WOW, I’ve never missed a flight [knock on wood] but Emily and I sure came close today!
Rain + dark + DC rush hour meant that we were in a parking lot on the way to the airport. Although it was 4 miles away, I think we were moving about 4 miles per hour. Our trip was not going to happen by car. Had we been without suitcases or a hurt leg, we might have been able to RUN there faster!
Enter: The Metro. We should have just had Casey drop us off there to begin with! Once we were at the Metro station we were at the airport in 10 minutes.
THEN we had an even longer hike to Frontier Airlines. We just made it to our gate with enough time to buy a coffee (which thankfully wasn’t too bad) and hop on board.
I am not a fan of Frontier Airlines (which I heard was so good!) No WiFi on the flight. No movies or TV (well, they cost extra).
HOWEVER, we are in GOOD SPIRITS!!!!
3 straight hours of talking, some magazine reading, some blogging. Happy Flyers.
Breakfast today was packed for the flight. We were quite hungry by the time it was safe to put down tray tables.
English muffin sandwiches with mashed banana, almond butter and pumpkin butter. I ate the other half of my banana at 6:30 when I packed the sandwich and it did well tiding me over until I had time to actually eat.
Delicious, but gone too fast!! While I am normally a 3-meals-a-day-plus-one-snack type, when I travel, especially to the West, I think mini meals + snacks make more sense with my hunger levels. And we have lots of snacks ready to go!
We landed in Denver and were greeted by a lovely hostess carrying some SMOOTHIES!! Jamba Banana + Granola Berry Blasts. Thanks Ashley!
The Denver Party Flight is about to let loose! Gina just arrived!
