What are we….crazy? Our connecting flight to Frankfurt was at 2:30 In The Morning! We enjoyed our beautiful room at the Intercontinental for a couple hours after the farewell dinner concluded and then rallied with four others in the lobby for the drive to the airport. Middle-of-the-night flights out of Jordan must be in vogue because the airport was definitely busy although obviously not operating at peak.
Our all-seats-taken flight took off right on time. I settled into my window seat and dozed off before the plane even left the ground. Just shy of five hours later we landed in Frankfurt looking like weary travels for sure but feeling a bit refreshed. We found the lounge and settled in for a five-hour layover. I couldn’t resist complementing a man sitting near me on how fresh he smelled. He said I could smell like soap and water too simply by signing up to use one of the shower rooms. He didn’t have to tell me twice. Dan and I each got a buzzer and waited our turn. Soap, shampoo, towel, and bathmat included. Clean and refreshed we were in the mood for breakfast.
Our Dulles-bound flight left on time. Nine hours, two meals, one nap, and three movies later we landed, zipped through immigration (thanks to Global Entry), grabbed our bags and headed home. We walked in the door mid-afternoon almost exactly 24 hours after leaving the Intercontinental.
