11:30 pm Thursday night. 3/4 packed. Exhausted. Luckily our flight doesn’t leave until 4:30 Friday afternoon. Alex and Tom are both sleeping on the bed next to me. Sofia has been sleeping since 8. Father Christmas has laid out gifts downstairs and gobbled down the M&M cookies Sofia left for him…one day early since we land in Switzerland at 6am Christmas Day.
Tomorrow we embark on a huge journey. Call us crazy but we are dragging these two kids around the world (Switzerland and Spain then on to few cities in the US). I am not sure how Tom convinced me this is a good idea. I think he sort of slipped it in there. Beg for forgiveness instead of ask for permission. Maybe a little insanity on my part. You all know us as travellers. Move me halfway around the world whilst pregnant and then don’t fly anywhere for ten months…I am ready to get on a plane!
So, tomorrow we will load the four of us, two car seats, a double pram, a baby bag, two backpacks, a large duffel bag, a very heavy and large roll aboard suitcase, and a smaller roll aboard carryon into a taxi to take us to the airport. Everyone keep fingers crossed that we have everything we need for a couple of days considering we are landing in Switzerland on Christmas and the following day is Sunday-nothing open. Send some positive thoughts our way that we will have the two best-behaved children in Business Class. Please let there be no cancellations or either issues along the way as well with our flights.
We will see some of you on our journey and everyone else will have to keep updated via this blog, Facebook or email.
Everyone have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
