Well, I made it home, and after 14 hours of sleep I’m feeling much better.
We flew out of Heathrow Saturday morning with only a half hour delay, and arrived in Raleigh with warm temperatures and fuel prices that had increased 50 cents a gallon while we were gone. They are still a long way from the US$10-US$12 a gallon in Europe, but we’re getting closer.
Countries visited: Five (Six if you count a layover in Denmark)
Number of days gone: 15
Number of different beds: 11
There were only three flight delays and they were minor, and my bag managed to find me the whole time. We managed a total of four OpenNMS seminars, and I think they were well received.
All in all an amazing trip, but not something I would want to do again unless I could add a day between each country to recover.
