4 airports in a day
Woke up at 4:40am, quickly got dressed ad ready before Chris' parents gave us a lift to
airport for our first flight to Frankfurt. Got there in plenty of time before queuing to take our Ryanair flight.
After speaking nicely to the stewardess she gave us Emergency Exit seats once on the plane so although the flight was merely an hour long, it was a comfy one.
Then, once we'd landed in
we got the bus from Frankfurt Hahn to Frankfurt International, a nice bus ride of 1.5 hours. It was packed so we couldn't sit together, but Chris managed to make friends with a bloke
who was a aircraft spotter, and was coming to see the new Dreamliner depart (glad Chris got that one!). We then went and checked in using the self service and Chris managed to get us extra legroom seats (bonus) for our Condor flight and with plenty of time to kill we went for some lunch.
We boarded and got chatting to our neighbour Margaret who was lovely and had a nice flight, making sure Chris went for regular walks. After arriving at Baltimore Washington we went and found our super shuttle service and were soon on our way to DC. The (not-so-super) shuttle seemed to take forever, about 1.5 hours actually and he managed to drop off the other two passengers first before finally dropping us at our hotel. The hotel room was lovely and we chilled for a few hours before falling asleep.
