There is officially only 5 days remaining before our flight takes off! It will be a long ass flight, 5-hours for the first leg, almost 8 for the second. Yea, we couldn't get a direct flight - Aer Lingus stopped direct flights from SFO quite a while back. Oh well. We have a 3-hour layover in Chicago, which will give us time to grab real food as breakfast will have been many hours earlier.
