Veronica and I returned home from our most recent adventures which took us to Budapest and then Prague. We also took a train to get from one city to the other.
This was Veronica's first train ride and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
As usual I took lots of photos on this trip and I will post them as soon as I get a chance to go through and edit them.
It might take me a while until they get posted because I am gearing up for my back surgery which is only 8 days away...October 5th. Something that must be done but also something I am not looking forward to at all.
The day before yesterday Veronica and I headed back up to Herndon, VA so that we could go through our final interview the Customs and Border Control folks in order to secure our Global Entry status. Besides our final brief interview, we had to bring in some paperwork, have our fingerprints taken electronically and photos taken. Before the evening was finished we had already received confirmation that our Global Entry status had been approved and we were each assigned new Known Traveler Numbers. Our Global Entry cards should arrive via mail within a 2 weeks period.
By having our Global Entry status it will allow us to be processed much quicker at the airports upon our returning to the U.S. from our international travels.
Between now and the date of my surgery I will be tying up all of the loose ends as much as possible since it will be a bit until I am back to my "normal" self.
