Our flight from Dublin to Dallas-Fort Worth
 






It was time to board our Continental flight from Dublin to Newark, New Jersey outside of New York City.  We left at 9:45 am for a 7 hour flight, but guess what?  We arrived at Noon!  On the way we had a lot of time to write our tour reports.  We had lunch on the plane.
 



Over the Atlantic, home still seems far away!


Writing tour reports on the plane
 


Landing at Newark, New York City was easy to see!
 


Then we transferred to our Dallas-Fort Worth flight
 


We were still writing our tour reports!

Thank you
Mrs. Carter, Debi, Layne
and all the adults who were on the trip!

We are already working on the permanent version of
1999 British Isles Tour
with more pictures, some of these pictures improved
and the story in the girls' own words!

We will do England first, then Scotland, and so on.
So keep checking back!
Also when we are done, we plan to put the tour
on a CD ROM which you can put in your computer
and see the tour without going on the internet!
It will load much faster, and it may even have music on it!
