After a six hour flight to Amsterdam and a 12 hour flight to Cape Town...we made it! We are still waiting for some members of our group and hopefully they can join us soon.
Things I have learned in the past 24 hours
1. Weekend after Christmas travel is insane. It took about an hour and some change just to check in without the security portion.
2. If you arrive at Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport) at 6 am you will see grown people passed out on mushroom shaped furniture all over the airport.
3. There is a limit to how many times you can watch the movies; Charlie St.Cloud, Going the Distance, and Eat, Pray,Love on a 12 hour flight.
