The Long Journey

Filed under: General Blogging — dtrask @ 5:52 pm

Well, here I am in the last hour of my transatlantic journey. This is my first time over the big pond. It’s now midnight EDT, and lord knows what time zone I’m in at the moment. I haven’t slept a wink…I never can get comfortable enough. Oh well. Matt has slept most of the way. It’s been quite a day. My flight from Portland was delayed almost 45 minutes, thus by the time I got to Philly I had about 20 minutes to catch a flight at the other end of the airport. I took the shuttle, but even then I had to run at least a quarter of a mile or more. When I arrived at the gate they knew my name…I was the last passenger. Phew! I seriously doubt my checked bag made it. Luckily, there’s hardly anything in it. I have everything I really need in my carry-ons. I still have many hours left before I finally arrive in Seville. For now…Madrid beckons as we are now flying into the rising sun.

UPDATE: I’m here in Madrid and my bag made it!
