Home Again

Got home late (LATE) last night from Switzerland.  The journey back from Neuchatel, via Zurich and O'Hare, ended up taking us twenty four from when we took to when we toppled into bed again, thanks to a long layover and even longer delays in Chicago, so Raya and I were both zombies when we arrived.  The flight on Swissair from Zurich was a delight.  The flight from Chicago to Albuquerque on American Eagle was a nightmare.  I really hate these crappy little planes that United and American have put on their domestic routes.

Anyway... very tired now, and of course a thousand emails awaited me... but I am catching up, and hope to be able to say a few words about my adventures in Europe later.  It was an amazing trip.

Zombies? I think you're "White Walkers" in the truest sense of both words! :) Rest well, and here's to hoping you recover from jet lag!

glad you are back, and had a great time in Europe!

Looking forward to hearing about the trip. My lady and I are going to the UK in the fall, by the way.

Rest up, you've got comic con coming up! Anything on that plate for yourself and the fans aside from the panel?

I will say there's ONE advantage to those little jets: You can have a seat that is BOTH a window and aisle seat! No one can sit next to you! Most EMBs and CRJs have a single column of seats on one side. :)

For me it's the TSA that's the reason why I hate flying. But the crappy little domestic jets really don't help either. Thing is, though, technology can only get better and better, and we can allow ourselves to hope that that will lead to many airline improvements.

Just a few hours ago I was on The Verge's site and came across a video of Boeing's new "Dreamliner"... unfortunately they didn't mention anything about interior comfort, but the performance is something spectacular.

To bad you couldn't jump on the back of Balerion. Definitely no delays at O'Hare flying on the black dread.

Hey Mr. Martin, I know this may be old news and perhaps not the best place to address it but I just wanted to comment on a recent article I read about you not appreciating people commenting on future books and the fact that you are not immortal.

I Love your books, but what you do with your life is none of my business and nobody else's business either. I'm sure most of us feel this way and that it is just that the naughtiest among us are often the loudest as well. Eat, drink and be merry sir!

Also, If anyone is pulling out their hair waiting for Mr. Martin's excellent books take his advice and read some of his awesome recommendations. I love your recommendations George!

If you lived "North of the Wall" (Alaska), you would be used to the "crappy little planes."

Happy you had a good time in Europe!

I always wanted to go to Europe. So much great (and terrible) history! Just want to say that I am a big fan, and I hope the jet lag didn't hit you too hard.
