[This is the post that started it all…my very first trip overseas! I sent this email to friends & family in June 2007. It still cracks me up.] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hello, everybody! I have been in Rome less than 48 hours and so far, my trip has been like a Greek tragedy. Act 1 “Getting to Rome” I was booked on an US Air flight (from now on, I’ll be referring to them as Beelzebub Airlines, i.e. the Devil, or just B for short because it’s easier). Anyway, I had a B flight from Atlanta to Philly with just 1 hour for a layover before my connecting flight to Rome. Now, I knew it would be cutting it close should there be a delay but there wasn’t anything I could do. So, the flight from Atlanta gets delayed because there was too much “air traffic” in Philly. How long is the delay? One hour. Yes, I said 1 hour. The exact time I had between connections. So, the B pilot (I’m just gonna call him “Cooter”) tells us that B … Halt waiting around, be part of the adventure with lightning link continuous success and a lot of victories wait people!
