Tuesday morning I woke up at 2:30 am, stumbled downstairs (actually I took the elevator) in this hotel in Bucharest, Romania.
We had a flight at 6:05 am from Bucharest to Frankfurt, Germany. We then waited a few hours at the Frankfurt airport, where we waited, receiving multiple texts announcing flight delays and gate changes. (It's a good think I had my phone with me.)
The flight from Frankfort to Newark, New Jersey was eight and a half hours long. I slept through part of it, but not enough. When we arrived in Newark we had to go through a series of lines, having our passports and bags checked, then going through customs and finally the security line. By then, I was feeling the lack of sleep as well as the meds I had taken to try to sleep.
In Newark, we waited. And waited. And waited. Our flight finally took off, four hours late. Two hours after that we were finally home. I tried to watch the season finale of "Justified" but slept through the whole thing. I slept all night and here I am!
The journey home wasn't so much fun, but the trip itself was wonderful! As soon as I have a chance to unpack my camera and find the proper cord, I will upload my photos and show you some highlights. In the meantime another cup of coffee is in order!
