So I am now on the flip side of my post from a bit over two weeks back, sitting in Frankfort waiting for my flight to Chicago. As always the way home seems slower than the way there and this time it is compounded by having a very early first flight from Jerez to Madrid and a total of three flights. At least the next flight is the last, the longest, but it also should be the most comfortable. The challenge is staying awake enough so that I can actually sleep when I get home tonight.

In some ways I am ready to be back home, even if it is only for one day, not quite ready to face the fact that work awaits me again on Monday with it’s normal weekly jaunts between Chicago and Calgary. At least there is a 3 day weekend in a couple of weeks to help remind me what it is like to relax.

Stay tuned over the weeks to come as I actually write up the details of our adventures in addition to the pictures I have already shared on Facebook.
