Nearly home - We arrived in Toronto last night. There were a couple of navigation humour losses as we attempted to find the right ramp for the Periphrique but we arrived at CDG in good time. And good time is what you need there. The airport was built for another time and can hardly cope with high traffic and big planes. There was one scanner for the flight and it took over and hour to get to the gate.
BUT once at the gate a big surprise. We had all been upgraded to First. So to the Air Canada good fairies who do this - Thank you very much. It has been worth the delays earlier in the year.
A long and comfy trip to Toronto. It is early in the morning now - Robin and I were asleep by 7.30 last night but have been up and or dozing since 2am. (8 hour time difference) We set off soon for the airport and the last flight to PEI and home and the dogs (and cat).
So 6 of us have spent a wonderful week together. Apart from my navigation bumps, we have all been very nice and loving to each other as well. Not many families can pull that off and I feel great. Brought together by a member of the family and the larger family of our country, we feel deeply grateful to belong to both. It has been truly the trip of a lifetime that we can all draw on as the years roll by.
I hope that our children's children will do the same.
Thank you too dear readers for coming along with me. I will post some pictures when I get home and then it is back to work.
