    Going back home

    August 30, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    I got up at 6:45 AM and it worked! I grabbed all my stuff and left for the office. My co-worker was also there at that early time and so we were able to cover the rest of our topics. Unfortunately I had to leave already shortly after 10 AM. I took the lightrail to the airport and arrived there 40 minutes later. I have planned enough time if there would be a big crowd already waiting. But this time everything went really smoothly and I got to my gate over one hour before the boarding time. I had to wait and during that I felt like being in Asia instead of USA. There were so many Asian people because all other gates next to mine were served by Chinese airlines and the gates did a lot of loudspeaker announcements in Mandarin. But then there was boarding time finally. The flight time was about 9 hours. I watched two movies and had dinner including two beers. Then I tried to sleep which is always not so easy for me. The plane arrived on time in Frankfurt and then I had a connecting flight to Munich one hour later. Once I have arrived Munich I already had to wait quite long for the baggage but the situation at the rental car counter was just crazy. It felt like waiting forever. After over 1,5 (!!!) hour I finally got my car. Never ever Europcar again. Unfortunately this was the choice from my company. During the drive back to Ravensburg it started raining heavily and it didn't stop until I have arrived at my flat. Now it is over bit it was an awesome trip to the USA and I am looking forward for the next one which hopefully happens :-)Read more
