My life

My wife and I went to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC from the 13th to the 18th of October.  

We took this trip to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary.

I’ve always wanted to visit New York.

I was happy to be able to realize my dream.

We started out from Narita airport and flew to Shanghai airport.

The flight from Narita to Shanghai took about 3 hours.

There we transferred to a flight for New York.

It took about fifteen hours from Shanghai to New York.

We went by business class this time.

When I went to Switzerland three years ago my lower back and my leg became painful from the long flights so we flew by business class this time.

It was very comfortable.

The plane landed at JFK airport at 10:15pm and we headed for the Double Tree by Hilton Fort Lee Hotel in New Jersey.

We arrived at Shanghai Airport at 4:55am where we stayed in transit.

That’s it.
