We were in our hotel lobby at 5 AM, ready for our cab to the airport. We were fortunate; a large group had to leave at 3 AM! We had an easy flight from Porto to Madrid, and the passport control line was short. From Madrid, we had a direct flight to JFK. Although the line there was long, the reentry process was problem free. Our driver picked us up without too much trouble. Before long, we were safely back at home.
Many thanks for your comments and your interest in our trip. We are often asked where we are going next. We are not sure yet, but we hope that we will continue to travel in 2018. Wherever we go, Nick will enjoy taking photos and I’ll enjoy writing about our experiences.
