We thought we had hours to waste, but after parking in the cheap lot, getting to the airport from the cheap lot, figuring out the kiosks for boarding passes in French, checking bags, getting through security-the usual busy airport mayhem, it was time for takeoff. Here is what I liked about Lufthansa in France- free snack sandwiches which were actually kinda edible, and free wine.
We had a long layover in Frankfort and I promised lunch, knowing we could get a good sausage! Sure enough, airport food in Frankfort was perfectly acceptable, too. Up into the clouds we went again, more free food and wine then we arrived in grey, cold, windy Aberdeen, Scotland on the North Sea-way up there. I am sure this is the furthest north I have ever been. After getting a grilling from the immigration guy, it was wonderful to see familiar faces and hear nothing but English. Oh, how easy the next week will be!

|DOn't really know what it is - a ham-like meat, hard cooked egg, relish sammy|
|The Alps from 30,000 feet-looks pretty good for mid-October.|

|The sun came out at Loch Ness-we did not spot Nessy, but saw quite alot of unexplainable wake.|
