Guten tag from Germany! Last week we left off in Spain (hereís the link to the archives). After exploring the holy city of Santiago de Compestela, it was time to get back on a plane. This week we travel to Germany via Madridís brand new $7 billion dollar Terminal 4. If you want to get a glimpse of this new airport and take a tour of Cologneís famous chocolate museum, then come aboard Ė our plane is leaving. One added attraction: In honor of the busiest travel week of the year, we offer some airport tips to help you enjoy turkey day.
I canít believe itís already Thanksgiving! Holy cow, did this year fly by fast! Speaking of flying: If youíre taking to the skies this week, youíre much braver than I. This is the one week I donít travel in the U.S. I canít take the crowds and long lines brought about by people who donít often travel, and have no clue about rules and procedures. Traveling this week in America takes all the fun out of it for me. But if you are, I hope you at least avoid Wednesday and Sunday, the two busiest days of the year for domestic travel. To make your holiday travel a bit easier: Leave extra early, be up-to-date on the new 3-1-1 liquids rule for carry-on luggage (3-ounce bottle or less; 1 quart-sized clear plastic zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger that needs to be placed in a screening bin [hereís the link
for more info]. Note that Europe has similar rules). Also, be sure to take your shoes and jackets off before going through security. As always, put them and your laptop in separate bins. This next bit of advice is crucial: Be polite to everyone, and pack your patience. Donít forget to smile -- itís Thanksgiving!
