Jim dropping me off at the airport

My long awaited trip to Austria and the Czech Republic is finally here!.

I am attending a conference at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. The porpoise, contents and details of the conference I am going to keep then out of this blog.

However I must say that I am extremely excited about it, as it will be covering a lot of cutting edge aspects of what I do on a daily basis.

This is my first trip to both countries, and I am one of those people who can’t sleep the night before I am visiting a new interesting place.  I have always been like that, since I was a little kid. I am usually a very good sleeper, but if I am traveling the next day, that’s it, too much excitement to fall sleep, besides I really enjoy the ‘feeling of expectation of that night before”. Well I finally went to bed around 2 am to try to get ready for my 15 hour trip.

DFW international terminal

 

Tuesday is here, I am departing from Dallas-Forth Worth airport, nothing new about this trip, I work very close to the airport, so it is almost exactly the same ride as I do every day.

Jim drops me off at the international terminal and here I go to Europe once again as excited as the first time I travel outside my home country.

 

Just in case you are not familiar with DFW airport, it is the third busiest airport in world and also one of largest with a size of close to 30 square miles, that’s larger than the island of Manhattan (New York City).  Also it is the main hub for American Airlines and Southwest Airlines both headquartered in Dallas.

That's very nice to live close to DFW. I know it's convenience for those people who travel by air a lot...fortunately I live close to the LAX!! Hehe...
Usually the night before my flight, I couldn't fall into asleep as well. You're not the only one who will be excited like a kid! LOL!
