The countdown is over- the family trip to Europe is finally here! We are going with a group from the Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe made up of students, alumni, friends, faculty (one of us) and family (the rest of us)- and are staying at the European Nazarene College as our ‘homebase’ in Busingen, Germany. Busingen is special because it is a German city that is entirely surrounded by Switzerland.
Kansas City to Atlanta was fine, but as expected the flight over the Atlantic was horribly long and uncomfortable- and I got next to no sleep. Too bad the in-flight movies weren’t interesting.
Good thing the view was amazing!
Arriving in Zurich, Switzerland
One of my favorite moments upon arriving at the Zurich, Switzerland airport was being transported in the metro-like system from our gate to the baggage area. They played a sterotypical Swiss Alps yodel that had you thinking of Ricola and then showed a bunch of pictures on the wall that as you sped by blurred together and showed a little Swiss girl in pig tails waiving. It was a funny but nice welcome especially as we were loopy from the lack of sleep. Ready for a great vacation!!
