Oslo Airport, Gardermoen: Lost and Found

Hello. Hello. Hello🙂. I miss my blog. I miss writing. I miss you dear readers😀

With my recent sojourn: I lost some. I found more.

I lost some bucks in the supermarket in Milan when the change was short of several euros. I lost again when I missed another flight bound from Athens to Rome😦. A friend remarked, it’s becoming a bad-expensive habit😉. I wish not to go in details as it is loudly knocking on to wake me up. I lost my precious Canon DSLR camera lens EF 15-35mm at the Oslo Airport, Gardermoen.

I found more. Shall I not missed my flight I would have not met a smart, intelligent lady from Mozambique who bumped with me out of nowhere at the St Peter Basilica. I would have not met an intuitive mysterious lady from Poland whose depth of wisdom kept me thinking. I would have not met a bubbly Ukrainian mother and son, where son asked his mother to take photo of us together. We met again accidentally after that!

And just the news I got a couple of days back. I received a call from Oslo – Lost and Found Services informing me that they have found my camera lens! I sincerely applaud them for that. Imagine after more than a week. I already lose hope for the chance of finding that little precious stuff to be returned to me.

I lost some. I found more.

The moment I checked this photo it made me remember that this is exactly where I left my primary lens. After I passed through the security control gate, near to the glass wall adjacent to the gate for boarding via Norwegian air (just before the Duty Free shop).

Like in blogging. When I started it:

I lost some of my privacy. I lost some insecurities in writing. I dropped some negativity which is good I think.

I found more freedom to express myself in ways I have not thought possible before. I learned to and became more open to share about my private life. I’m still not used to it until now to be honest. But I’m slowly going there. I found more and keep meeting interesting people in this sphere of life who share the same passion as I am.

I don’t look at blogging as an end in itself but as a means to bridge me to another point of making somemore of my dreams come true.

I lost some. I found more.

Literally and figuratively, this Lost and Found stuff taught me more.

    • Good question🙂. I did not go into details of my post. I prepared an Incident Report and sent to them. After a couple of exchanged emails, when they found it they immediately call me. Norwegian’s honesty and helpfulness are impressive. And it speaks a lot to them as a nation.

  1. Hi Mafey,
    you have such a positive way of looking at things – I am sure that has something to do with the way your lens found its way back to you!


    • Hi Jerry,
      Thanks for dropping by! My lens has not returned to me yet😛. The Tracing Department at Changi Airport Terminal 3 helps me to facilitate the transport of my lens. I was told it will take sometime as Qatar Airways has no direct route to Norway nor Norwegian Air to Singapore. But I trust I will have it soon and in good condition.

      Happy weekend!😀

  2. Being built west of the existing terminal building, the new building will cover an area of 120,000m². The Terminal 2 will feature 36 new check-in counters, 12 new security checkpoints, food and drink outlets, duty-free and other shops, new centrally located toilets and a baby care room. An escalator will be connect the railway station to the terminal’s departure hall.
