As we prepare to depart in just a few short days, I thought I would provide some links and tips to help you all prepare.
First, travel guru Rick Steves' packing list
is an interesting article published just yesterday in the Seattle Times about parents compounding homesickness by "tech hovering". Not that any of our groups parents would do this of course, but still an interesting read.
Here is a site devoted to tracking flights. Follow us all the way to Hamburg via Flight Aware
. The Airport code for Seattle is KSEA, Hamburg is HAM, Reykjavik is BIKF.
If you would like to actually listen to the air traffic control tower feeds online, you can do so HERE
via Live ATC. The airport codes are the same.
One link I know the kids will be interested in is the Iceland Air in flight entertainment options. Each seat will have its own tv with its own options so that you can choose what you would like to watch. The available movies and television shows can be viewed HERE
While in Iceland, we'll be relaxing at the Blue Lagoon. Here
is a live streaming web cam from the Blue Lagoon.
is the link to the city of Hamburg's official site with a plethora of useful links, pictures and information.
I hope you are all prepared and getting excited for what promises to be a fun and memorable trip!
