Arrivé

The flight from CDG was smooth and pleasant, and the plane was not nearly full, so it was comfortable. We landed at Raleigh-Durham airport an hour and 10 minutes ahead of schedule.

I had an easy 3½-hour drive down to the coast, but I didn't stop to take any photos. I just wanted to get home as fast as I could.

    1. I say that because I remember how charming and at home I felt when we came back to the US and I heard Southerners again ..

    2. I agree about the Southern English. On the plane I sat next to (but with an empty seat between us) a "young" woman (she mentioned having grandchildren) who grew up and lives in Raleigh. I really enjoyed her way of speaking and her good conversation.

  8. Ha! That's funny about enjoying hearing Southern English :) I hadn't thought of that, but I guess it's rare to come across, abroad :) Enjoy your time here!

    1. There are many varieties of Southern English. I like the accent in the Raleigh-Durham area.

  9. Wonderful, I hope your entire visit and return is as smooth and comfortable.
    My accent is filtered through NY and Argentina lol ... people can never figure out where I am from due to an accent they cannot place.

    1. I think there was a strong wind coming from the northeast with that snowstorm that went through New England, etc., yesterday.

    2. Yes, the wind in VA was enough to blow a car some and quite strong to walk in. One hour less in a plane is a real blessing as is an empty seat next to oneself.

    1. Yes, Delta. I had an Air France ticket but the flight was operated by Delta.
