Transatlantic - A Full Day of Travel

The flight left Phoenix and flew 10 hours directly to London. I slept soundly for about 8 of those inflight hours. I landed at Heathrow midday, took the shuttle from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 and had a light lunch. 
I didn't shop but there were plenty of options.
Next leg is a British Airlines flight to Düsseldorf. This is a view before we left the ground. 
A little inflight snack in festive holiday shapes. 
Landing in Düsseldorf. 
My passport was stamped upon arrival and I had about an hour before my next flight. I saw a smoker's lounge sponsored by Camel, complete with a clear warning that smoking can kill you. Other than that, an interesting grab and go (or grab and sit) place. Nice airport. 
The next leg was in a smaller plane. I had to check my carry-on luggage plane side. We sat on the plane for awhile, something about traffic around Frankfurt.  

I think that I like this plane because it is red. 
The good news is that the lower altitude gives great photos. 
I had my first taste of the famous German Christmas cookies with ginger. 
We landed in Nuremberg to a scene straight out of Casablanca. 
My home for a few days in Old Town with NBF Melanie.
