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?

I'm on Top of the World

Our new home is built on a steep hillside. The road out of the development has an 11% grade.... going up from the house... and going down. ...
