Our early morning flight left Toulouse on time to Frankfort, where we had a four hour layover. There we enjoyed a nice country breakfast of eggs and sausage, then checked out some of the shops.
The eight hour flight to Philadelphia was uneventful; the meal adequate. After spending an hour to clear passport control, we picked up our luggage and went through security check again before rechecking our luggage for the five hour flight to Sacramento. We made it with just enough time to enjoy a glass of wine at the bar across from our gate (something we'd become accustomed to each day).
We got to Sacramento about 8:30 pm, and picked up our truck which Paul had left in the parking lot for us. When we finally got home we were pretty exhausted and had no problems getting to sleep. As much as we enjoy traveling, it's great to get home to your own bed and home after so many weeks away.
It was the end of a fantastic 3-1/2 week motorcycle trip to the Midi-Pyrenees, one that will provide many wonderful memories of explorations throughout the southwest of France and northern Spain. We met many wonderful people along the way, many who spoke less English than we did French or Spanish. We were lucky to have been able to visit lots of markets, towns and villages, while enjoying a home exchange in Toulouse. We sampled lots of great motorcycle roads, wine, cheese, and food. We were fortunate to have had good friends along to enjoy most of it with us, and the technology to share the trip with lots of friends and family.
We hope you enjoyed our travel blog. Now its time to unwind, unpack, and maybe start thinking about our next adventure!
