Going to Norway

The flight from JFK to Bergen. The beginning of the Great Norwegian Adventure. From Sunday April 14 to Sunday April 28, 2019. I left in the morning on the Cornell bus to New York City. Because of the grounding of all 737 Max 8 planes, my flights on Norwegian Air were changed so that they were now out of JFK airport in New York City, instead of the Stewart Airport in Newburg, NY.

I spent the afternoon at the office where I was consulting, then got transport to the airport and began the journey (even though I had already spent 4 hours on a bus).

JFK Airport
