LOL
They would actually be fun to travel with, except they are not frum, so there would always be some tension.  :o

Day 10:

Travel home...They had a afternoon flight with Southwest into Los Angeles to catch Alitalia back to Israel via Rome. My flight was at night with Spirit to Newark. I know...I know Spirit  :o :o but I did pay to upgrade to a big seat and took seat 1A It was plenty comfy to sleep most of the trip. Based on my memory this flight should take 5+ hours we ended up doing it in under 4 hours we landed an hour+ early! Usually that would be amazing but my ride was just waking up to get me when we landed so there was a nice wait until they showed up :(.

Day 11-12-13

Spent shabbos with my family...check out all the new building in crazy Lakewood.

For my flight home I booked Swiss Business via Zurich. I thought it would be cool to take an 11 hour layover to see the spots. I landed and davened in the prayer room with a couple other people...in the middle w

e started feeling back in Israel as a few cousins came in to pray as well. BH there was a mechitzah  :P. I decided to partner up with someone to check out the city. We left the Airport took the train downtown (12 minute ride) Started to walk to Fein und Shein which was fantastic!! Pricing was surprisingly decent and portions were nice sizes as well. I thoroughly enjoyed both the walk there from the main station (Around 30 minute walk). After that I just took the trams all over the city to take in the sights before heading back to the airport to enjoy the lounge in Terminal E for a couple of hours. My main mistake (and the reason I cut short to go back to the airport) was the COLD, I was coming from the warm southwest and did not bring a coat. I survived with the Scarf-Head Cover you get from the Swiss Amenity kit.

I did have one hiccup with Swiss Kosher Meal (besides the taste) As I was eating my greens there was hidden glass in the food and when I crunched on it shattered in my mouth...They did write a report about it but I am still waiting to hear about some kind of compensation from them.

Thank you for reading!!

Surprisingly we did not get a gate on arrival from Newark and we needed to take the bus transfer to the Terminal:
