Frankfurt LayoverJuly 31, 2017 in Germany
We arrived at 6 am local time, after a flight with screaming children. Needless to say, Jason wasn’t impressed. Then the security check saga began. Although only in transit, we needed to go through a security check, including a full body scan and a physical body search and then through customs, who grilled us on every detail of our trip.
Finally on board, we were mistaken for Germans by the German hostess. The mistake was probably ordering our drinks in German.
Ricky: “Wasser, bitte”.
Hostess replied with a whole lot of German and Ricky had to admit that his German was limited to Grade 8 German.
Hostess: ”But there wasn’t an accent so I thought you were German. And you look German.”
Grade 8 German obviously paid off.
Every holiday, people seem to think we are German. Last year, it was a Kyrgyz soccer player at Bangkok airport.At least, we weren’t mistaken for twins, which we got everywhere in India.
Now to complete the final leg to Europe.Amsterdam here we come!Read more
