Swedish Surprise:When I first saw the green forests and sunlit canals of Sweden from the plane's window, I didn't expect to feel like I was coming home. The well-kept farms and the lush greenery look like Minnesota from the air.
After we landed I showed my passport to a customs clerk who greeted me with a friendly "Ahhay." A few minutes later I watched a mommy at the baggage claim gave her boy a ride after a stranger lifted him onto the luggage cart. I'm surprised to find that Sweden fells like home!
Two Math Problems:1. We flew on British Airways from Denver to London and then from London to Gothenburg. The flight to London was 9 hours, We spent 5 hours at the Heathrow Airport in London and then took a 2 hour flight to Gothenburg. How many hours did we spend in an airplane?
2. Our flight took off at 7:30 pm Tuesday, June 13 Mountain Daylight time and landed in London at 11:30 British Summer time. The next flight departed London at 16:15 British Summer Time and landed in Gothenburg at 7:20 Central European Summer Time. What was our total travel time from Denver to Gothenburg? How many time zones did we pass?
Airplane Food and Swedish MeatballsWhen we took our seats a flight attendant asked if we would like sparkling water, still water, or white wine. Have you ever drunk still water? What about sparkling water?
After we patted our faces with warm lavender scented cloths, we looked at the menu. When we had been flying for an hour we were served our meal. Which one would you choose?
About two hours before we landed our flight attendant bought a breakfast of yogurt, a granola bar, and coffee.
What kind of food would you serve passengers on a long flight?
They were served with lingonberries, thinly sliced cucumber, and a swirl of whipped potatoes. Delicious!!
How much did the meal cost in dollars (USD)?
