Today has been a very long day as I traveled from QYG to SFO.

qyg, german rail, goschwitz, trainsQYG is the code for German Rail. For more details see SFO – QYG.

I started my day early at the Goschwitz train station in Jena, Germany.

clifford and carry onHere my bags are waiting in the cold morning air.  I was actually able to take a later than expected train this morning as my flight was delayed. This worked out good as I only had to make one train change instead of two.

erfurt germany, train stationI changed from a regional train to an ICE at Erfurt, Germany. Here you can see that it is much lighter.

ICE, Fernbahnhof, Frankfurt Airport Train StationHere is the train at the Frankfurt Airport rail station. It is really nice that the train station is at the airport. It is then only a long walk to check-in and get to my gate.

We finally took off about two hours later than scheduled.

SFO, Christmas, Lights, WreathsAfter a long flight I finally landed at SFO and had a long wait for the parking shuttle. It was dark by the time I headed toward home. It was a tiring drive and I was glad to finally make it home.

Now for some real sleep.

  1. I have been at the airport rail station in 1980 summer to work across the country building a church. We spent most of the day by rail traveling. Loved it as an American missionary to spend 2 weeks knowing the people and the city of Freiburg I’m Breisgau.
