    Day 1.5

    June 14, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 55 °F

    Arrived in Frankfurt without issue. However, once we got there, it was quite an adventure. Passport control only had two agents and the backup was reaching the stairs. It took us 45 minutes.
    When we got to baggage claim, we met up with Paul and Michelle. They got there about 2 hours before we did. With hugs all around,
    We rented a 9 passenger van, first for us, and it is perfect for our family European trip. We spent the next 3 hours driving to Spangdahlem, that is where my oldest grandson is stationed in the Air Force. We had lunch with him on base and said goodbye until tomorrow.
    Linda found this cute little hotel in Doodledorf, Germany. It is a quaint hotel, just perfect for our first night in Germany together.
    Ate dinner at the Burg Bistro (cash only).
    This has been a long day for us, by now barely keeping our eyes open, we all opt for going to bed early.
    Tomorrow begins the real adventure. We leave Germany, drive through Belgium and onto Normandy.Gute Nacht!

    Note: today was a day of seeing the Lord intervening in our behalf several times: a vehicle that would hold all of us and our luggage, a lost cell phone found and returned, learned what " blue" means for a diesel engine, and having the exact euro's for a place that only takes cash. Awesome.
