Well it was a bit of a rough start and we almost didnīt make it out. Our flight scheduled to leave San Jose at 10pm was delayed until 2am. We all boarded around 2:15AM and sat on the plane for a half hour before the pilot announced, that due to a missed maintenance check (and no one around that time of night to do it) we could not fly. So, we all had to get off the plane and wait in line as one by one, two agents tried to re-route us for later that day (Sunday) from San Jose or get us on flights from San Francisco or Oakland. Our flight to London left New York at 7:45pm, so it was crucial for us to get an early flight. After a few hoops and no sleep, we DID make it to Oakland via cab and just barely made it on the 7am flight to NY, arriving at 5:45pm-plenty of time to catch our next flight. Whew. Challenge #1 completed. We were already beginning to feel as if we were on the Amazing Race.
