The Layover

Before I could fly to Stockholm, I had a long layover in Frankfurt. How to fill the time? Take a bath and a nap since I really did not sleep on the flight over. My niece and nephew will have a couple of new rubber duckies to add to their collection.   IMG_0079

After a light lunch I was driven in Porsche to the plane because it was not parked at a gate. We were going all over the tarmac and at one point I was convinced that the driver was either lost or was trying to figure out where the plane was parked.

Why a travel blog

I admit it – I don’t like to write much.  So why am I starting a travel blog? The simple answer is I love to travel.  I recently figured out that I’ve travel outside of the United States for pleasure over 25 times in the last 10 years, not to mention the trips within the U.S.  I’ve encountered interesting sights and quirks during the course of my travels beyond the usual tourist sights and experiences.  While I remember all these trip to some extent and have pictures laying around somewhere, I have not captured these interesting sights and quirks in any meaningful way and memories fade.  Since I’m not good at keeping track of paper and I change computers every few years, a travel blog seemed a good way to record them without having to figure out where to store them or remember where I put them in the first place.  It’s also an opportunity to share them with family and friends.  So I hope you enjoy the postings and please let me know what you think.
