We were waiting at the JFK airport for our flight to Sweden when we were tapped on the shoulder to discover our dear friends from Centerville! How fun to reconnect at the airport. The story gets better - we were on the same flight because they had been bumped (sorry for them - yay for us). Then, we learned we were staying the same night at the same hotel in Sweden! We spent the evening together in Old Town in Stockholm, Sweden. We laughed as we have tried to get together and schedules haven't quite worked in our own town but across the world we were able to pull it off. Love them and what a fun way of connecting to start off our trip.
Funny note - just before we met up with them I realized I hadn't packed any make-up. What could I do but just not worry about it -- side benefit for not using a mirror, right! It was pretty nice - I may leave it home next trip :).
