We went to Ramstein to catch a military flight aka free to Baltimore. Well we missed the flight because there were not enough seats on it. BOOHOO! So we set out to find a room for the night since the next flights out were EARLY in the morning. We tried a couple different hotels and they were either too expensive or no room, bahhh humbug! Anywho, we finally found one for a decent price. It turned out to be pretty nice. Our room was connected to our friends through a doorway, which was nice, their kids could run free. It was The Kid's first time staying in a hotel so of course I documented it. Here he is hanging out.
Day 2, we wake up before the Sun and head to the terminal. We got there and it was SUPER packed with troops. So our first chance at a flight was at like 7:30am. Just our luck, cancelled, cancelled, cancelled. All the flights we were hoping to be able to catch that morning were cancelled. Good times, NOT. So we were waiting for one last change flight around lunch time. All of the sudden they announced a few open seats on a flight to McGuire AFB. We were lucky enough to catch that flight out. (Our friends made the next flight out to Baltimore). So we went on a KC 135. This is not an ordinary plane with ordinary seats and luxuries. It was just the opposite. COLD and LOUD. Ha, but it got us to exactly where we needed to be. So the Kid had his first flight on a military plane, and it was an international flight. He did AWESOME! Only cried twice, and no one could hear it because it was so loud on there. Here is on the plane.
We got to the base, picked up the rental car and settled into lodging for the night. The Mr went and picked up some food while Chango and I got comfy, we were exhausted from a long day of traveling. Late late that night The Mr headed to the Phili airport to pick up his cousin. She was joining us for a couple days!!
