Our plane ride from Miami to Portugal was… LONG!
8.5 hours from Miami to Madrid.
What was supposed to be a 4 hour lay over in Madrid turned into 5 hours.
1 hour from Madrid to Lisboa.
14 hours! Ugh.
Lily was really good though.
She had a hard time falling asleep and tossed and turned while she was sleeping but did sleep through more than half the long flight.
The lay over in Madrid was a little tough.
I was carrying Lily (big mistake, next time I will bring a stroller) and after the long flight and having to go through the entire airport to get to customs and then to our connecting gate, my arm was killing me!!
Once we got to chill at our gate, we caught a beautiful sunrise and Lily was so happy to be able to just stretch out and walk around.
She was so exhausted that she fell asleep before we even got onto our connecting flight.
She wouldn’t even wake up to get off the plane.
I had her “indie” outfit in my carry-on bag but because we were both so exhausted, I never changed her.
Either way, both avo Carmo and avo Ricardo were there waiting for us as well as Lily’s biggest fan, prima Ana and Nuno.
It was a happy welcome committee. 🙂

this was my seat when I got on the plane. don’t worry, they brought me a cushion 😉
