My wife and I will be traveling to Europe over the holiday break 2016.
The general planning wasn’t to difficult since our daughter in-law started the process and both of them are making the agenda for our visit. But let me take a moment and share how we organized our departure.
Sara (daughter in-law) booked our flight from Kansas to Germany. But we learned there was going to be a problem when we arrived at JRK airport. We needed to get our luggage and travel to a different airport and catch our flight overseas. This had to be done within and hour. So, Pam (my wife) made a call to the airline to make a change. It took about 20 minutes and she felt the lady was extremely helpful and nice. The following month we received our Cable bill (our phone is connected to the Cable bill) and saw our bill had jumped by 120.00. After thinking that I had watched a bunch of movies on demand she realized the increase was in our phone bill. Upon additional research she learned that 20 minute call was overseas and the change in our flight cost us an additional 120.00.
The new flight plan has us leaving KCI on December 17th at 7:30 a.m. We will arrive in Atlanta around 10 a.m. Then we will board a plane at 5 pm to cross the pond. That plane is scheduled to arrive in German at 8:30 a.m.   If you do the math Germany is 7 hours ahead of us here in Topeka. That means when we arrive at 10:00 a.m German time 
it’s 3 a.m. our time Yes, we will be loosing 7 hours crossing the Atlantic.
I will write more about about the agenda in Germany and Italy later.
