Finally arrived in Europe.
After 3 delayed flights Mike, our luggage, and I all arrived safely in Germany. It was a long trip, but the overnight flight turned out to be alright and the food was decent. In the end we made it to Basel with no problems and our lovely friend Meike met us at the airport. We stayed with her and her family in Heitersheim, a really nice town not far outside Freiburg. Her and her family have been treating us to lots of delicious German food since we arrived. They took us out to a great local restaurant where Mike and I had Flammenkuchen, we had meat, cheese, and fresh bread for breakfast and for supper Maultaschen.
On Monday we took the train to Freiburg and spent the day there. It’s such a great city! I can’t wait to live there for the year. The trains were great – right on time and with an automated ticket station. Another thing we’re looking forward to is easy transportation. We spent the rest of the night with Meike and her family and got ready to catch the red eye to Split.
