We're in Zurich -- For Another Hour, or Two, or Three...

Brenna, blogging in the Zurich airport.It's official, we're blogging from Europe! We've said goodbye to the US for a year (or so), hopped the plane, and after a long and blissfully uneventful overnight flight, we're in the Zurich airport tapping into the high speed wireless. We're waiting for our flight to Belgrade, which has been delayed a bit, and then a bit again. The kids are trouping along, and except for a few sharp words going through security (Owen just has NO security antenna), everybody is pretty happy. Ella wants to getElla has picked out several Swatches she wants. some M&M's for 2.90 Swiss Francs, but we've got only dollars right now, so sad girl has to make due with the box of Sees Candy that Brenna brought. Yes - Brenna is sitting in Switzerland eating a box of chocolates from California. Along with her first cup of coffee - in a paper cup from an airport kiosk.  If all coffee at airports in Europe is like this she may not come back.

More soon about sad goodbyes, last-minute freak-outs, and the final days of prep.

I'm surprised you didn't bring Traveller's Chocolate from Trader Joe's! (well, that can always be remedied...) Hats off to you and your endearing family. Eat well, travel safely und haben sie eine Wunderzeit! (not sure if that last one is a word, really)

Brenna's got the right idea with the See's. I've had the Swiss version and I'd take the See's every time. I'm taking 2# to Alaska for my son and daughter-in-law next week because they don't have it there. Good luck and thanks for sharing your experiences with all of us back home.

I can't wait to hear about your travels!

Regarding the next post: I used to agree with Ella, but now tomatoes aren't so bad if they are on pizza and covered with mozzarella cheese. :-)
