Well it took us a little longer to get home than expected....we left Zurich at 6:55am, and flew to Amsterdam, where we caught our connecting flight to Houston.  While heading pretty fast down the runway, about to take off from Amsterdam, our plane came to a sudden halt.....We passengers were very concerned as to why our plane would just stop!  It turns out, well-- as the crew told everyone-- that the front tires on the plane needed to be replaced.  Fabulous!  I never get nervous when I fly, but I did find myself a little uneasy here, hoping we land okay in Houston with our 'new wheels'.......So, the crew put on a movie for us and served snacks while we sat on the runway for about 2 hours while the crew did whatever it was they were doing, and replacing the tires, as we were told.......
All in all, the flight home ended up being a safe one even though we were on the plane a total of about 12 hours instead of 9.....We spent Friday evening at my parents house, and drove back to Austin early Saturday morning.
We return to the 'reality' of life and back to work on Monday.  Every time I look at our pictures, it makes me sad that the trip went by so fast!!!  We were on-the-go almost non-stop for 7.5 weeks, and I could have kept going, I loved it so much!  But- I did miss our family and friends, and our dog!  Our trip was an amazing adventure that we were so fortunate to have.  I hope that our blog will be a good source of info for anyone planning to visit any of these places.  Now maybe next we'll have to try out for "The Amazing Race"...............
