On September 12th, my friend Susie and I prayed that on my trip to Sweden God would surprise me on how comfortable it would be. Just looking at the itinerary it had the possibility of being just the opposite.
I could have bought a regular ticket and chose to fly as easily and directly as possible, but my only possibility to be able to buy the ticket was to use Frequent Flyer Miles. The cost for the trip would be the $50 yearly fee for the time it takes me collect the miles and the taxes. Not a bad deal!
Day One: Leave the house at 4:00 AM to fly to Dallas, Ft Worth and then on to Miami, Florida, arriving there at 11:15 AM, with a stop-over until the next day.
Day Two: Leave my friend’s house at 9:30 AM to sit at the airport until the plane for Germany left at 4:00PM.
Day Three: Lose 6 hours. Arrive in Düsseldorf at 7:00 AM. Wait there for a plane to Berlin leaving at 2:10 PM. From Berlin take a plane to Gothenburg at 5:30 PM and arrive in Gothenburg, Sweden at 6:45 PM. From there a 2+-hour car drive to my final destination for the trip.
Here I am… it’s done! All well!
I will tell the story in parts, when I get caught up on my sleep. I lost two nights!
