We left NC Friday morning, got to Chicago in plenty of time for our connection to Dusseldorf but the mechanics were still working on our plane for an hour and a half past when we were supposed to take off. They were unable to make up ANY time in the air so our 2 hour lay-over in Dusseldorf was insufficient and they ended up having to hold the plane and escorting us across the airport. We made it to Copenhagen in time to catch our cruise but our 10 pieces of luggage did not. Before you start questioning my sanity bringing 10 pieces of luggage on a trip, let me tell you there were 10 of us on this trip. In that light, it doesn't sound so bad.
Fortunately, we were smart enough to pack the kids' bathing suits in our carry on bags so once we were on the boat, they were happy as clams.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
