@ossobuco,
Yep, 6 hours. She should be there around 1 am (east coast time). Then she has a lay-over and a flight to The Hague.

@littlek,
It looks like her flight landed a little while ago. I am not entirely sure about the flight number.

@ossobuco,
Arrgh, I typed up a long post and it logged me out.
Anyhoo, I'm in Dublin airport for a few more minutes. Reality hit me, as CJ predicted it would, on the plane. 40 minutes to landing (there's a ballad in there). That's where the realization of the hugeness of this step was first fully felt. It was rationally realized, but the feeling part was postponed until it couldn't be postponed any longer. Bitch slapped by reality I was.
Sure it's exciting, but don't even try to tell me that right now. Come back in a few days. I shall endulge in some therapeutic mourning, I think I'm entitled.

@dlowan,
Indeed.

A2K has been really useful for me when I've moved -- we're a super-portable community.

I'm sad for you and littlek though.

@Francis,
So I'm here. In some weird little (stinky) family run hotel... it's more like a house or something...but that's what my budget allows. Itching to get a phone set-up (must find someone to unblock it illegally and then find the right plan...but I'm impatient), and settle on an apartment.
Shower first. Then walk about for a few hours, then sleep, then work... At least I don't have much time to think.

@dagmaraka,
Glad you got there safely, thanks for checking in!

Do you have an apartment to go to or will you be searching from the hotel...?

@sozobe,
I have 2 to see today/tomorrow...but will hopefully line up some studios to see as well. That would be ideal.

I'm glad you made it. Did you get your luggage lost for you?

@dagmaraka,
I'm glad you made it safely to The Hague. Once you have a little place of
your own, things will look much better. I wish you'd know someone there
already, so you could have a drink together to shake the forlorn feeling off.

Talk to your Mom if you get a chance - it always helps to call Mom in emotional situations like these.

@littlek,
littlek, now that you'll be making more dough, you should save up for a
trip to The Hague.
