We Made It!

This is the good news of the week. Despite all imaginable hurdles, we made it all the way to Sweden. We miraculously made our connection in Chicago (our luggage didn't, but that's OK) and almost missed our connection in Frankfurt due to sheer stupidity (or lack of knowledge, as Todd put it). For your reference, it takes an hour to get from one gate to another in Frankfurt.

What we learned (and already knew) is that we should never do another trip with two connections. Bad idea. Next time, we'll drive down to Chicago and catch a direct flight to Stockholm. I don't care if it is a bit more expensive.

Anyway, now I am down with a bad cold (typical vacation fare) and will be in bed for most of the day, while the rest of the gang take the commuter train into Stockholm for a day on the town. My goal is to recover fully today and be ready to go tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a new day.
