To no surprise, this trip was booked by way of Delta. Though as my stories always go, the cost of the trip could have been avoided with proper research and a booking with Marriott rewards instead. But alas, this information will be put to use in future planning. In a few days, I will be skymiles cruising or for better accuracy, I will be cursing for the first time.
I’m looking forward to this new way of travel. There is that slight disappointment that I will only be in Belize and Mexico for one day each but Belize and Mexico, here I come. I’m incredibly excited, as I generally am with most of my vacations. Looking forward to share more details and pictures of this trip.
Last, in the spirit of the holidays my sister came up with the grand idea to travel with small gifts for the children of each country. Love love this and looking forward to sharing the joys of Christmas on the trip. I hope that the blessing we each have to travel in turn becomes a blessing to another person.

Please sir, can you get up?
After running past 20 or so gates to catch this flight, begging the gate agent to please let me board, then practically kissing her hand for giving me the magic key that let’s me walk down that corridor, the very last thing I want to do is squeeze myself between you and the seats to get to my seat.
Hands and legs shaking, coming down this adrenaline with sweat running down my back .. the last thing I want to do is figuring out the best ankle to avoid having my back side in your face.
Practically jogging, pardoning myself for running over innocent feet, and almost pushing innocent kids aside to make way, the last thought on my mind is that I’d actually have to ask you to please get up so I can take a seat.
So please sir, though it appears you have killed chivalry and buried him in your backyard, for the sake of my sanity, can you please get up for me to take a seat.
