The Europe Trip - Part II

Arrived safe. Did 6 countries in 1 day... Very tired. More news tomorrow!!

Well, it's tomorrow now, still very tired, but since I promised more news, here is some more news...

On Thursday we met with my co-worker Jeff for lunch in Beachwood before we left for the airport. Our flight would leave around 3pm so plenty of time. We got to the airport in time and without any delay we made it to our flight. One amazing thing did happen. The baggage allowance is 50lbs per bag and without a scale or even really thinking about it while packing our bags we had 48 and 49lbs for both are bags... Amazing!

The flight to Newark was pretty non-eventful, but after two holding patterns due to heavy traffic (and a prelude of the winter storm on Friday) we landed in plenty of time to make our connecting flight to Cologne, Germany.

Another rather uneventful flight, but since the window seat was empty we had the whole row to ourselves which greatly helped in finding a position to catch some sleep.

We arrived about 40mins early and my Dad was there to pick us up and we were ready for our European Adventure!!
