We made it to Dublin and have had a good, long nap. The hotel—to our relief—allowed us to check in at 8:30 in the morning. This was much needed since Katherine did not care for the flight over from Chicago. It follows that her parents didn’t care for it either. And arrived very tired, even though the flight was quite a bit shorter than it might have been (a good tailwind cut almost an hour from the flying time).
Tomorrow we have a very early flight to London. Luckily, it’s a much shorter flight.
Congratulations–you’re almost there!
