DQ's travel stories.
I thought I'd use this section as my travel story journal. lol
I have quite a few stories of lost luggage and missed flights.
I'll start off sharing a story that happened when I was about 8 years old. My dad was in the marine corps and we got transferred to Germany. He had to go a couple of months ahead of us. So here we were, my mom travelling alone with 3 kids, ages 5, 8 and 9. I think we flew out of New Jersey but I'll have to confirm that with my mom. lol We ended up missing our flight and ended up having to spend the night in a hotel. My mom had very little money on her because she didn't anticipate this happening. She didn't eat and my older brother decided to be a martyr and didn't eat either. My younger brother ate some gum drop things called Chuckles and got sick in the hotel room. I think we spent 2 nights there before we could get another flight. As we taxied down the runway my younger brother and I started singing Leaving on a jet plane. lol When we got to Germany we stayed in a hotel for 6 weeks before getting housing on base. For 3 kids it was an adventure.
