This is my very first adventure overseas! I was very excited to have the opportunity to come here, explore, and partake of Germany's delicious quinine (if you've read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, you know how important a good meal is to us Hobbits).
Every good adventure has a beginning, so I might as well start there.
No matter whether you're flying or driving or hiking or hitchhiking, every single vacation or trip has one thing in common -- you have to get there first. This either means a super long drive from Point A to Point B, or a super duper long flight to your destination.
My adventure to Germany started out just as such. I had to catch a flight at 8:55am, which meant that I had to arrive at the airport at 6:55pm to check in and get through security. So, I had to get up at 5am!
Usually, the process of checking in is rather painless especially if you use Web Check-In (as I did).
For long drives or flights, I like to pass the time by listening to some good music and looking at the clouds!
Although my flight was almost 9 hours long (yikes!) and it was dark outside for about half of that time, I've never been very good at sleeping on airplanes. On this flight, I slept a grand total of 55 minutes, then spent the rest of the time watching The Monuments Men (one of many movies for rent in Business Class).
The next morning, we were served a light breakfast of fruit and granola with some hot tea or coffee.
Check back soon for the continuation of my Adventures in Germany!
