Privyet my friends! Violetka and I are on our way to Ukraine! We started this morning in Wisconsin. Here's the gate agent scanning our tickets. We're going with my moms, but we are sitting together the whole way, pretending we're on our own!
I let Violet have the window seat. In return, she's letting me use her iPod. Thanks Violet!
To get to Kiev, we had to take three different planes. Our first stop was in Minneapolis. From Minneapolis we are going to Amsterdam. From there, we will go to Kiev and then take a bus across Ukraine to Kharkov, the city my family lives in. The Minneapolis/St. Paul airport has this awesome moose ride-on!
Here we are on a map that shows Minneapolis and St. Paul. We have a long way to go, but we're looking forward to it. Only a few more minutes before we board our flight to Amsterdam, which will be our longest.
Before I go, check out this photo of me and Violet this morning. That's right- the pilot let us sit in the cockpit! Wow! It was really cool. I think it's a good sign that our adventure started out with such a nice pilot. The next time I write, I'll be in Europe!
Have you ever taken a plane flight? Where did you go?
