Hey guys,

I just wanted to give you all an update. Yesterday I landed in Hamburg after a layover in Cologne.  By the way I totally got lost in that airport! There are apparently two Eurowings check in spots one for international and one for domestic flights and they are on opposite sides of the airport, and because I booked my flights separately I had to get my checked bags and re-check them in and I got stopped by undercover criminal customs police when I had less than an hour to get to my next flight… Needless to say I was stressing that I would have missed my flight! Thankfully I didn’t and everything worked out, but I was extremely nervous that I wouldn’t make it.

So far I’ve had amazing time so far in Hamburg visiting friends! Hamburg really does feel like a second home.  Today we visited the Christmas Markets, which were spectacular, and Going into the city today I rode on a Christmas Train! (I know that sounds crazy, but it was a legit Christmas train! I’ll explain more later!).  I’ll post more details on the Christmas market later as well, but in the meantime if you want real-time updates check out my Instagram Story @dominiquealtif!

I hope you all are enjoying the holidays with the people you love most.
