We are back in the US!
On Sunday morning 4:30am we got up at the grandparents house and 1.5 hrs later we arrived at the airport in Munich. No problems during check-in and all flights appeared to be on time. After a quick breakfast (white sausages!) and good-byes we went through security and headed to the gate for our flight to Frankfurt. Soon after we arrived there, we heard about troubles at Frankfurt airport where freezing rain caused flights to be delayed/cancelled. Unfortunately our flight was affected and we needed to be re-booked on a flight that did not go through Frankfurt airport.
Selecting a new flight and getting the tickets took a few hours. Just before noon we took off on a United flight into Washington D.C. After another three hours lay-over we continued to Albuquerque and arrived at 9:15pm – 5 hours after our scheduled arrival.
For the last days in Germany we stayed mainly in Aichach (where the grandparents live), because the temperatures, icy conditions and snow made it difficult to go on longer trips.
On Saturday we had Oma’s (grandma in German) birthday party with 30+ guests (they are all looking at photos projected on a screen):
We had a really good time in Germany. Pia got to play Sorry or Monopoly every evening of the trip. She learned a lot about Germany and she saw things differently now that she’s a bit older.
Thanks everybody for making this happen and giving us such a warm welcome!
