We survived!

We arrived in Fairbanks today after only 17 hours in transit. We took the Condor flight from Frankfurt to Fairbanks via Whitehorse. Rowan was a bit confused - he thought we were taking the Concorde and had to deal with only being on a 767.

The flight stopped in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada. The airport has one gate and no transit area. We had to exit the back door of the plane and stay in some sort of temporary building while the plane was "cleaned." I am not sure what was actually cleaned, because the plane still looked like it had been used for 9 hours.

The trip was more or less ok, but the last hour was a bit loud. Rowan slept until the last 30 minutes and then was very unhappy to still be on the plane. Emily went to comfort him, which made Niamh unhappy.

Rowan and Niamh went to sleep at 6 that night. Niamh slept for about 12 hours, but Rowan only slept for 5. We got up at 11:30 and stayed up until 3. He then slept from 3 to about 5. I have a feeling we'll be spending some quality time in the living room in the middle of the night.
