re: European airports for flight connections - Spirit of Dunson
I am in FRA about twice a month and think it is a great airport. Decent restaurants, good lounges, and although big, it is easy to get around. However I still would go through AMS first. AMS > FRA > others....

If you ask someone how they are doing, they may talk about their back pains and sinus issues. Hotel breakfasts are great - lots of cold cuts, yogurt, granola, sausages, p...

If you don't see anything during your work days, you should plan to spend a few days in Berlin. Lots of sights if you are into history. Afterwards you could go east to Poland, south to Prague, west to Hamburg, or southeast to Munich. All are just 3-4 hours by train. For business... are they cust...

Just booked a place in Copenhagen for 5 days in April. Planning a day in Malmø, a day at the Louisiana museum maybe a day at Tripoli, and 2-3 days in Copenhagen. Does that seem about right or too much/little time in some places? I'll have 3 kids with me so that needs to be part of the equation...
