Home Again*

home-sweet-home(Partial)
Yes, we are finally back in Roseville.  We estimate that from the moment we entered CDG Airport to stepping out of SFO it was a total of 40 hours.  That is a lot of time without fresh air and sunlight.  There was nine hour time change and an 11 hour flight included in the total and of our course our unexpected sleeping arrangements. We talked to a guy that said we were now “real world travelers” because of our night’s…

Before getting in a non-moving packed queue (line) I went up to a woman and asked where we should go…she said “do you want to rebook?” No shit…is what I thought. But didn’t say…I am representing our country of…

WTF*

I am tired. No really, not just pooped…but done. The bike trip has taken a toll I was un-expecting. I am so tired I can barely rest. So, I am pissed off at myself and at the bike company. It is not my fault or theirs either, but, as I start to look at the maps…they are purposely putting us on long paths to our destinations. Not that it is a bad thing…but there are no options for shortcuts. It…
