Excerpt of article text...

Last year you'll remember I attended the MBS Xojo Conference in Berlin. It was my first time overseas since I was a teenager and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed traveling around Europe after the conference. This year I wanted to come to the conference again and stay even longer, so I booked an Airbnb in France for a few weeks.

The schedule was tight: I just finished the September issue of xDev and I was on a plane. I flew from Portland (Oregon) to Vancouver (Canada). The flight took less time than the drive to the airport!

In Vancouver, I met a nice couple from Eugene, Oregon who were on my flight from Portland and were also going to Munich. We helped each other find our gate. Later, on the plane, they had the seats right in front of me!

With the time difference, it was nearly 24 hours before I arrived in Munich. I left Portland at 3 p.m and arrived in Munich about one o'clock (see Figure 1). The hotel's check-in time was three, so I wasn't in a big hurry. I figured two hours gave me plenty of time.

Well, the first thing I discovered is that the Munich airport is very confusing. There are signs, but they don't seem to mean anything. They certainly don't explain or tell you where to go. For instance, I thought I should be heading to customs or "passport control," which seems to be the main destination when arriving in a foreign country. At Munich, there were only signs for the exit or baggage claim, so I followed those.

When I saw passport control on one side and "exit" the other way, I was confused. I could see more "exit" signs on the other side of the passport control, so I wondered if there was more than one. I went through that passport control only to be told I was in the wrong place: this was only for people going on to other flights. Since Munich was my final destination, I needed to use a different passport control. Yeah, that was clear.
