So here I am again, at ABIA a waiting for my flight out. This time I'll be going to London to assist in the Common Book Program. It's my first time taking students abroad but I feel like all the stress this week has brought me to a place of peace now.
I am eating the last of my fridge food at Ruta Maya drinking my cuppa joe and reading a book. I'm excited for this trip. I have not been back to London for a while and I might see Rachel on this trip.
I'm on my way to Charlotte and I was lucky enough to snap an exit row seat. Yes, I know I'm short so what do I need he extra legroom for, you ask. But hey no matter how short you are extra leg room is always nice. Plus I put my personal item under the chair in front of me so I was still able to stretch out a bit.
I packed light this trip because I did not want to have to cart around my rollie. Plus I left room in my wardrobe to buy clothes in London.
I text Katrina when I landed to get her input about where to eat. She suggest Bojangles, but when I walked out there I realized that it was nothing but fried chicjpken, which is my least favorite food ever. Plus I wanted something a little lighter. So I had sushi in the middle of the concourse which was pretty good.
Second leg of the journey and I am finally on to London. Remind me to never again go on American Airlines. This is probably one of the oldest planes I have been on. I know it sounds snobby but I just wasn't expecting it and this is a long enough flight where the plane can make a difference.
Sometimes it's a miracle for me to see how I pass a several hours in a flying metal tube. We have about 5 hours to go on this flight and I'm hoping I can sleep, I am just not sure if this is possible. In Austin, I bought an expensive ass neck pillow, but it has definitely been worth it. It's a memory foam one. It's got so many thoughtful things on it, it's crazy. Normally during a flight I don't read the in flight magazines, but when I pulled out the magazine I saw Chris Evans and I had to stare at the pictures and read the article. Yeah, I did drool a bit. It was pretty damn awesome pre-sleep reading. I see good dreams in my future.
