“I don’t think we’re in New Zealand anymore Toto.”
Yep, my exact thoughts.
As soon as we landed in LA, a rush of adrenaline hit. Yes, half of it was the jet lag and strong coffee combination, but the other half was just REAL.
Let me tell you our travel plans, just humor.
4 hour drive from Taupo to Auckland, wait 5 hours for our flight. Then 12 hour flight from Auckland to LA. Layover was suppose to be only 2 hours but then flight was delayed last minute. Left LA at 8pm and got into DFW at 1am. Construction on the highway so didn’t get to my parents house till 2am. Woke up at 7am (darn you body!!!), laundry, then drove another 3 1/2 hours to Austin. PHEW!!!!
Customs were probably the worst part, thankfully they did not take away our beloved marmite! ha!
Thank you Deb for rescuing us from the LAX airport. And thank you for being YOU! We needed someone as special as you to ease us back into US society.
Speaking of society, jet lag, and homecomings… Here’s a little clip of my first day back in the good old US of A!
And thank GOODNESS these treats were waiting for us when we arrived home. It was like a Christmas for the GF blogger. YAHOO!
Note: Home right now is a PO box. gotta love the nomad style.
ahhh, the brands I love!
So comforting. yes!
But the best thing… the very BEST thing… was REUNITING our CHILD.
So here’s to jet lag, to long layovers with friends, to reuniting with fur babies/friends/family, to old favorites, and to continuing this journey
What’s your best homecoming memory?
The RACE recap by the Hubs is up. I think it sums it up just right.
