It has been a beautiful, warm winter day! I am almost packed.
We will drive to Minneapolis tomorrow. Amazingly the carry-on bag is holding everything from maps to the kite that I try to fly in places where I travel. The last time I flew the kite was on Inch Beach, Ireland. My friend, Beth, was also with me at Inch Beach. Beth is a childhood friend, and now lives in Madrid. She and I will be together for the first part of the trip.
I finally spoke with an agent from Air Europa, the airline that I will be taking from Frankfurt to Madrid. Unfortunately, I will have to go out of the airport, and start over with the whole check-in, security and passport process. Like many people, the airport and flight are usually the least enjoyable part of travel.
