My day of travel

Sunrise from the plane over Ireland
So I left good ol New Glasgow on friday morning at 7 am. Dad, Mom, Allison, Jessie, Brad and Marshal saw me of at the airport =). My flight left at 10:45 from Halifax and arrived in Montreal EARLY at 11:10 ish Montreal time. There I spent the most boring 8 hours. It took me about 1/2 hour to get of the plane and make sure that my bags didn't get of with me then another 15 min to figure out the tiny terminal. So i bought my extremly overpriced lunch and ate it, but I wasnt really hungry. The place was so empty I think we were the only flight there. Eventually flights started to come in and there for ppl started to come. So I listened to some tunes and people watched for a bit. Wasn't to bad after that, (I found ice cream what can i say) the stores started to open ect. So hoping that there would be something greater found beyond security I went through about 2 hours before my flight took of (security only took 3 seconds and both times I had to get the little hand held metal detector to check me out hahaha). Unfortunatly it was worse, so I found my gate and watched some DVD's that I had in my bag until boarding time. I said my good bye to Kanada and we took of. It was a trilingual flight which impressed me, and I had a free seat beside me which = more leg room = =) which was great! I slept basically the entire way but it was very disruptive which I dont really mind. We started flying and it was daylight, bout 20 min later the sun was setting and an hour later it was dark, completly, except for the plane flying parallel to us, which was really neat. Half way thrue it was dark and we were over greenland, then a couple of hours later the sun was rising and we were over Ireland. Shortest night ever. The frankfurt airport which I flew into was HUGE, honestly it was its own city, I got so kerfufelled because it was all british english on the signs and I was looking for customs when really I needed to find passport check but after an hour I found it and I was proud of myself, I even found the luggage carousel myself, which is alot harder then it sounds as there were two different areas for them and over 20 belts.. I found the right belt.. but i also found my luggage on the other side of the airport wiierrrddd... Hahah any ways it all worked out then i found a way to get out, which once again was alot harder then it sounds, and found my familly and all that fun stuff. Drove home and by that time it was 12 am Bonn time on saturday. So now here I am in this amazing house trying to stay awake until night time.. only a few more hours to go, but for now were having "soup" supper maybe?? haha LATER!!

Sarah the only reason you got throught that terminal is because of your expert training at Cape. You know its true, don't deny it. I'm very proud of ya tho.. I woulda sat down and cried untill someone figured it out for me haha.
