“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu

October 18, 2014

It’s nine pm here in Lisbon, Portugal and four pm back home in Connecticut.  Right now I can’t do the math in my head so I may be wrong – bottom line, I have been awake with just a short restless nap since yesterday six am.  Now, I don’t really want you to feel sorry for me, as I made it successfully to Lisbon and zoned out tired.  Probably not the best time to write a post but here you go.  This was our view as we left JFK airport in New York  last evening.

The plane bumped though the next several hours until we landed in Paris to catch our next flight two hours later to Lisbon, Portugal.

Paris from the air after a sleepless night.

After successfully getting our luggage and meeting the driver we arrived at the hotel to check in, albeit before the room was ready so off to the bar to get a glass of local wine.  Then to the room for a brief nap and shower.

Finally we met with our tour guide for drinks in his room , which they upgraded him to the presidential suite, then off to a long drawn out info session on our upcoming days followed by a burger in the hotel bar.  Not very exciting but it got us here safely.  Be well.   In conclusion for this tiring travel day I end with the quote  from Alton Brown.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.”
