Day 1 - The flight out

Toronto, Canada

Nothing like getting out of the Vancouver slush on an early ride with Jeff to the airport. We had yet ANOTHER delay to our flight (now that's 2 hours).

Free internet in YVR is our friend. How on earth did our parent survive 2 hour delays let alone longer. Finally boarded after using a 2-for-1 at A&W for some bacon and eggers.

The plane was...nice! Amazing for air canada! In fact every seat even had power plugs. This is new to me as I guess I've been shoved in some pretty old ass planes in the past. Regardless they even had USB pugs for charging my phone. Thank you Air Canada! Service was surly at best...this doesn't surprise me too much for the airline. I do enjoy the movie selection, very nice indeed. I even got to watch some episodes of House. Needless to say my book has 10 pages read. We shouldn't complain, they were apologising to many people flying back from down under who were probably subjected to a muti-day layover in Vancouver during the snow storm.

Now we're in the T.dot waiting again...4 hours...we got herded into the secure area after seeing all the wonderful airport cafes and crap we could have enjoyed. Now we're in the 'secure' area with pretty limited facilities - still it's not that bad. In fact we enjoyed a lovely 4 chicken strips and some salad for a low low $32. Yay airports.

Coming up next, 10 hour flight to Santiago. Feel those legs go to sleep...feel em!
