A Travel Adventure to Nuremberg

International Toy Fair in Nuremberg Germany runs from January 28th through February 2nd this year and the travel plans have been in place for a few weeks. Enter the weatherman and a prediction for massive amounts of snow and a blizzard to consume the northeastern US. Flight cancelled, flight rescheduled through Charlotte NC, train cancelled, second flight cancelled.

Ready to fly to Frankfurt Hmmm, where's all that snow? The predicted snow was a no-show.

As my good friend Marina says, sometimes it's not worth fighting against the weather! So slide everything forward two days and change every reservation and every appointment. Now departing  the 29th via an Amtrak train from Lancaster connecting to a Philly SEPTA train, a direct flight to Frankfurt, a Deutsche Bahn ICE train to Nuremberg connecting to a local train to Erlangen; my four day home in Germany.

Then from Erlangen back to Nuremberg for the International Toy Fair, Spielwarenmesse. It's gray, cold, and snowy outside, but sure to be colorful and bright, warm, and dry inside! A post from the Kathe Kruse booth coming soon...
