Well, that was one smooth trip. We left Carbondale at about 6:30 AM and drove the I70 passes to Denver. Some icy roads kept it interesting, but we blasted over the snowy asphalt like we were high score in a video game, and parked with time to spare. The Lufthansa flight was 100% on schedule. We’d decided book a direct flight rather than a slightly cheaper on that transferred. Thus, after just one 10 hour seat torture session we’re in Munich and points beyond. More after the jet lag wears off, and we get in the rhythm of regular trip reports.
|Above, that’s the maggot wagon loading up our Lufthansa jet on the tarmac in Denver. We experimented with our food orders. Lisa got kosher, I got low sodium and Louie got Hindu. I highly recommend the low sodium meal if you’re trying to eat healthy. Dinner was baked salmon along with a veggie and fresh fruit selection. Kosher also seemed more healthy than the normal fair. World traveler Louie was less than impressed with eating Hindu, I guess that trip to India will have to wait. Signing off now for jetlag recovery.
P.S. Blogster going by the name of AT Fred was on the flight, headed for ski mountaineering in St. Anton area. Have a great one Fred, and good to meet you in person!
