I am sometimes accused of thinking I am always right. It is because I am. My guess is that sometime in February when they canceled our flight from Warsaw to Chicago and rescheduled us on the 6:00am from Vilnius to Warsaw I might have deleted the email thinking it was advertisement. So when we woke up this morning at 8:00am and I turned on my phone, I saw the Orbitz txt saying that our 6:00 am flight was on time, I freaked out in my reserved sorta way. My mom was a wreck. After being in the phone with Orbitz and LOT for 2 hrs. they said I have to change the ticket at the airport in person no guarantees. Got to the airport we were able to fly to Warsaw on the original flight then fly to Newark. We were on our own from there. So then I called the International dept of USAir and had the loveliest woman help me change our award travel from Chicago-Phx to Newark-Phx. She did it!! Angels again! Mom was able to rebook with Marriott.

So the best part is that we arrive an hour earlier than planned and will be able to welcome David and Brett off their plane and go home together. Celebratory Svyturys!


Cheers from Vilnius Airport

    I read your travel log. My parents and ancestors came from Ciechanowiec Poland . In 1957 we passed through New York and we met Mr. Feldman who owned a delicatesen store. He was a close friend of my parents. Is he related to you?

      Michael, I am so glad you emailed me. There must be a connection. When we went to these small towns you realize that they really were small and families stayed nearby. I would love to connect with the Feldman’s in NY. The problem we have with my great grandfather is that we have nothing on him. His wife was one of 10 kids and they all moved to Milwaukee. He never wanted to move they were the hold out til the end. They were dairy farmers. After living in Ciechanowiec they moved to Kolymia (sp?) prior to immigration. This is the first I have heard of other Feldman’s. How would I connect with them? It is funny because my grandfather (Marvin Feldman) owned a grocery store and was a butcher after retired. I am not great at skype but could try.
