Zurich Airport

After racing from one terminal to the next in Atlanta with a carry-on that is at least 50 pounds (no wheels!) I finally made it to my flight, out of breath and very hot and sweaty!  I had less than 10 minutes before I had to board my plane, and used that time to make a few last minute phone calls to my friends and family. 

The flight was cake—I was on the side of the plane where there are only 2 seats and I totally lucked out because the seat next to me was empty! So I stretched out and slept the whole time- who needs business class when you’ve got karma?! I’ve definitely paid my fair share in transcontinental flights stuck in the middle of 2 fat strangers.  I woke up just as breakfast was being served and we landed within the hour. 

I just got off the plane in Zurich—or what I like to call the Madison Avenue of Airports.  Trying to find the correct terminal to Prague I pass Hermes, Armani, Gucci, Hugo Boss—its ridiculous!  Everyone here is so chic and dressed to the nines—and its only 7:30 am!  Then again there are also businessmen in the bar drinking, so clearly there’s a different lifestyle here.

About time to board the plane… I’m SO EXCITED!! Woo hoo!
