I'm in Miami for 2 days now. Scheduled to sail to the Bahamas in the next days if weather allows. It is unlikely that I will update this site a lot until my return in mid-january since there is obviouslly very little chance to find an internet kiosk in the middle of the ocean . I wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to every reader of this website. A big thanks to all of you who I met during my travel and still reading this. To all friends and family in France: see you in about 3 weeks time.
I just arrived in Dallas a few hours ago and will gladly enjoy a good night sleep after all this time spent in planes and airports. We changed planes in Auckland and amazingly a couple of us (including me) who were sitting in the upper rows of the 767 between Auckland and Sydney were assigned the same seats number in the 747 from Auckland to Los Angeles...meaning that I did the trip in Business Class. And let me tell you that I enjoyed that seat ! Once in Los Angeles: total chaos !
