stuck in the USA

Well we had a fun 48hrs trying to get home!

We left New Orleans on weds at 1pm and flew to Philadelphia.

We boarded a flight at 9pm to Dublin and then at midnight were told our flight was returning to Philly.

On our way to New Orleans we had found Philly airport awful and had said to each other 'let's not visit this town!'.
Imagine our delight when we found the airline could get us to London the next day but told us to wait to try at the airport the next day to get to Glasgow.

We waited around a lot. We travelled from terminal to terminal dealing with unhelpful staff throughout, however by 8am we had printed tickets to heathrow via Chicago.

And that's as far as we got. Chicago.

So you're in Chicago. Cool, but hope you get home soon.

Philly is actually a not bad city...the airport however is the worst

And it will last at least til tomorrow (tuesday) but if you are stuck in Chicago that's great ! I loved this city ! it's very famous for architects, some buildings especially the very old skyscrapers with golden ornaments are beautiful !
Try to do a roundtrip ! There was even an Al Capone roundtrip !

That volcano sure is wreaking havoc. But at least you had a grand time in NOLA!
