It’s been almost one month since our last post on Auckland New Zealand and a busy month it has been. We left Melbourne on 18 December flying home to Boston by way of Hong Kong and experienced our first real travel misadventures of this now almost three year odyssey. Our flight out of Melbourne was delayed just under three hours causing us to miss our connecting flight to Boston by a few minutes. Our choices were to layover in a Hong Kong airport hotel for 24 hours or fly into JFK and drive home to Boston. We opted for the scramble to make the JFK flight and arrived in NYC just before midnight, still on the 18th of December even though we had been traveling for 30 hours. We rented a car and Jim drove us home as he had slept for most of the long flight and was still on Melbourne time. We arrived at Peggy Scott’s home in Boston just before 5am with one piece of luggage still in Hong Kong. We had a busy but very enjoyable three weeks stateside and arrived in Sevilla España on 10 January. We may write another blog about the three week holiday at home.
Sevilla has absolutely captured our hearts in the first 36 hours. We are really looking forward to exploring this small city quite thoroughly in the next two months.
