Airport Story #1

You knew it was coming:
the start of the Christmas travel season...
and my airport stories.
I decided to number this one, because I have this feeling that there may be more than one!

We were set to leave today, Tuesday at 9:30 am. We were connecting in Istanbul and then onto London. We had lovely plans to spend the evening in London riding the London Eye


and then off to watch The Lion King musical. Then our travels would continue the following morning through JFK and finally into Pittsburgh.
Well, as of going to sleep last night, (Monday), the flight was already delayed, but only by a couple of hours, still allowing us time to make the connection. Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning to check on the estimated departure, it is delayed even further.
We will miss our connection to London.
There is another flight leaving Istanbul later, but I fear that we may miss that one also. Let's try to keep positive thoughts going so that we make that flight!
At least then we may still get to take the children on the Eye..

The best laid plans.....

It can be a real adventure traveling this time of year. Hang in there. Hope the kids get to ride the 'eye'. There's one almost as big at Navy Pier in Chicago that I rode on, and it was very cool!

Happy Trails!
