|The trip home|

Well the engineering planning meeting was done and it was time to head home. The trip would take me from Cincinatti to Dayton to Dallas (Texas) to Los Angeles to Sydney to Canberra. As usual we're talking about long than a days worth of travel and things usually go wrong.
This trip was no exception. When I arrived in Dallas, my first visit to Texas, I was surprised by how cool their airport is - very well designed I think. However, the plane we were going to leave on broke, so we were stuck there for an extra two hours. That was okay, I had five hours stop over time in LA anyway - so that was reduced to 3 hours when we finally got going. 25 people were left behind in Texas because several earlier flights were cancelled as well. Luckily, they found a spare plane to put us on and we were underway.
The rest of the trip went smoothly. I think perhaps I'm not cursed when it comes to travel.. i just have too many moving parts in my travel plans.. too many connections, too many things can (and do) go wrong.
I'm back home now, fighting off the jetlag.
