My first reader!! Welcome!! The flight from Nuremberg to Paris is rather short, about 50 minutes, so not too bad!

Yes, they are long. Actually going via Paris as compared to via Frankfurt made the flight about 30 minutes shorter as Paris is further west than Frankfurt!

I am afraid it will take me some time to work on this report... But at least this time I am not waiting on a slow co-writer to send things back to me, I can just post once the update is finished!

My father is usually good for early wake up calls as he gets up very early, but that was even to early for him. This was a case where the time difference actually was useful for once - normally I am not a fan of it!!

Herzlich Willkommen Karin!

I guess we better keep it in English, so the other's don't think we are talking about them!

Great to see you here - I have lurked on a few of your reports as well, and learned a lot of cruise tips from them!

I guess it is not too much of a spoiler if I tell you that she was in excellent shape and I did fall in love with her as well!

No alcohol this time?
Well, the only water rule still applies. But if an airline wants to throw champagne at you, you have to accept it!

At least I followed the no caffein rule!

It is very cool - if you can go upstairs. And usually that's reserved for first class.

This was the second time I was flying Air France to the US and both experiences have been really good.

The law of the European Union actually mandates that everyone needs to have at least 4 weeks of vacation time every year, here in Germany it is common for people to have 6 weeks. And if you get that much time off, you need to use it somehow. But unfortunately I know more and more people who have jobs where they find it difficult to take off for more than two weeks at a time.

I think the US should learn from Germany, everyone should get a minimum of a month's vacation!!! I know Dan will agreeI already get 4 weeks, but I could go for 6 weeks , mean lots more P &P trips

Joining in as well. I'm so glad to have met you on this adventure! The plane did look spacious. It's still a wonder any airline still serves food. And your looked decent at that. Can't wait to read more.

Can't wait to read more! You speak great English, by the way! Love your TR so far!

We have been to Nuremberg (we live in Britain). We actually drove from Calais to Hungary one summer and spent two nights at the Hilton in Nuremberg. I loved the hotel, and the city! Our friends stayed in Regensberg (spelled wrong, probably!) and loved it there too! My dad's colleague visits Nuremberg frequently to drive cars, funny, haha.

Your aero plane food looks rather nice! Our last flight to Florida was with American Airlines and the food was dreadful. We are flying with British Airways this time so I am hoping it will be better.

Looking forward to reading more!

Is that a recent thing with regards to the EU law? I agree about holiday time- generally 5-6 weeks is common here in the UK, and even that isn't enough! Especially when you compare it to the 13 weeks schools have off.

I have always felt bad for those in the US having little holiday time. We spoke to a man at WDW who only had two weeks off a year. How terrible! I was horrified. That must make it impossible to take more than a weeks holiday at a time. (Not sure about Germany but it is common here for families to take two weeks off in the summer and go abroad to Europe or the US. We couldn't function without our two week holiday!!! )
