It’s official. The last of the travel plans related to our cruise this summer are cancelled. Continue reading “Official”
We get in to JFK late in the evening. Observations: Continue reading “And home again”
(But we won’t actually see Rome, because we’re running from port to airport for our flight.)
We get off the ship without a hitch. We meet our airport transport, no issues. We arrive early to the airport, and stand in the TAP line.
And there is a problem. Continue reading “Disembark in Rome and Onward. Maybe.”
Welcome to what I hope, going in, will be the low point of the trip. 😄
(Narrator voiceover: it wouldn’t be.)
I remember midday to check in for my morning flight, and that’s when I discover my flight has changed. Gee AA, maybe I’d have wanted to know that?
But actually, the later flight, in this case, will mean smoother, less traffic-heavy airport trips (thanks Dad). It will also mean my ridiculous layover in JFK will be … every so slightly shorter. No, still ridiculous. But no time stress is a good thing.
I stick around the airport once I am dropped off, although I have all this time – I would rather settle in and know I’m where I need to be than be stressed later trying to get back on time. There’s free WiFi, in 3 hour intervals. Even after G leaves, I’m there long enough that I need to renew that twice. Continue reading “The Long Trip Home”
I set up my flights with Princess EZ-Air. I didn’t want to be worried about flights. My local airport is great if you’re flying domestically but it’s lacking options for international carriers. I could fly out of a different airport but that’s a bit of a logistical issue in the coming and going. Continue reading “Trek to Singapore & Sail Away”
My first trip to Asia came via a cruise over the Christmas holidays, courtesy of Princess Cruise Line.
Getting there would take 30+ hours, however, with connections through New York and
South Korea Dubai, Continue reading “First post of the year, for first visit to Asia”
No one oversleeps. No issues at TSA (other than one item forgotten in the bottom of a bag, but such is life). No delays on our flights. No problems finding food to keep us afloat at our connection point. No turbulence. Continue reading “In which we fly home”
My week leading up to departure – Fine. Just long. The days trying to clear my desk, pulling all-nighters to not hand off too much to my team – Fine. Just long. The connecting flight to Denver, the layover at DEN, the trek to a bed in the small hours in Salt Lake City. All: Fine. Just long.
It’s a theme. But eventually we all fall into bed, and eventually settle enough to sleep.
Fine. Not quite long enough.
But away we go!
