KIM AND KHLOE KARDASHIANS' NIGHTMARE JOURNEY HOME

Kim Kardashian and her sister Khloe endured a gruelling 28-hour trek home for the holidays this weekend (18-19Dec10) after heavy snowfall left them stranded in Paris, France.

The socialites enjoyed a trip to South Africa last week (ends19Dec10) and planned to fly back to California via a short stop in Paris.

But the siblings were left stranded in the French capital after wintry weather grounded flights out of the country over the weekend.

Their flight home on Sunday (19Dec10) was cancelled and the Kardashians faced a tense wait to see if they would be able to make it back home in time for Christmas.

Kim updated fans on her Twitter.com page and admitted she was close to tears as the travel chaos set in, writing, "Wow it's snowing in Paris and our flight is snowed in now... should I cry now? We've been traveling for over 24 hrs w (with) delays... I've never wanted to be home so badly!"

The girls finally made it on to a plane and Kim expressed her relief after landing in California, writing, "What a journey it's been!... Home sweet home!"

Khloe added, "Kim and (I) finally landed! After 28 hours of flying! We are NOT in the best of spirits!... but we are home."
