Well, I finally made it to Santander with all my bags too. Air Alaska forgot to charge me for my bags on the flight out of Anchorage, thought I was home free until my connection with Air France righted the wrong. That being said I am now a poorer man. My last flight to Santander was delayed by a few hours due to a massive thunder storm in Madrid, but I was able to get into town and to the hostal right when the owner was closing for the night. Other than a severe case of jet lag everything is gravy prawns.
