Finally made it to Toronto!

>> Saturday, June 28, 2008

Wow. Think of the worst flight you were ever on and I had a much worse flight yesterday. It didn't start out well since because of mechanical problems the flight was an hour delayed. It should have been a warning because an hour into our flight everyone was woken up by the pilot announcing we were making a landing in Great Falls, Montana since one engine has run out of oil and may stop. Then we were stuck in the plane with a 1 1/2 year old for over 3 hours since there was nobody at the airport to let us out! The pilot said they were going to fly a plane in from SLC, but that would be a few hours before anything would happen. We finally got let out, but then the SLC flight was also delayed for an hour! We also missed our connection in Cincinnati and couldn't get on the next one since it was full. A lot of the passengers were yelling, swearing, (one lady was sobbing). We finally got on another flight that took us to Toronto at 6pm the next day, almost 24 hours after we left Seattle.

I'm not looking forward to the plane ride to Budapest tomorrow, but will be glad when I can kick back and relax.

It's been great spending time with my parents and enjoying my mom's cooking, I almost have my sleep caught up for the trip (almost).

Next post will be from Europe,

Last minute packing

>> Thursday, June 26, 2008

Leavin' on a jet plane tonight...

So I'm sort of packed, will hopefully keep up the blog while I am in Toronto and then onwards to Europe. I still can't believe I have a near 24 hour journey to Budapest! We leave Burlington by car, drive to Buffalo, then fly with 2 connections to Budapest and arrive 21 hours later. That's what happens when you book using Cheapoair.com (yes, that is the actual name).

My poor parents hopefully won't expect many pictures of Landon in the first couple of days. He face-planted on some hard ground yesterday and has a huge bruise on his forehead and a cut on his nose. Murphy's Law this happens the day before we leave.

Looking forward to some time off!

First "Letters from Bilbao" entry

>> Friday, June 13, 2008

Letters from Bilbao? Ok, it's a play on words from a great song from a great band called The Lowest of the Low.

Not sure if I will be keeping this blog permanent, but will hopefully keep it up for my upcoming trip to Eastern Europe. The trip is barely two weeks long, but with my busy schedule lately two weeks seems like an eternity.

Plan is to fly to Toronto with Chantelle and Landon, drop Landon off with my parents, backpack Eastern Europe with Chantelle, come back to Toronto for some reuniting of friends and family then back to Seattle. Our plans in Europe are tentatively Budapest -> Bratislava -> Krakow -> Budapest.

Packing will begin next week, the following week will be off!
