Hi, I went to Europe 2 weeks trip, now fighting to jet lag!!
This trip is 4th time in this year for me. It's special year?!
1st day 17th/Oct
Leave from Japan to Germany first.
I took bus for Narita airport, usually 2.5hours running, but over 3hours due to heavy traffic jam by heavy accident....no....
I hope nobody had heavy injury....
Arrive Narita to boarding was very smooth, no trouble and had very relax time in JAL lounge...little bit too much drunk.
Flight was 12hours...too long. Watch two movies...had enough time bored...feel pain on my back...
After 12hours, arrived Frankfurt main airport safely. However I had to move to Baden Baden by DB train.
I took ICE at airport, 2 times transfer at Mannheim and Karlsruhe.
First ICE was on time operation, but next ICE was 20 minutes delay....I think I could not take next IC at Karlsruhe station... But IC also 30minutes delay. I was lucky?!
Finally, I arrived hotel in Baden Baden. Eat some food and drink beer. 24hours from leave my house... Tired!!! Go to sleep!!
Next morning, I surprised I saw view from hotel window. This hotel is in grape plant!!!!
Meeting in component supplier.
It wad completely "away game"!! Because meeting with 6 German guys!! I am alone!! Wahaha.
But face to face meeting had so high efficiency!! Could see faces directly, and could use white board and drawings!!
Meeting again same company for more detail technical discussion, another company guys joined. Very interested!!
After meeting, I moved to Aachen city with another company guys by car. 400km moving. We had two times heavy traffic jam.......
Aachen city is beautiful city.

Meeting all day. After that I moved to Dusseldorf by DB regional train. I will join to my boss who will arrive Dusseldorf on night.
In evening, every Japanese restraint was very clowd!!....we had dinner in Nikko hotel....
Next morning, we have to leave this city heading for Bergium!!
To be continued.
