Our trip in bullet points.

Highlights from the trip:

  • My husband yelled at a rock star while in Colombia. Turns out this rock star was very nice and apologetic. Ooops.
  • We did not get to eat at the Dunkin Donuts in Lima or Bogota. We quite literally ran through both airports and almost missed both planes.
  • Brian forgot our passports, tickets, baggage claim stickers, social security cards and who knows what else, at a security check point in Colombia. This involved more running.
  • Elena is terrified of airport bathrooms, the flushing scares her.
  • My girls were both angels and very well behaved on the trip...but still...we're all tired.
  • Airplanes give you crumbs and call it a sandwich.
  • My sister flew with us and was more than willing to help with the girls, but they decided they only wanted to be with me.
  • I'm tired.
  • We lost our luggage, but got it back the day after.
  • So far we have eaten at Taco Bell and Five Guys. I would now like to eat something I don't have to unwrap to get to. Real food, please.

I'll be back to my regular blogging soon. But one more thing: If you ever need to get any information out of anyone just put them on a 18 hour trip with two toddlers. They will tell you anything just to get out of that situation.

Glad you made it! Hate you had so much running. Our theory is always, "Push through. Do whatcha gotta do. Survive. Sleep later." Not the funnest way to travel, but at least our girls aren't toddlers anymore. Man. I feel for you. Hope you sleep it all off!!! :)

I want to hear more about the yelling at the rock star incident.

If your marriage survived the forgetting the passports in COLOMBIA (horrible airport, at least it used to be), then I'd say you'll make it for the long haul ;)

Ohhhhh, the stories I could tell.

Oh I so understand! I hope you get your real meal soon...

in the early 90's I flew back to the states(16 hour flight with a ten month old, and 19 month old and a four year old! We had THE ONLY kids on the flight and I know that we ruined the first leg of many a German's vacation to the states!

It was smoking on planes then and by the last time the smoking light went on EVERYONE but Bill and I went to the back to smoke! Toddlers seem to have a way on people!

I pray that your safe in all your travels this year.
