In 2 weeks, I’ll leave on my 10th trip. I live on the east coast of the US, and usually travel through Amsterdam (although we’ve gone through both London and Dubai in the past). Total travel time? About 29 hours. EACH WAY.

Heathrow terminal 5

Cool cars for raffle in Heathrow – we didn’t win one.

Really really really long flights.

International flying fun

Have they invented a transporter yet? ‘Cause this is just wayyy too much fun.

Entebbe Airport Uganda

Entebbe airport, waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

International travel

I think we lost 3 or 4 of these bags and got them on day 2.

Airport eating

Eating overpriced food in the airport is always a treat.

Dubai airport shopping

Yes, you can buy this in the Dubai airport. We’re not sure if it comes with an extra seat on the plane or not.

Jet lag…

Schipol Amsterdam

The parade of weary passengers at Schipol, after the overnight flight from Entebbe.

I know, it’s hard to stand all the glamour.
