We wanted to jot a quick post to let everyone know we made it to the states safely. We left for the Tel Aviv airport at 12:45 am on Thursday (Israel time) and arrived at our “summer home” in Orange City at 9 am on Friday (Israel time). We would love to say the trip home was uneventful, but we ran into a couple snags. At first Joanna wasn’t ticketed correctly in the system so we spent some time in Tel Aviv straightening out her ticket. In Frankfort we had a 1/2 hour flight delay due to mechanical problems. When we arrived in Chicago there was a delay in getting our bags off the plane, related to that mechanical problem, which made us miss our connecting flight to Omaha. Thankfully they were able to get us on the next flight. After 32 hours of travel, we are very thankful to be done with that part of our transition. Now we need to work on the jetlag.
