Our Family life...

And we are at home…

This morning started yesterday on the west-coast of the USA. We had a free late check-out so we had plenty of time to pack suitcases. We arrived on the 21st of september with 2 suitcases, actually 3 but one of the suitcases was placed inside another one. The total weight of the suitcases was about 35 kilo and we were curious about the total weight on our way back home. Packing was a bit difficult because we had a problem with the space in the suitcases. We bought a couple of pairs of shoes which took a lot of place but we managed to fit everything in the 3 suitcases and in our cabin luggage.

At 12 o’clock it was time to drive to the airport. The drive to the airport was 29 miles and we had for 35 miles gas left so if everything went well and there was no traffic-jam and I did not take a wrong exit we should be fine. And indeed everything went well and we were perfect on time at the rental car return. From there we needed a shuttle-bus to the international terminal to drop off our baggage. Dropping off the was no problem except for the pricing for an additional suitcase, they went up from $50 to $100 per extra suitcase.

After dropping the suitcases we had a sandwich before we went to the gate. The gate was a bit different as expected. We bought expected to board the Airbus A380-800 by bridges but no we need to board into busses. There was a whole seating organisation to lead the whole process and at the end everyone ended up at the same and only tower to board the plane.

We had excellent places on the upper-deck of the plane with some extra space on the window side of our seats. The flight was very pleasant  and we came out more fit as usual. I guess this is because off all the new technology for climate control they put into planes today. We left LAX with a delay of almost 45 minutes and arrived almost on time in Paris. But in Paris it took over 30 minutes to park the plane at the gate which meant we had only 60 minutes left to cross the whole airport including an a bus ride to the Terminal 2G. From Terminal 2G we boarded our plane towards Nürnberg. This boarding took place outdoor and the rain was pouring down on us.

Soon we arrived at Nürnberg and here we hoped to see our suitcases again. And we were lucky, they were among the first to be on the baggage-caroussel. We walked through custom without any question and rushed to the metro towards the central train station and from there we would take a train home to Altdorf.

And in Altdorf a colleague of me, Jörg, picked us up at the airport to drive us back home.
