Over Christmas, we flew to Germany to visit some U.S. friends who were living abroad for several months. They were kind enough to take us in and be family travel buddies past New Years.
We didn’t plan on taking 12 hours (door to door) to get to Uncle B & Aunty E’s place, but that’s what happened. Two flights with a lot of turbulence and a rental car company that overbooked their reservations made for a very long day for the kids. But they managed surprisingly well.
