Starbucks or Zurich, Switzerland??

So. . . . . . . . I get an email on Wednesday, All the Subject line said was:


I quickly open the email because it is from a friend of mine, Inside it said
"Wanna go to Zurich, Friday?"

Well, Sure I want to go to Zurich! ~ Why?? I've never been there before!, I get another Passport Stamp & I get to meet Sherri (@Flyingdesigner ). I met Sherri on Twitter, She's a Flight Attendant at another airline & when she started chatting up her Amsterdam layovers I had to know more. Amsterdam is Numero Uno on my "To Do" list. Sherri being a good Flight Attendant did what any good Flight Attendant would do when talking about a great layover, Sherri said "Pack your bag, Come & go with me" & we tried about three times to make the Amsterdam trip a reality, to no avail! When this email came to the inbox I was delighted. The stars & moon & non-rev Gods had all alined, to make this trip a GO FOR LAUNCH!...

Why is this Blog Worthy? In this day & age of Facebook, My Space & Twitter.... Friends are finding one another all over this world . . . . & end up asking the same question?

"Where do you want to Meet?"

So, where does one meet? Starbucks? A Bar? In a Park walking their dog?
NOT IF You are a Flight Attendant!~
Sherri & I had never actually met in person before this trip!
Now if you are a Flight Attendant or Crew Member or even an Airline Employee,,, You can relate to this story... Or so we thought,,,

We're all outside the gate waiting for the plane, I get to meet her Crew for the 1st time, We're all chatting,,, & We get the "How do ya'll know each other?",,

We met on Twitter,,,

Insert Deer in the headlights here______________________!!!

The next 15 minutes were filled with "Let's play 20 Questions"
From: What's Twitter? What do you mean ya'll have never met?

We arrive, Get to our rooms, Where I am informed to drop my bags,
We are meeting in the lobby in 15 minutes,,,
I ask Sherri, "Where are we headed?" I'm thinking breakfast or something
in that line, because it is 9am & her crew had been working so hard for the
past 9 hours!! Oh Noooo,, We are headed down the street to the best
Grocery Store in downtown Zurich!!! COOP What a great Store!!,
You have to love any store that dedicates an Entire Row to Swiss Chocolate!!
I got lots of goodies & thank goodness I could not bring back any liquids back in to the United States or I would of purchased way to much!
I'm not sure where or why the fascination came with going to the grocery store & Flight Attendants,,, but I love it!

Back at the hotel, time for a quick nap, we are meeting the crew
for dinner at 6pm & we must do a bit of walking around the old town prior to that!

Did you know the Swiss had Wine too? I love this Country!

Tomorrow: A quick day in Zurich!
