Madrid to Reno

We made it home. We left for the Airport in Madrid about 6:20 am Madrid time on Monday and finally arrived home 36 hours later. There was a long line to check in at the airport in Madrid but it moved fairly quickly.

Our flight from Madrid to Miami was quite good. It was only about half full. Getting through health screening, customs and immigration and rechecking our bags in Miami took less than an hour. In Madrid airport they were making regular announcements to keep a one meter distance between people. In Miami that didn’t seem to be a concern.

Our flight from Miami to San Francisco was almost full. My middle seat made for a long flight.

My daughter and her family left our truck for us at the airport in San Francisco. About 1am Tuesday morning we were on the road home to Reno.

There was very little traffic. We stopped to nap a couple of times. Interstate 80 was closed through the mountains so we sat in a parking lot in the town of Colfax for several hours.

It feels surreal to have been in the middle of a two month trip one day and be home the next. Duke is busy working on trying to get refunds. We are doing laundry and going through the mail. I will update our itinerary and the final videos of the trip on my YouTube channel in the next couple of days.

  1. So glad you posted about making it home . . . I am Jo Ann Sadler’s friend and was following your posts . . . now I can stop worrying . . . well about that anyway . . . here in Iowa all restaurants, bars, schools, casinos, sports and entertainment venues are closed. Iowans cannot meet in groups of more than 10 people. I suspect the worst is yet to come.

    1. LeAnne, I’m afraid you are right. If you are interested I just posted my last YouTube video of the trip. We are hoping to reschedule the trip with Brian and JoAnn for after this is all over.
