Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Traveling is enough excitement for me

I don't know if I have had so many things happen on just a travel day. Let me start from Saturday.

Pete Palmer was over at my house by 7:30am and he (with a little help from me)was able to get the motar base down for our shower, just in time for Nicolle to take me to the airport. Once at the airport, I realized that I did not have my cellphone. Nicolle was great and went home to pick it up(t-minus 60 minutes till liftoff). After she left, I checked in and it was brought to my attention that I did not have my passport(kind of required for international travel). I got a hold of Nicolle and asked her to bring my passport(T-minus 40 minute til liftoff). The check in lady was really nice, and sent my luggage on. Nicolle got caught in traffic and with 5 minutes till liftoff, she got me my stuff that I had forgotten(Thanks hon).

I got on the plane and then we took off. After arriving in Dullas(washington airport) I was informed that the plane was overbooks and I was going to be moved from coach to business class for the flight from Washington to copenhagen. That was great news and I figured that I would be able to get like 4 or 5 hours of sleep on the flight. Wrong, between watching the movie Click(good movie, but crude in points, why do they have to add little things that add nothing to the plot, but makes the movie almost unviewable) and the turbulence, I got a whopping 1 hour of sleep.

After arriving in Copenhagen, I looked for my coworker who was traveling with me. I did not see her anywhere, and just assumed that she was avoiding me because I got upgraded and she didn't. When I got on the plane for Sweden, she still was not on, and I thought you might have gotten bumped in DC for some vouchers. Then the pilot said they were taking someone luggage off the flight who had lost their passport. I thought that might have been her. I found out later, that it was her, and she somehow over the Atlantic had lost her passport, and was stuck in Copenhagen. She should arrive in Sweden on Monday, lets hope she ends up ok.

When I got to Gothenburg, my luggage was lost, which was not a big thing, because, my luggage always get lost when I take this flight. My luggage just shows up a few hours later. Well apparently my luggage and my coworkers passport have both been lost somewhere between Greensboro and Sweden, I would guess they are in Greenland. So, I get to wear jeans to work on Monday and might even get to go shopping and get some tight European clothing. My dreams have come true. I do have pictures, but I cannot download them because the attachment cable in in my luggage also. I will download them when I can.

I can't wait to see you in tight European pants. Please wear a button down shirt with a huge collar and unbuttoned half way down!

You'll be sooo stylish!

Holy cow! What a crazy flight. Are you sure you weren't being followed by someone with hidden cameras for a TV show or something? Hope the luggage shows up eventually. Our coats that we took to Salt Lake never did show up.

Whatever Greg. Don't pretend like you don't already own tight european pants--isn't that the only kind you have?

And remind me to never go traveling with you unless you promise to let me have the business class seat and hold my passport!
