From Rockybado 5: #SanFranciscoBound
The drive from Crown Point, Indiana to the airport in Chicago took about an hour, as expected. When Toby Ingram and their parents left, Brody and David, Toby's older brothers, quickly went through the process of getting checked in and past security. Afterwards, they found themselves sitting at the gate waiting for their flight. For about an hour and a half, David and Brody walked around the general area and got some Chinese food and iced lattes before boarding.
The time spent waiting at the gate was time well spent. The whole waiting time took less than expected. Before they knew it, David and Brody found themselves boarding the plane to head to Germany. They had a bit of a layover during their trip, but chances were it wouldn’t be that long.
David and Brody sat in the plane, and they heard the emergency instructions for the umpteenth time. Then the plane started moving toward the runway.
Everyone’s favorite part.
“You ready, David?” Brody asked his older brother.
“You ready, Brody?” David asked his younger brother.
“Absolutely, I am!”
“That Chinese food was good.”
“You know, it really was. I think that was the first time I’ve been to that place. Every time we come, I like to go to all of the restaurants and try new things,” Brody remarked.
“That’s the spirit,” David said.
“What beer are you getting on the plane?”
“I don’t know yet. What about you?”
“Not sure yet. Or I might do some wine.”
“If only we had baklava to pair with it.”
The plane raced down the runway and then flew up. Going off the runway is by far David and Brody’s favorite part of flying in a plane. When the plane was up in the sky, the two brothers had to decide what movie to watch.
Their plan was to watch the same movie together at the same time.
The time in the airplane was going to be a lot, and so David and Brody had to make good use of it before they’d start their excursion in Germany. It was going to be several hours before they’d land at both places, and they felt like they needed to make the most out of it.
After several hours of movies, sleeping, drinking good beer, and eating okay food, David and Brody were finally in Munich, Germany.
