Today I had a long travel day getting from California to Germany. I arrived at my hotel about 20 hours later than the time I left home.
Above is not what you want to see when you are hauling all you bags. However, the down escalator was going up, so it worked out. If not there was an elevator.
Luckily I did not have too long to wait and I was on my way toward Jena.
I transferred to a Regional train in Erfurt and then it was on to Jena. This is the first station that we stopped at in Jena, but not the one I needed. However, my station was less than 10 minutes down the track and I was soon waiting for the street train to get to my hotel.
In any case, the food was good, but expensive.
Nor for some sleep and to try and shake the jet lag.
