“Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” Revisited

January 26, 2012
From Judy Raymond

Rich left Houston early, only to sit on the tarmac for two hours because of the weather.  He had no problem in Newark and got over the Atlantic as expected. He even made the short connection to Adria Air in Munich.  There is too much snow in Pristina, however, so his plane landed in Skopje, Macedonia, and then he had a long bus ride to Pristina.  Unfortunately, he lost his US driver’s license at border customs.

Now for the good news:  he has all 150 lbs of luggage to haul in the snow, and so far he has been able to send those expensive international text messages to me.  However, his phone has lost its charge, so we won’t know if it works in Pristina until he can recharge it. He was still en route as of 6:14 am CST this morning.

He is certainly going to need a little nap once he makes it to the hotel today!

The Journey Begins

January 24, 2012

The journey has begun: I landed at Hobby International Airport in Houston, TX this afternoon.  I will spend the night with my daughter Anna and her family.  The overseas leg of the journey begins about mid-day tomorrow.
