conditions so it was quite interesting. As soon as the engines stopped everything went as in a Swiss watch – within ten minutes I was in the terminal building and then, having passed passport control, I have found to my amazement that my suitcase was already waiting for me on the stopped conveyer belt in the luggage claim area.

Having a one hour wait for my colleagues before me I headed to Starbucks where I relaxed enjoying Chai Latte tea and doing my e-mail. I soon found out that apart from the paid hotspot there is free access to the airpot web service where I could track the flights I waited for. This proved to be quite handy as my colleagues’ planes are late.
