Back in Tampa…

We departed from New York late (which reminded me of why I dislike returning through NY airports) due to ground-based airplane traffic gridlock at JFK, a slow boarding process, and a reconfiguration of runways (just as we were #1 for takeoff). All told, we landed in Tampa around 12:30am, reaching our home at approximately 1:40am. Both Libby and Emerson slept for the entire flight home… I napped for maybe an hour.

All things considered, it was a successful travel day, filled with both highs (e.g., the London cab driver, Emerson for the vast majority of the flight time) and lows (e.g., the usual JFK-related problems, including a deficient airport facility and larger than average percentage of rude/obnoxious/impatient fellow passengers—who were a special test of my patience on this day). Indeed, this was far from our worst experience in domestic or international travel, as we’d feared it might be.

Encouragement – for next summer’s overseas adventure with Emerson!

    It took us half as long to get from New York to DC as it did for us to get from Oslo to New York …. so, yeah, I hear you about the NY airport problems.
