We Are Here!

Well what can I say about our first flight out?  I looked and Roc and said, somethng smells hot, like its burning or something.  She said yup I can smell it too.  The we asked Ken and of course he says I dont smell anything, everything is fine.  1/2 hour later, still stitting on the plane which has not moved the "voice" came on the speaker and said they were having mechanical difficulties and they had 4 different guys come on to check the gages up front.  Something to do with the fuel sensors?  Of course by this time my "medication" did NOT seem to be working and I was in the fetal postition!!! hehehehe!  Needless to say we got a late start and were a little worried about making our conecting flight in Amsterdam.  We only had a two layover.  So when we got to Amsterdam we RAN to catch our flight and did make it.  We arrived to a rainy Keiv where we loaded most of our luggage on a cart and wheeled the rest.  Since the streets and parking lots are not the best we dropped our luggage more than once in the puddles of water!!!  By the time we were all done Roc and I were laughing so hard it just didn't matter anymore!  I will post pictures tomorrow we are all pretty tired.  Are appt. is at 11 tomorrow so please be thinking of us and say a little prayer for good things.
