Last week we shared the first half of our journey.
We left Colorado, had a great vacay in Arkansas and Missouri, and had Christmas at home for the first time in five years!
We left mom and dad's right after the new year.
What followed was a blur of hotels, fast food,
plains, trains, and automobiles ...
And now, for the rest of the story!
|and we're waiting . . .|
|and waiting . . .|
|Finally winging our way to MD.|
|Quick dinner in Baltimore.|
|Up and out early!|
|Our chariot awaits.|
|Military terminal - nice!|
|Not bad for airport food!|
|Love my man. If we're not two hours early - we're late!|
|Bo took this beauty. Sunset over the Atlantic.|
|Half way there!|
|Touchdown-woohoo! Thank goodness for the wonderful|
USO who kept the coffee and cocoa poured,
|while we waited on the world's slowest baggage carousel.|
All we had to do was relax and wait. At least we'd finally arrived, right?
Seems there's a little matter of a six hour bus ride from Ramstein to Hohenfels! Funny how no one thought to mention that little nugget of info!
|Only about a dozen people on our bus. Could've been worse.|
We stopped half way to grab lunch. The driver took us to this wonderfully exotic local flavor. Maybe you've heard of it ...
After six days and 6,000 miles, we had finally reached our destination.
And after over 20 hours of continuous travel -
|Army guest house.|
We were then moved down the road to our 'permanent, temporary' abode.
It was in a little village called Hormansdorf.
Our first true German meal was the breakfast buffet.
Breads, sausages, cheeses, and spreads - most of which I liked, none of which I knew the name!
We learned that dogs are welcomed just about anywhere people are, so this little guy met us in the dining room.
|Dinner at the Scholl Gasthof. Loved it!|
|We dub thee Ivan!|
Our first walk about was breathtaking. It was misty and quiet and beautiful.
Couldn't believe our luck! Off post military housing in a great location!
I guess vacation is over.
We're loving our new home, but missing all of you.
Please keep us in your prayers.
We'll share more soon.
You know, the rest of the rest of the story!
