Up, Up and Away
A week ago Saturday a man was flying humongous kites in an open field near us, just before what appeared would be a bombastic thunderstorm. And yes, I had my new camera with me and was able to zoom in (12x). This is one of them.
Today I fly to be with Donica in Hannover but via a circuitous route I've not made before (kinda like this kite!). I'll fly from Atlanta to Dusseldorf, Germany, and from there will take the 2-1/2-hour ride to Hannover by DB train tomorrow morning. This is World Cup season in Germany right now, so tickets of any sort were hard to come by when we booked my flight IN FEBRUARY.
James, BTW, from our blogging Neighborhood, lives in Dusseldorf, and loves taking the European trains, as do I. God willing and the creek don't rise, we plan to rendezvous for lunch in mid-June on my way home. Something to look forward to.
This will be a month-long trip this time around because we're taking a 12-day cruise for Donica's vacation (I'm always on vacation, right?!). I'll tell you more about that later, of course, but from May 26 - June 6 we'll be cruising from London to Scandinavia, Russia and Estonia. We can hardly wait. Like I said, more on that later. For right now, let's just get me to Hannover!
See you next over the pond, 6 hours ahead of whatever I was before!
