Five hours into the 8 ½ hour flight from Washington DC to Munich, Germany, I'm reminded of the downsides of travel. Specifically sleeping on an airplane. Or the lack of sleeping to be precise. I'm not sure if it's my long legs or my age. But I didn't sleep much. As the soreness in my legs slowly sharpens the excitement of going to Georgia dulls with it.
But thankfully I've done this a few times. I know that walking around a new place, hearing a new language, and drinking some coffee, definitely drinking some coffee, will renew my legs, mind, and excitement. #theothergeorgia #soworthit
All right, I have a challenge for all the students following my travels on spring break. In the picture below, explain why the flight map on the screen in the seat in front of me says Munchen. Click here and send me your answer. First correct student gets some Georgian candy when I return.
