Home again, home again!!

Wow, what an adventure. Our trip to Israel was unparalleled. Obviously 3 1/2 weeks isn't enough time to do justice to that beautiful country. But what we saw was awesome, wonderful, thrilling -- you name it.

We endured a 19-hour plane ride from Tel Aviv to LAX. The first leg of the flight, from Tel Aviv to Toronto was pretty good. Coach is always a bit uncomfortable -- but between videos to watch, audio books to listen to and people to meet -- we had a good flight. It was 12 hours.

The rest of the journey, Toronto to LAX,  was 5 hours. The plane wasn't very full, so each of us had a 3-seat "bed" on-which to sleep. I was surprised that Air Canada wanted to charge $7 for a blanket and $7 for a pillow!! I've heard the airlines are trying to maximize their profits, but that's "crazy"!!

But, all is well that ends well. We're home safe n' sound -- that's what counts. So, now the question: "Where to next"??!! I don't know for sure. Maybe India. Maybe Ireland. Maybe ???

Got any ideas?????
