Home Again

Here I sit....  in my living room. The scenery is quite different to that I awoke to yesterday. It is amazing how air travel can magically whisk you from one place to another.... so very different.

But, that 'whisking' isn't all that magical, really.....
  • The alarm clock rang at 6:30 AM for a 7:15 AM departure....
  • A lovely 45 minute drive to the airport - in the rain.
  • (Oh, so lucky we didn't have to take the trains and the bus!)
  • 18 minutes to get through security (and just why did we need 2 1/2 hours?!)
  • 2 1/2 hours to wait.
  • waiting in line to board.
  • 78 minute flight to second airport.
  • waiting to get off the plane.
  • 45 minute wait.
  • waiting in line to board.
  • 9 hours 38 minutes to fly across the ocean.
  • waiting to get off the plane.
  • 45 minutes in customs.
  • 15 minutes in line for luggage problems.
  • 35 minute wait for final plane.
  • waiting in line to board.
  • 3 hours 25 minutes (plus an additional 35 minutes) for last flight.
  • waiting to get off the plane.
  • 20 minutes waiting for luggage ...
  • and filing a claim for a lost suitcase
  • 24 minutes waiting for our friend
  • 38 minutes to home. 
All in all... 25 hours and a bit of travel time. Not exactly "whisking"!
So, when do you think time travel will be a reality?!

I'll be writing more...
and sharing pictures...
when I catch up to this time zone!


  1. You must be exhausted..glad to hear you are home safe and sound. I bet Tucker and Gypsy were happy to see you! :)

  2. Sounds very exhausting. Sure hope your luggage finds it's way home


What thoughts do you have?

Twelve Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas dear Santa gave to me: an airplane flight from sea to shining sea. View from the bedroom upon arising...
