Berlin to Denver

Written by Human, Not by AI

Today I had to leave the beautiful city of Berlin to head back home from the Matrix Community Summit. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the city and at the summit.

Getting to the airport via the train was uneventful and my quick flight to Munich was fine as well. On the flight from Munich to Denver, the seat configuration was a 3-3-3 in economy, and I was in D (outside of the middle row). In a stroke of luck, the middle seat in the row was unoccupied, so I was able to put my backpack under the middle seat and have more legroom.

Despite having done this exact same flight a couple weeks ago when coming back from Lisbon, this flight felt much longer. It felt every bit like a ten hour flight.

Getting through customs was a breeze because I have Global Entry. It is so convenient to be able to skip all of the customs and immigration queues. And, it makes me feel superior to the other lowly travellers who have to wait in the long lines 😂

I’m going to look back fondly on my trip to Berlin, and I hope that I will see many of the people at the summit at another event in the future.
