4053.3 miles before we sleep

According to webflyer anyway.

I woke up an hour before the alarm went off and struggled with the urge to get up and do things, lots of things, things I have to do before I Fly To London Tonight! But in the end the sheer pleasure of lying prone in my comfy bed won out. I won’t lie prone again until I’ve traveled more than 4,000 miles crammed into a tiny stiff seat on a jet. The next time I lie my weary head down it will (thankfully) be on a plush pillow tomorrow night at the London Waldorf (courtesy of a huge number of Hilton points).  I think it will beat the  broken bunk beds in the hostel we stayed in on our first trip to London in 2001. And as Brian pointed out when I pleaded with him to put my 3 extra pairs of shoes in his larger bag, I’m not a backpacker any more. :)

I’ll try to post a dispatch within a day or so of arriving.  Until then – cheerio and a bientot!

  1. As I check the itinerary I notice it is only about 30 minutes b4 you leave so you must be about to board the plane. Let the worry begin! As a mother you never ever stop doing that, worrying that is. Whether your child is 3 or 30 something you always want to know they are safe.

  2. I checked the delta.com site this morning first thing and saw that your plane landed safely. Also, saw you called the Poppa’s phone at 5:30 while he was in the shower. Sorry we missed the call. Hope you are having a wonderful time!!!
