So what to do on a 10 hour flight???? This leg to amsterdam is Long but somehow time flies. Pardon the terrible pun!!!
Now before u form a mob and holler “those spoiled brats. …..keep in mind we have steves Hard earned IBM road trip frequent flyer miles to thank for the business class upgrades on this journey
We have the ultimate seats too. First row on the plane and no neighbors!
Ok. The dinner menu… Are u ready for this??? First courses were a marinated shrimp cocktail ,tomato blue cheese bisque. And a baby romaine,heirloom tomato and blue cheese salad
Main course a filet mignon medium rare. Sweet potato cottage fries and sAuteed zucchini
OMG THESE PHOTOS MAKE THE FOOD LOOK DISGUSTING!! HONEST!! IT LOOKED AND TASTED GREAT!!
Dessert was your choice of a Guggenheim icecream sundae or fresh fruit on skewers with nummy cheese wedges
OMG. And all the good wine you can drink. We both had to say NO MORE After two glasses but wanted to partake of more. Wine is no good for jet lag
So now after lights out on a full tummy and a warm buzz we were both lucky to have slept for about six hours and here comes the food again.Omlets and pastries and Orange Juice OH MY!!!!! Nooooooo!!! It’s all so good but we are still digesting our steaks. It was hard to take a “pass” on breakfast but we had no choice!!
It looks like we have about 1/2 hour before we land so I will sign off for now and send this as soon as we get settled in at the 8 hour Amsterdam airport layover
ABOVE…WE ARE HERE AT THE KLM LOUNGE IN AMSTERDAM!! WE ARRIVED AROUND NOON
Having spotty WI FI connections here so I’ll sign off for the time being and post more before we leave here for Cairo. This next leg of the flight is only about 4 hours and is 2000 miles from Amsterdam to Cairo. Steve says this is a bit farther than our flight from Portland Oregon to Minneapolis on Friday. Do you visualize Cairo Egypt /Africa being so close to Amsterdam?? Even with me being a geography buff it just seems “wrong” somehow.
I apologize for the not so great photos…they will get much better when we actually have some light and subject matter other than an airplane or lounge to shoot. When we get to our hotel in Cairo we can load some of the wedding photos too and post a few from the good camera.
Talk to you all in a bit!! Hugs..Sandra and Steve and Bling and Mini B!!!
