Home at Last

I’m back home in Colorado Springs after a long travel day (day and a half) from Sochi. We all left the closing ceremonies as soon as they concluded and walked back to the Olympic Village to change clothes and get on a shuttle bus to the Sochi airport.
Once at the airport we had to walk through a field and a parking lot to a non-temperature controlled hangar and proceeded to wait in the cold for 3 hours for our chartered flight. Then they initially had us get on the wrong plane!
Flew to Frankfurt and had a 7 hour layover. Then on to Chicago with a 4 hour layover and discovered I had left my travel wallet on the Frankfurt plane-waa!
Finally made it home Monday night at 9:00!
It was a great Games,but I am glad to be home! 🙂
I will follow up on this post with some photos from the Closing Ceremonies.

  1. Everyone is to be congratulations for doing an excellent job.

    Sounds like the planning getting folks out on chartered planes could have been better.

    Congratulations to all of the skaters, to Melinda and the other staff members.
