After about 15 mins or so I started to get a bit panicky! I searched through my bag for my Ipod and opened up my contacts application. "Maybe I can try and use the pay phone to call Mike's new cellphone?".. I browsed around for the nearest phone.
There were two of them.. sitting off to the side looking ridiculously scary lol.
I didn't have any German money yet so I figured I could use my debit card.
I lifted the handle and fumbled around with the buttons. I couldn't find an "English" setting.. so I guessed around with the German selections. I finally came to a screen and dialed the number.... "beeeeep..... beeeeeeep.... beeeeeep" CRAP! I must have done something wrong because there is NO ring! (** NOTE--- I had NO clue at the time, but in Germany the phone 'beeps' instead of 'ringing', so in actuality I was most likely calling and being connected to Mike before I hung up! LOL.. The things you find out AFTER the fact! *sigh* ) I slammed the phone down and took a deep breath..
NOW WHAT?! I decided to go stand right out front. I figured just incase they searched the airport and gave up looking for me, they might make a last ditch effort and circle the outside.
Not even 10 minutes after waiting outside I see Mike walking up! HOOOOORAAAY!! My hubby is here to save me!! :0D
He grabbed my suitcase and we headed to the car for my very first autobahn experience!
VrooooOooOoOm! Off to my new hometown-- Baumholder! I was in a daze as we zipped around on the autobahn.. A trip that would have take hours back home could be accomplished in a small portion of that time! The roads are so orderly and the traffic just flows. Everyone follows the rules and you get to your destination so much quicker!
Oh, and did I mention the cars?!! A Euro car lover's dream!!!! VWs.. Audis.. Porche.. BMW.. Mercedes.. etc.. new and old.. and the "old" were SOOOO well taken car of.. *heavenly!* lol
AHHHHHHH... speeeedy .... This takes some getting used to for sure!
Only a little bit of a drive and we had arrived!
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUN!
**Beautiful Baumholder Germany! **
Now the journey really started! My next few posts will recap a bit of what I've done so far!
