Wow this is going much faster than I thought it would. I thought the weeks leading up to this trip would seem like months. I have to say, it has gone by very quickly. Now if I can make that reverse itself when I get there and make it go really slow then.
Yesterday's bump in the road seems to be worked out now. My plane is supposed to arrive at 7 am in Amsterdam. Being that I am flying on United and they are known for lousy service, I may or may not arrive on time. Also after arriving I assume it will take some time for all of the passengers to clear customs and get their baggage. Then I have to find an ATM machine so I can draw money out of my checking account into Euros. I expect all of this may take a couple of hours. Petra can be at the airport shortly after 9 am so this might work out just right after all.
I can see it now. We spot each other across the airport terminal. Our eyes light up. We smile and start running towards each other. I run through the security checkpoint sending all of the alarms at the airport off. My last vision of Petra is her shocked face as the guards haul me away for interrogation. I can hear Petra saying in the background....foei, foei jack. Hmmm, that doesn't sound too romantic. LOL
