Today was all about being in the air. Have I ever told you how much I love being airborne? It’s like this amazing adventure where you enter into a room, sit and have a coffee, then walk out again into a different world. And that’s exactly what happened today.
The world I really took full advantage of today though was of the sky variety.
I flew from Vancouver, BC to Chicago, Illinois, then finally Detroit, Michigan. My iPhone and me were the best of buds as I snapped away. Window seats all around! (yep, I called the airline later and asked if that was possible and they moved me without issue)
And I’m thrilled because America, you are beautiful!
And suddenly the mountains disappeared and signs of heat were everywhere you turned… Which freaked me out for about 2 seconds, because…
… the grass came back. Can you tell I may be a little gun-shy about this heat y’all speak of?!
(how’s my southern coming along?)
Tell me this isn’t gorgeous…
I saw the Chicago airport for all of under 1 hour. I quickly grabbed a cool sweatshirt with a Chicago logo and ran for my next flight. Stunning building though!
The flights were fantastic. Not a hiccup in sight. I met the nicest people too and naturally told everyone that asked that I was heading to The World’s Longest Yard Sale, thanks to GMC. I just may have a couple new Funky Junkers on board soon! 🙂
Thanks to all those amazing travelling men that pointed me in the right airport directions, made suggestions on what to take in, and basically just enjoyed my excitement with me. So cool. You know who you are.
I settled into the gorgeous Weston Hotel at the Detroit Airport and after noting the gal next to me devouring salmon, my Oh Canada roots came back full swing and I ordered up a hot salmon spinach salad. Oh my… I groaned with every single bite. It had cranberries and feta cheese sprinkled on top with a light poppyseed dressing. Delish!!
Tomorrow is another action packed day and I want plenty of rest. So until then, nighty night friends, and see you tomorrow.
