Flying from Amsterdam to Minneapolis
We passed through security with out a problem and even had the full body scans (wonder if they can tell how much meat we ate last night). We are ready to fly over the pond and get home. I don't know why they call it a pond, I guess to make you feel better about using your seat cushion as a flotation device. I feel better about using my cushion in a pond but the Atlantic ocean seems a bit "under" equipped!
Our flight is 8 hours long but we are following the sun so on the clock this flight will only take 2 hours. Sweet! We are trying to stay as positive as possible here! Once we hit Minneapolis we have to collect our luggage and go through US Customs. Once through customs we will re-check our bags for a DOMESTIC flight...that word sounds great!
Well, here we go. You are all sleeping right now but soon we will see you all!
