My German trip part 4

Friday 13’th of May

Never, ever travel on a Friday the 13’th!

We got up at 05. Got ready for breakfast at 6.30, left the hotel at 7.10 to jump on the first train 07.31. Our travel planner did a great job so we just followed directions and everything went smooth.….until we arrived to the flight.
At the security check I got a visitation of my body – niiiiice ;)
My sister was brought to a room where they did a TNT test on her shoes *hahaha*
Yeah, we do look like talibans…
The flight in Stuttgart was 30+ minutes late so we didn’t know if we’d make the transit in Zürich. I’m a Christian, and when ever I’m in trouble I use my connection with God to make Him help me. I simply asked Him to make sure we'd make the transit to get to Zürich. After my pray my stress level got down to normal since now it was nothing I could do anymore, it was in the hands of God.

As we landed we had 14 minutes to go to the new gate and to hope it wasn’t closed. And if the luggage was to make it no one knew, the stewardess gave us little hope. We ran and then we got to a security check. I just felt the time running out – but then we had to go on a special lane and the plane actually waited for us!
Thank you God!

Next panic: arriving at Copenhagen airport. 31 minutes to find the luggage deposit (if the luggage even made it), get it and then find our way to the right train.
We ran for 5 minutes just to get to the luggage rail (I have no idea what it is called - but you know what I mean). I thanked God that we made it and gave Him another tough task - to make sure we got our luggage AND made the train. I know that was asking for a lot. With 14 minutes left before the train left FINALLY our luggage showed. Wohooo! We ran like two fat chicks finding out there was free melted cheese ahead. Went around two corners, found an elevator that took us to the right rail - with still 13 minutes to go. Whoa - what a day!!!

But nah, the trouble wasn't over - Murphy's law. Long story short, the train broke down halfway home so we had to change trains, making me miss my transit so I got home to my family, who I longed for, 2 hours later.
But still happy story - I did get home, alive, with all my luggage.
Nedless to say: Thank God!

Now I'm not trying to make anyone a Christian - but I must say I'm amazed about the crazy luck we had!


  1. Are you serious about the fact that you say that you are a christian?

    Just curious and suprised.

  2. Yeah, God really comes through, right? Sounds like you made several of your connections right on time (sorry about the last one)!

  3. painted u and ur sis ^v^

  4. Awww... it's so sweet to see how much faith you have in God. Although I'm no longer a Christian, I admire people who are so trusting in God :) he was definitely with you on that journey xxx

  5. does she really wear a 'team edward' button? is that a joke or serious or serious but with a wink to it? =)

  6. Hmm I guess I'm kind of shocked at your choice of religion, but it doesn't change any of the lovely things about you.
    I just hope this is one of very very few "omg yay christianity!" posts from you Adora :( it was kind of off putting. A mention of it it fine but you were really driving it home.

  7. I don't understand why anyone would think negatively of you being a Christian. It's not like you are trying to convert anyone, and you are definitely not negative towards other religions. I am surprised, but pleasantly surprised. You are an example that Christians can be alternative or goth, and that our religion has nothing to do with how we dress.

  8. Considering I subscribe in your blog, Adora, it is simply because I am interested in you. If your religion is part of who you are, then I welcome that part of you openly. You don't need to hide who you are simply to accommodate others. This is what makes you such an inspiring person. Much love from USA.

  9. I just need to say how happy I am that you are so open about your religion. As a christian myself it makes me so happy!
