ROMANTIC RHINE TRIP

April 29 May 10, 2009

Our Delta flight left Denver at 9:00 am for Atlanta, where we arrived at about 2;00 pm and then left for Munich at 4:20 pm.  That meant being up at 5:00 am to get to the airport by 7:00 am.  We had no troubles.  But sleeping on the plan was not to be as, by the time they served dinner and when they woke us up for breakfast, there was little time to sleep.  We did get two meals - more than we hoped for.  We arrived in Munich with about 2 hours of sleep at 11:00 pm Denver time - still Teri's Birthday!

Our Delta flight left Amsterdam at 10:00 so we had to have our luggage out at 6:30 am.  We tried to sleep on the plane, but they kept talking on the speaker and passing out stuff and giving us meals, etc.  A short night and very long day.  We got into Atlanta at 2:00 with a 4:00 flight to Denver.  We had a delay because of mechanical problems of about 1 hour.  We arrived in Denver at 6:00 pm (2:00 am the next morning Amsterdam time).  We got home, ate soup, and went to bed.
