Warning! I'm bored post.....
Now I'm really excited because my faithful travel with a particular airline has finally awarded me a free round trip INTERNATIONAL flight, I think that's awesome...Conditions apply of course but so far what I have looked into isn't so bad, and yes I have traveled thousands upon thousands of miles, I think since I joined I have flown 70thousand miles in the past 2 years, more if you count other airlines.
I have been in all kinds of airport strife too, like spending the night in Washington Dulles airport thanks to some hurricane this year. But I'm resilient, ok to a point!
I had to sleep on some chairs, one I noticed had tomato sauce stuck on it eww, I'm used to hotels!! I do find my emotions get messed up at the time of flight delays and I have to make a trip to the bathroom and cry it all out lol, but hey that's just me.
During my second trip overseas, I got stuck in LAX airport all day, I was tired from a 14hour flight and not in my right mind. This poor guy that I had sat next to from Australia came over to me and asked me something (who can remember what it was, I was tired!) and that's it, the waterworks came on and I cried right in front of him, he looked so worried :) Then that caused 2 others to come over and ask me if I was ok and even went as far as buying me a beer hahaha. It's ok I didn't go off with strangers it was all there at the airport, besides they were in the same boat as I was. This led to me meeting 2 Americans and the delay didn't seem as bad, still, it was bad enough.
I keep a little travel diary with me when I go away, it's full of these stories.
My favorite airport delay was when I got stuck in San Francisco, I got to spend a night and day there in a gorgeous hotel, I was on my own but still managed to have myself a blast, I took the train to the city and WOW, it's gorgeous. I want to go back there some day.
That's all from me, I have a few more things to say but this post is so long! Ta ta :)
