We arrived in Barcelona on Saturday night, August 19, after 26 hours of travel from New York that included a missed connection and a long wait in Miami, a peaceful 3 hour ride on the AVE train from Madrid and several taxis, as well as a few long slogs through the airports and train stations. But we are here!
OK, sadly our bags were not as lucky. American Airlines decided to keep them in Miami for a while longer. At least Benji’s and Mimi’s (and Ibby’s and Brook’s for a few days). But happily, for the first time ever we purchased travel insurance, so we’ve been out shopping for all of the “necessaries” that the policy covers.
