I plan on making entries into the journal from the travel journals that we wrote on our trip. This hopefully will keep the entries fresh and spontaneous (although technically late entries hehehe). I am pairing photos with the journal entries, but unfortunately they have to be small or they are really bad quality. To see the photos larger (and good quality), click on the view all button in the trip photo album above.
Day 1 is the easy entry. Travel day. The only comments I can muster about travel day are.....the flight is too long, the seats are too small, team VT gets real tired (code word for crabby)........but we do it anyway for the adventure of a lifetime.
The flight took us around 14 to 16 hours with our layover in Philly. It was a very long day. The first flight was okay seat and leg room wise. The flight between Philly and Madrid made P look like he was in a sardine can. We watched around 4 movies so the flight went by pretty quickly.
Customs at the airport didn't take too long either even though about 150 people got in the same time as us.
