Please be careful coming back. I wish you well in getting back to the States safe and sound.
I think we will, but probably bored silly since at this point we cannot even bring a book on a plane....
Pimms = delicious! (We have a bottle here, for summertime Pimms emergencies.)
Pretty sights = good. I hope you're taking pictures!
Airport and security drama = bad. Good luck navigating to your European destinations.
...and keep enjoying your wonderful vacation; your posts are making me both envious and v. happy for you that it's proving such a worthy reward for surviving to August. :-)
You?! You're on the road all the time these days!
Ha! That's an exaggeration in my case. (More appropriate for J.) I've been travelling a lot this month, but the rest of the year stretches desolately ahead of me... so I think I can still be envious. :-D
(Also, not even a book?! Ouch. For your sake, I hope that changes soon...)
Good luck with the British airports. Yikes.
Yeah, we're sort of playing it by ear. Lovely to think about flying all the way back without the solace of a book....
You two were my first thought when I heard about the British airport problems. So glad you are having a good time and glad you're not stranded at the airport in all the craziness. Good luck.
We're supposed to fly on Saturday, but I am prepared to abandon plans before spending three days in an airport!
By the time we're headed back, thinks should be relatively settled down. I hope.
Good luck in the airports with all the new restrictions in place because of the foiled terrorist plot.
Yeah, we heard about that in bits and pieces while touring today, then read more fully about it this evening. Yeesh, but better that than news of a successful attack.
Oh lord, wherever you go here, we wear you out! As for no books on the plane etc...You'll at least be able to sit in silence at last. Nice, restful silence....
...until the bastard kid behind them starts screaming that he's bored . ;D

Thanks for cheering me up....
The flight was packed with screaming kids. Because they were bored, hungry, and tired from the many hours it took to get through the airport, poor things.
You have a point, but nice restful silence for the 9-hour flight home is *not* something I'm looking forward to!
If you would please please please call me as soon as you can, I would be very happy. There are things we need to discuss!
It would help considerably if you answered the phone when I call! I am in Germany now, and it's difficult to get phone access. I tried just a few minutes ago.
