When Travel Works

Wow, international travel is amazing. 7 hours ago we were on a sleety airport in Washington, DC and now I'm in Heathrow airport in England.

Everything about the flight was smooth - no delays, screaming babies, snoring seat mates, meal mix-ups or hold ups in customs.

My only complaint is that my work laptop lasted 3+ hours, so I spent the majority of the flight working instead of goofing off. Stupid extended battery, always making me productive when I don't want to be.

Now we just need to make it to the hotel. How hard can that be?

Here's the Before-During-After shots that pretty much sum up the flight:

Update: We made it to the hotel just fine. We had one of the chattiest cab drivers I can recall, which was pleasant. Apparently, we've come to London during the European Cup Football finals, or something like this. Maybe we'll get lucky and get to see a football riot or something.

Tally Ho!


  1. pretty cool plane pics. Weather looks a lot better in the air than on the ground.

    UEFA final is in May, but there may be some prelim matches going on there now.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Jordan.

    We were told Tuesday and Wednesday were the nights to find a pub and watch the telly.

    Should be interesting, regardless.


  3. Huh, looks like I missed you in London by 1 day. :-) Hope you have a good time!

  4. Crap!

    Next time, we'll have to coordinate our international travel.
