Ready to Go!

By this time tomorrow I will already be in Chicago waiting for my flight to Switzerland.

I have printed off my boarding passes, the last item on my long checklist of things to do before I leave.

Yesterday I received an email from my cousin Brigitta.  She knows that I am trying to learn German, but I think that she overestimates my fluency in the language.  Her short message was entirely in German.  However, I had a pretty good guess of what she wrote.  I went to Google Translate to be sure, and I was correct.  I guess my German is progressing.  I would probably be tongue-tied trying to say it myself, and I would probably be lost if someone said it in rapid fire German.   But I understood her written word.  I figured out that Brigitta had told me, "We will wait for you in the big hall outside of customs."

Switzerland, here I come!


  1. Have a great trip!

  2. I'm thinking of you flying over the "pond". Buen suerte'

    1. Thank you, Barbara. At this moment I am in Chicago O'Hare waiting for my Swiss Airlines flight!
