Rhode Island to Iceland

Our trip to Boston was a breeze, going against the traffic all the way. We ate at Jeveli’s in East Boston and had an excellent lobster pie for $16 versus our $25 cold lobster sandwich at Evelyn’s. We returned the car, took the express bus to terminal E and breezed through check-in taking us a total of about 5 minutes. No one was in line for a Wednesday-night middle-September flight to Iceland; beautiful.

We spent the next four and ½ hours in flight from Boston to this cold, rainy, grey place. Ed & Alicia and I each slept for about 3 hours, but Kat couldn't get comfy in these seats. I’m not suggesting I was comfy, but it was close enough. The alcohol might have helped.

The airport is modern and compact and they boarded us on time, so the only thing left to do was to relax while we awaited the final passengers to board, and then we were on our way to France.

It’s now 12:30 pm (Thursday), and we are making our descent into Charles DeGaulle in Roissy just outside Paris. Flying into the sunrise is a treat as is the first sight of the coast of France after the long ocean crossing. The sky is clear and the captain said it was 15° C. Gorgeous day. Kat finally got a little sleep as we had no one between us.

Our adventure continues.
