Lessons from the Flight to Germany (We’re Here!)

We’ve arrived! Judy Pike and I are in Room 220 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Berlin! I am PSYCHED to be here.

Of course, I’m quickly typing up some notes I took on the plane… I want to get out and see the city!

Here are some Lessons we Learned on the flight to Germany:

1) German planes have no rows #13 or #17, because both numbers are considered bad luck.
2) Vocabulary:
Trinkwasser – Drinking Water
Besezt – Occupied
Toiletten – Bathrooms
Flügzeit – Flight Time
Unermesslichen – Immeasurable

Things of Note:

1) Somehow, though we boarded our flight at 4:30 PM on Wednesday in Boston, slept only two (at most) of the six hours on the first leg of our journey.
2) Because the bridge to our gate was closed, Zamirniks wandered like lost sheep through the airport in Frankfurt while trying to find our connecting flight. We discovered we had to leave customs and go back through security, where we were waved, wanded, prodded, and asked to chug ALL the water in our water bottles before being let back in to board our next flight. Try chugging water when fatigued. ‘Nuf said.
3) Judy is planning to make an entry into her blog from 30,000 square feet (so Devin advised her to sleep more).
4) You can’t be incognito if you say “I think we’re incognito” in an American accent on a flight from Frankfurt to Berlin.

We are happy to be here!

    I’m enjoying these posts. But I want to know how “immeasurable” came up during the flight. An announcement from the pilot, maybe? “Our cruising speed/ altitude is immeasurable.”?

    “immeasurable” came up because we were rehearsing repertoire on the plane… haha
