We Are Home!

Day 92, Monday, November 25th, 2019

We arrived home about 9:00 pm. I only got a couple hours sleep last night…no idea why that always happens right before a flight… so I was very tired before we even started our trip home.

We fly to Toronto on the 787 Dreamliner and we are both impressed with this plane.  It is quieter than other planes and the cabin feels more open, less claustrophobic.  We are also told that they use less recycled air and more fresh oxygen, which makes passengers feel better during a long flight.  We were very lucky and had an extra seat between us on both legs of our trip home.  I was able to lie down and slept on and off for about three hours on the flight form Vienna to Toronto.  I actually felt better the we landed after a nine hour flight than when we boarded the plane!  We had a four hour layover in Toronto and then we board for the last flight home.  Here is our next plane, Air Canada Rouge.  Not as big or as comfortable as the Dreamliner, but it is only a four and a half hour flight.  We met this young lady on the flight.  Alexa Kubicki is a 16 year old boxer who was returning home from a three month competition tour. She won 4 international Tournaments and received 4 Best Female Fighter Awards over the last 4 months.  Next year she will compete in the World Boxing Championship and she is aiming to compete in the 2024 Olympics.  I told her I would look for her in 2024. I tried drawing but was so tired that I had problems with proportion.  Not the best likenesses.  I did manage to get another couple hours sleep on this flight so that helped.It was a very long day, more than 24 hours since we left our apartment in Vienna until we walked through the door at home.  First thing we notice is how big our house seemed after all the little apartments we stayed in!   It was a really good holiday but it is good to be home.  This blog is my travel journal of our trip, and I know sometimes the posts were long…so thanks for following along and a special thank you to those who wrote comments or liked a post.

  1. Glad to hear you have made it home safely. We enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your photos. The long flights are hard, but only one day of your life. Good when it’s over. We fly to Egypt tomorrow night on the only flight out of Malta that leaves at 11 pm and arrives at 2:30 am in Cairo. We will have to wait at our hotel until they let us check in. No sleeping for us! Then, The Nile!!
