Boarding the flight and gosh is it cold!
The snow has really put a freeze on travel here in Western Europe. Our aircraft was almost 45 minutes late coming in from Frankfurt, making our departure over and hour late with the delay and de-icing.
Of course, I prefer de-icing. The thought of the wings freezing, losing their ability to generate lift and us falling precipitously out of the sky to our doom is not how I imagined I would experience this visit to Europe.
Mandel Krackers - tasty!
Once airborne, things went smoothly for the relatively short flight to Frankfurt. A little girl and her father sat next to me and she reminded me of my little niece and how I would like to someday take her along with me on trips just like this.
Without the freezing of the wings, of course.
