It was 4:40am and we were waiting for the Airport shuttle to take us to the Cologne Bonn airport, so we could board our flight back to England. I detest early morning flights. 😡 Whose brilliant idea was it to have flights at such ungodly hours, l wondered? So annoying!
There l stood with my daughter and best friend, waiting
for the bus. It was so cold this morning. Germany was definitely colder than the UK. It was a 30 minutes journey to the airport and all l could think of was getting onto the bus and out of the cold. Therefore, the bus couldn’t come quickly enough for
me. We shall miss my dear friend and her kids though. We had a great time at her home.
These thoughts were going through my mind when l overheard a conversation between two American women standing nearby. One was telling her friend that since they
do not check tickets, she won’t pay for the bus ride to the airport.
Her friend encouraged her, telling her that as long as she goes in through the back door of the bus, it should be OK. It was 4:46am so they were quite sure no one would be checking
tickets at that time. Her friend assured her she would not be caught. They looked quite young, possibly in their early 20s.
Hmmm...🤔 are they being smart
or a couple of dumb chicks?. Anyway, we shall soon find out because we would be traveling on the same Airport shuttle. This should be an interesting ride. We hugged my friend goodbye and got on the bus.
