Everyone on this trip was so thrilled to hear this statement, I’m sure. I started my day at 6:30 am European time, 11:30 pm Kansas time. I did the usual morning routine, then finished packing. I was not ready for this long journey home, however, I knew it would be worth it. After we arrived at the Munich Airport, we had to go through security, and let me tell you, it was no fun whatsover. For some, we were able to breeze on by, others didnt get through until almost boarding time. All of us were super excited to board our flight ON TIME and with no delays! We boarded the plane and we were off. I planned to get sleep on the plane, but my brain had other plans. United Airlines had TVs for everyone. We were able to play games, watch movies, television shows, or watch our flight map. I decided to watch a movie and then I would get some sleep. I ended up watching five movies which lasted our entire 10 hour flight! I was glad the flight was able to go by fast, but oh boy was I exhausted. We landed in Washington D.C. and went through U.S. Customs (which was a breeze), grabbed a quick snack, then boarded our flight to Kansas City. Although our plane was bigger than the plane to Chicago, everyone was still very uncomfortable. I slept for most of the flight, but when I woke up, I was miserable. Soon though, we landed in Kansas City. I was so excited to see my dad when I got off of the plane. It was a comforting feeling, saying that I was finally home! I had an amazing trip. One that I will never forget. I have made so many memories with all of the people from home and the folks I met in Europe. There were definitely highs and lows, but I loved my time there. I not only learned so much about the history and culture of Europe, but I also learned that I will always want to travel and learn more. This has been an amazing start to my 2015. I hope you all have enjoyed hearing about our trip!
