Hello From Austria
Hello September .. hello Austria. Of course it was busy the rest of last week as I was preparing for leaving for Austria. Saturday we went to Rizzuto's for lunch and Sunday was my travel day. Of course as it seems to always go these days my flight was delayed. Ended up with 1 hour 25 min delay before we even left for the airport (which was the only blessing) Delay was due to a delay with the incoming aircraft. All in all I guess I was lucky as the flight was cancelled completely the day before.
It ended up being a day of delays and everything taking longer than it should. JFK was a mess but I guess it was to be expected on a holiday weekend. The check in line took forever as did the security line. Total madhouse. The flight itself was relatively uneventful but my connecting flight to Vienna also ended up being delayed. And it took forever for the luggage to get off loaded in Vienna but luckily I did get my luggage so all in all everything ended up fine, just took much longer than it should have.
My jetlag has been a pain too but I guess it is what it is. I had the day off today which was nice. Even nicer since the weather was beautiful. Went for a walk with my mom and also spent some time sitting outside. Also accompanied her to her speech therapy session and all in all had a really nice day. Watched a neat nature documentary on Cornwall with her at night as well.
Tomorrow I have a 1/2 day and will need to work from 6-10pm (12-4pm EST) and then working the rest of week (Thur/Fr) But I do already have plans for the weekend with a couple of friends in Vienna on Saturday and in Salzburg on Sunday. The weather is supposed to get more unstable and a bit cooler starting tomorrow but I guess we'll see how it goes. I am here for three weeks so there are bound to be some up and downs with the weather while I am here.
