1st hurdle

USA | Tuesday, 29 December 2015 | Views [357] | Comments [1]

So first hurdle averted! Because of the inclement weather everywhere, all flights were delayed. So of course I heard the dreaded speaker pipe up with my full name (horror of horrors), and tell me to "please step up to the counter". As I dragged my pack (which is half the size of my petite frame) to the counter, I listen to them as they tell me that the flight is delayed and the next flight wont land in SF till 10:45. I looked at her and said "I'm sorry, but I have to be on an International flight at 12am". She looks at me like listen little girl you're not only one trying to get to connecting flights. So I put on my sweetest little cherubic face and ask if there is anything earlier. She tells me there is one flight boarding and that i would have to book it. So I haul my ginormous pack across my body and make a valiant effort to start to trot/run to the gate. Then out of the mist arose one of those guys who rode around offering rides. I gave him a Chechire cat grin and said "I gotta get to gate C1!" I hopped on and away we went! We arrived just in time to get a new boarding pass and waddle my and my bag down the gate. Hefted my bag with a Thor like strength in a compartment and plopped my butt in a middle seat and took a big sigh of relief. First one down, two more flights!! Next stop, Taiwan!!

Oh man! First hurdle indeed! Hope your flight to Taipei went more smoothly and you got to enjoy the stinky tofu!
