Over 3 weeks on the road!

It was my fault though....

Had a 6 day Milan and a 7 day Venice. Went to Antigua, Guatemala in between both trips for a little adventure vacation with the Mrs.

But I am a little tired for some strange reason.

I think I will just sit in my house and stare drooling at the walls for the next few days!


Pictures:

1. Crew doing the "Iron Man" layover. [No sleep] Lake Como, Italy.
2. Lake Como fountain
3. English Channel
4. Duomo
5. At the top of Volcano Pacaya with my wife, Juan the guide, and Ella the dog.
6. Wife's mtn bike wipeout at 7000' near Antigua
7. Open mic night with MDD and Juan the guide.
8. Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
9. Ponte Tette in VCE. The "Titty Bridge."
10. Ultimate crew meal. Thanks NYC FAs!

I'm a little hooked on the "Crew Tortilla Espangnol" after two Spain crossings. Man, ah'mo hafta lookup the recipe for that!

You know what else is sad, Doug?.....

I didn't even know about "crew pasta" out of VCE until the NYC FAs told us about it. The ATL "golden girls" have been holding out on us.............or forgetting. Senility is a terrible thing.

How was the wx in BCN?

VCE was "Africa hot." And humid too like New Orleans. Nasty! Not gonna go back there in the summer ever again.

Oh man, we get crew pasta throughout Italy and crew tortilla throughout Spain. And it's good too! See, you need to bring your butt back to JFK! :) I did that one ATL turn during the SVO 6-day and I learned the difference with catlike quickness.

How was the wx in BCN?
Freaking HOT HOT HOT. And humid. Some of us met up for a pre-debrief stroll around the area and all of my GUYliner and MANscarra started running (I'm kidding). Man, it was hot and even though it's freaking ridiculously hot in PHX, it was blazing.

But BCN was a great layover, great hotel, but we're going back to the "one we had earlier", which I'm not sure is good or not. The MAD hotel is a little closer to downtown but it's more or less like the CDG hotel with wood flooring. I think we just got kicked out for the summer in MAD.

BCN's certainly a city I need to throw on my prefs, perhaps when it cools off a little though.

If anyone lays over in VCE, chances are your hotel will be in Mestre, on the mainland side of the city.

If so, go to the Aussie Bar.

Below is a picture of Melissa, the waitress.

I don't remember if the service was good, if the beer was cold, or if the bill was correct.

All I knew was that............I didn't care!

Yup! I've been there!

It was a great way to soothe the sting of the A-line threatening to stab me in the eye because I thought the new safety video was entertaining and fresh. Next time I'm going to kick her walker out of her hands and push her in the street. :)

Flight home's boarding. Later skaters.

Gawd, I can't wait to get back to the ER. I've only been on the "Classic" for a month now and I already regret it. Vegas gets real old real quick. Seattle was good though.

Doug,

Next time you have to fly with ATL FA's, do what I do.

Organize a Bea Arthur look-alike contest for them.

It is very entertaining.

I flew with her a few weeks ago.

We got her drunk at the layover hotel and she got up and started singing and dancing to the "Milkshake" song by Kelis.
