ADVENTURES IN OUR AMERICAN DREAM travel blog

Sam has grown at least a foot...:)


We had a very exciting day, we picked Vickie and Sammy up at Frankfurt Airport. This was our first time driving to this huge airport. I worked the GPS directing Jerry every move. We made it there without any problems but we did have a few traffic delays. It took us over 3 hours to get there, but we still made it in time for their arrival. The car we rented is huge, they gave us a limo type Ford vehicle, it is so large I was afraid it would not fit in the garage parking, I was right. We had to circle around the airport and go outside and park in a huge parallel parking area for two cars. :-) Now we know what to do next time. We are already planning a drive to Luxembourg tomorrow. Let the fun begin.

I am pasting a bit of information about the airport for my readers who want to know more about the airport. Check back later for more from Luxembourg.

Frankfurt Airport is by far the busiest airport by passenger traffic in Germany, the third busiest in Europe after London Heathrow Airport and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport and the 11th busiest worldwide in 2014,[5] posting record passenger traffic with 59.6 million passengers using the airport, an increase of +2.6% from 2013.[6] It also had a freight throughput of 2.09 million metric tons in 2013[7] it is also the busiest airport in Europe by cargo traffic. As of winter 2012/2013, Frankfurt Airport served 264 destinations in 113 countries, making it the airport with the most international destinations in the world.
