|Stairs to Airbnb|
We finally arrived to the Airbnb, and our host was super friendly. We were in an extended part of the house -- it must of been an old loft, but renovated for guests. We had to climb the stairs, which was almost like climbing a ladder, to the loft. The loft had a bathroom with a shower, mini fridge, kitchen, tv, and dvd collection. It was a very unique set up.

After we were settled, we walked to a Burger place that was about a 25 minute walk away. Of course, it was closed when we got there, and it was only 5pm at night on a Friday. We went to a bakery next door that had hot dogs and pizza. We took our food to a park that we passed on the way to the burger place. We enjoyed the quiet park and ate our dinner. It began to sprinkle, so we went back to the Airbnb. We relaxed for the rest of the evening since we were going to leave a 5:30 am to head to the airport.
Since we were riding with American Airlines on the way back, we had to go through the security checkpoint, where we were asked what we did, why we were in Europe, where we work in the States, etc. It was a little odd, and by far the strictest security we came across. We were approved, and we caught out flight to Chicago!
The flight back to the States was really nice. We were in the back of the plane, so we had a lot of leg room. The movie selection was alright, but we had to wait for the movie to start, and we couldn't pause the movie. We eventually made it to Chicago, where the security checkpoint was once again really long. Luckily, our line moved pretty fast, and we made our connection to Phoenix.
I tried my best to not sleep on the way to Phoenix, but I did. After our 3 hour flight, we caught the Arizona Shuttle that drove us 2.5 hours up the mountain to Flagstaff.
Kodak was very excited to see us, and we quickly fell asleep. Getting back to Arizona Time wasn't that bad.
Overall, I had a great time abroad. I cannot wait to go back! Just need to save my money :)
