EUROPE TRIP – CHICAGO to LONDON to FRANKURT

It has been a long trip. I finally got back home last night, extremely tired and jetlag – woke up 4am!

Anyways, this trip has been very fulfilling … partial for work and part for fun.

We started in St. Louis and Chicago O’Hare airport, took British Airways to London and connect to final destination Frankfurt.

We had a big breakfast in STL airport Chili’s. Nothing to wow about, just simple breakfast to fill up our tummy. I couldn’t finish the potatoes.

We had a 4 hours wait in Chicago, so we ended up eating more!! My boss really want to fill me up!

We stopped at Tocco inside the international terminal. It is a Italian Neaplitan wood fired pizza. We ordered lemonade to refresh ourselves after the long security lines.

The waitress suggested Quattro Stagioni – it has black olives, mushrooms, artichokes, ham and topped with easy over egg. Pizza was pretty thin and excellent balance of flavors, not bad really.

Our plane – Boeing 747, I haven’t flew in 747 in a long time … I almost forgot how jumbo this plane is.

After 7 hours 30 minutes, we finally arrived in London … its my first time in this new terminal 5 in London. Everything is very bright and new, lots of travelers of course. I really love this new terminal.

Finally our short flight London to Frankfurt, only 1 hour 40 minutes. We were given a Smoked Ham and Cheese Croissant. This is different from US flights, usually we only get a bag of peanuts or pretzels.
