MW Mobile Blog

For friends, family and the random search engine visitor. This blog started as an experiment in mobile blogging from my Palm TREO 600 700 Prē HTC Evo,Samsung 5. Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities. Expect bad golf, good fishing, great sailing, eating, drinking, adventure travel, occasional politics and anything else I find interesting along the way including, but not limited to, any of the labels listed here...

More Airports

Sunrise over the North Atlantic

Once we leave the US my Verizon service becomes useless, so the blog will now move to less timely updates, but with higher quality pics. To fill out our "full house" of airports en route - we landed in the rain at...
Airport #3 Charles DeGaulle (CDG)

Where we caught a shuttle...

...for an hour and a half bus ride through heavy traffic to get to...

airport #4 - Orly Airport.

And another five hour layover, before we catch a short flight to...

airport #5 - Avignon.

Then we load the luggage into a rented Citreon Picasso, and drive to Althen des Paluds, where we get lost and drive aimlessly around town until some locals take pity on us, get in their car, and lead us to...

... our destination. A rented chateau where a worried Wes was standing outside trying to reach us on the cell phone. This last being an exercise in futility (see note regarding Verizon coverage above).

This is the second time in the last year that Sigrid has arranged a five airport day for one of our trips. I may have to fire her as our travel coordinator.
