I was so nervous, I almost hyper-ventilated in the car while on the way to the airport. I wasn't even thinking of the children, I was thinking of the planes I had seen hit the Trade Towers on TV 12 years before, I was thinking of planes crashing into the ocean, I was thinking of leaving my babies to go to another continent, maybe even leaving them motherless ...
I get called a worry-wart, Debbie-Downer and other things. But I couldn't help it, I had no personal experience with flying. But I had seen PLENTY of disaster movies.
We hadn't even boarded yet and he was already tired!
Nervous travelers still take Selfies.
But I did. Oh wow it was a boring flight. I will never say "I'll sleep on the plane." EVER again. And why are movies so violent? We rarely get to watch TV (other than children's/Family) and when we do we watch documentaries and the occasional action flick. But I was trying to watch comedies, dramas, what have you, and they were ALL violent. Just for shock value. Man of Steel was really good though.
Landing in Germany was interesting, and a bit confusing.Their airport is not user-friendly. Another family from our agency who live nearby picked us up and treated us to food, fellowship and a tour of their village. It was a real treat! Even though we were seriously exhausted, we still felt refreshed as we boarded the plane for THE country. I don't remember much, other than when I hit the mattress, I SLEPT.
Just a little stroll in Germany.
