It’s always stressful to catch an early flight and this time around was no exception. First of all I can’t have a complete restful night awaiting for the alarm to go off. So here we are thinking that we are on time, leaving at 7:30 for a 9:07am departure (airport is about 10mns away) we were all checked in so all we had to do was check our bags… $25 per bag… Darn United! If at all possible remind me not to fly United or to carry on instead :/. Let me note that as soon as we walk in we see this HUGE line to pass security, no, it’s not normally this long, and in my mind I’m thinking we are going to lose this flight! (this happened to us on our flight to Europe, long story, I’ll share that later) So here we are checking in our bags when the service rep points us to that same exact HUGE line!! He comforts us by letting us know that it looks worse than what it is
I don’t believe him so with here I am with a nauseous stomach I’m always thinking the worst in line for 30mns. At 8:30 we are RUSHING to our gate 87 only to be about to board the WRONG plane! we are then told that the plane switched gates.. Gate 73 all the way to the opposite side, trust me, when you are about to loose a plane a few gates away seems miles away. So here we are running again… Finally at Gate 73 we are CASUALLY told that our flight is delayed ONE HOUR!! Sigh! And all that running and nervousness for nothing, OK, yes, it was somewhat a relief. Finally more relaxed we go on to have something to eat. Later on we find out that it will take another hour and a half before boarding starts. Let me note that I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a relaxed crowd not complaining about a delayed flight, I credit this to the invention of the iPad and WiFi Internet connection 🙂
Anyway, all that morning craziness didn’t matter because we finally made It to Kauai at 1:30pm. Beautiful weather, friendly people and us with a very happy heart, here to celebrate our 10th year anniversary!
Here is a sneak peek from our trip, I hope to post the “real” photos later ;).
