Oslo airport mid 2016, after the photo was taken we were called for boarding. Everyone assumed that someone else would have woken me up. Woke up to an empty waiting area and made the flight by 2 minutes.

Take time to see the places while you are on tour. It’s really easy to stay on the bus / hotel and not take a place in. Go for a walk. See the sights. Try a local beer or weird food. Make the most of it! It’s the best job in the world!
