No Longer Berlin, But Not Yet Iola

More Than Half Way, But Not Home Yet

Well, here I am waking up in a hotel in Schiller Park, 15 minutes drive from Chicago's O'Hare International airport. Not exactly where I wanted to be this morning, but that is the realitiy of mid-western travel in the winter months. Our flight to Appleton scheduled for yesterday afternoon, was canceled due to fog, snow and rain, so my traveling partners and I were forced to add one more day onto our trip and wait one more day for the comfort of our own beds and the loving hugs of our families.


Friend and fellow blogger Dave Harper, has been stranded in Chiacgo at O'Hare three times in the past two months, but we are hopeful that our rescheduled flight set for 10am this morning will leave on time without incident. This would be a magnificent stroke of luck for us, as snow is predicted for the Iola area over the next tree days totaling about 10 inches, which might hold the potential for delaying us even more, if we do not get to fly out today.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my postings from the World Money Fair in Berlin, as much as I have enjoyed living them. Over the next few weeks, please stop back at Big Ideas, little worldand enjoy further observations about the show, travel, comparisons to the U.S. and more detailed commentary on the strengths and weakness of the current coin market.
