Here’s our on-board flight tracker. We just flew over Greenland and is approaching Iceland down below.

We left Seattle on time and traveled without incident.  I sat next to a guy that told me he was on his way to Nuremberg in Bavaria to Adidas headquarters to talk to them about their e-commerce* efforts.   Frankfurt was sunny and a decent 50°F/ 10°C at our arrival.

Here is the 747-400 that took us to Frankfurt. I sat on the top deck! It was great. We just stepped off the plane at Frankfurt. I guess they did not have a gate for us at the terminal, so we were taken there by bus.

It is 10.30 am Sunday morning and we had just arrived at Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (main train station). Just ten minutes later a train full of rowdy football (soccer) fans arrived, so there was mayhem on the platform with loud singing and banging fire-cracker explosion noises. Wow, go, go, go – get out of here! I thought, before they caught up with you, I was leaving the station. A dozen policemen were on hand to keep an eye on them, though.
