So I’ve crossed the Atlantic and been back in the last week. I flew Delta, and realized on my way back that I have flown Delta exclusively for the last few years, though this was my first time using them internationally.
My flight out left at 7:30pm NY time and landed at 7am UK time. I can’t really sleep on planes, I don’t know why but I did attempt to give it my best try. In between tossing an lying in my row of empty seats? I have an entire 3 seat row to myself I knit. Veyla which had been on of the patterns I threw into my traveling pile just in case, which actually became very handy.
Granted I only finished one glove per flight, but had I forgone my sad attempt at sleep I may have gotten farther. I did pick up the buttons at Loop along with some other things that will get their own post in a bit. I also got farther on my mystery KAL where I am somewhere still on clue 1. but less than ten rows from the end as opposed to the original 40.
We landed early but there was just long enough for me to get through customs, and be a whopping 10 minutes early to my meeting in Ascot. I have to say the grounds were really lovely, even as I kept running into ground’s keepers getting ready for spring.
The path to the spa of all things.
Nature had clearly gotten a jump on the staff in some corners.
And the owls with eyes on my welcome letter at check-in. I met friends for dinner and drinks and had a great start to my Weds, in England.
