We are here

After an eleven-plus hour flight extended by headwinds and the need to circle the city while waiting for a landing slot, we arrived in San Francisco! It was 10 pm UK time, but 2 pm on our new clocks. Passports in hand, we approached the immigration official with some trepidation. After all, this was not a holiday but hopefully an entrance that would allow us to live in America with my husband working and myself gloriously titled as an 'accompanying spouse'! Aka a legally-pronounced 'lady of leisure'!!!

We have all read of complaints of travellers affronted by immigration officers. But when our turn came, we were met with polite, friendly interest as our visas were checked and paperwork explained, and in a few minutes we were ushered through.

Hi San Fran, we're here!
