Looking forward to your report I am impressed to see that we are on page 5 already with only 1/4 of a day written and 32 more to come. This report when done could be a novel. However What better novel than one about a disney and cruising.

More coming soon! And without giving too much away, there WILL be several pics of KK!

What an exciting start to your trip of firsts! I love that even veterans can still have lots of firsts.
I know it sounds horrible to be hit by lightning, but apart from the initial strike it was not that bad at all.

Yuki, we had so many firsts, it was unbelievable, and it was an awesome trip.

Welcome!
It amazes me too, that we have already made it to page 5 and we have not even left Europe yet.
I am glad you enjoy reading along. There is lots of fun to report about.

Day 1, August 7

That’s NOT the way we wanted to start off our vacation! - Part 2

We were in no hurry to get anywhere, as we had a 7 hour layover in Frankfurt anyway, so once we had gotten off the plane we took a little stroll through the airport before we headed for the lounge again, to settle down for the time being.
We still had 6 hours until our next flight was supposed to take off, so once we had shown our tickets and were granted access we headed upstairs and were blown away. The lounge was really beautiful and large, and some areas were pretty full. It took us a few seconds to locate two chairs next to each other and we walked over and sat down.





Before we did anything else Tom wanted to try if we had free internet, so we set up the netbook and tried – worked! Score! We would be able to check our email and surf the web while waiting. Once that was solved we took trips to the bathroom and then went to check out the buffet. The breakfast on board had been nice, but it had been about two hours and there were yum things offered at the lounge buffet, there were soups, salads, spreads, veggies and “Frankfurter”, a hot dog like sausage. We both chose the same, the Frankfurter, Tom had his in



a hot dog bun, complete with pickled gerkins, mustard and ketchup, while I chose to eat it the European way.



I got some Diet Coke to go with it, while Tom got



some beer. And since there were so many delicious looking things on the buffet, we even went back for seconds. Tom tried





the glass noodle salad, some spreads and some veggies, while I tried something sweet,



creamy Semolina pudding topped with stewed plums. Might not sound so nice, but it was indeed very good and we both loved our choices.
Once we were done we moved over to a little area where there were numerous power outlets, where I plugged in my netbook and surfed the web, while Tom was charging his phone, while reading on his pad.
Time had gone by quickly and we decided to have one more drink,





a coffee from an automated coffee station, complete with wafer biscuit to go with it. It was around 11.30 when we left the lounge and walked downstairs, had a look into some of the stores, bought some scales that go up to 75 lbs and finally hit the duty free store.
Tom picked up a bottle of Whiskey and then we finally headed to our departure gate. It was pretty full there but we found a seat and waited. Our boarding time came and went and nothing moved, NO plane in sight. About half an hour before we were supposed to take off there was the dreaded announcement, our departure was delayed. Another hour’s wait.
We decided not to wait it out at the gate, but to wait in the lounge in a comfy chair. Upon returning to the lounge we both picked up a beverage, found a chair and watched a little TV.
An hour later we were still checking the monitor and times had not changed, so we headed downstairs to the gate again. We had just made it there when we heard the next announcement. The plane had a major technical defect and our 2pm departure was now delayed until 4.30. And not just delayed until then, but the next “time announcement” was supposed to be at 4.30. Quick thought about what to do and after asking if any news would be announced in the business lounge we were on our way back there.


To be continued ............

I'm glad you had that wonderful lounge to hang out in, but it is NEVER fun when a flight gets delayed. Bummer!

I hope the next announcement is a good one!

Food looks good, drinks look better.

I hate delays...I hope it wasn't too much past 4:30 that you finally took off.

Wow, they lay out quite a spread in the Lufthansa lounge! Every United lounge I've been in seems to serve the same thing (and that's from coast to coast!). Wrapped cheese slices, some fruit, wrapped crackers, chocolate covered raisins and I lose track from there.
When they say the next update is at a given time, I just cringe. Not a good sign. Hope things pick up from there!

Nice to have the Biz class! especially if you have a 7 hr layover. I can't believe your plane was hit by lightening, and it seems it was no big deal! Looking forward to more!
