Everything went quite smoothly when departing form Kauai Airport, heading towards San Francisco and then to New York JFK. The flights were on time, I was easily able to make my connection flight in SFO and we touched down at JFK at about 6:15 in the morning of August 23.
The bad news: my luggage was not there.
I reported that immediately to one of the Baggage Claim staff and they said that the next flight from SFO will arrive at 4pm and my bag should be on it and that they will deliver it then to my door.
Well, let’s see…it is now 10:17pm and still no luggage. I called them up and they said again, that I should get it this night, so have it by tomorrow morning. Let us hope for the best. I do not wanna even think about the unlikely event that I have to fly home tomorrow without one of my bags.
I feel the jetlag right now, so the whole day in NYC was like a big blur. I moved out the furniture from my apartment and then met with Florian for a final chat. He will be here and enjoy New York until end of October.
So this is it, I guess. 6 months in North America are coming to an end. An experience of a lifetime, definitely. But, honestly, after these 6 months I am happy and ready now to go home to good old Austria. Really looking forward to that, hopefully with 2 bags tomorrow
