I was not a science geek in school. Sure, I took a little Biology and even less Chemistry. Why would one fill there syllabus with such mind numbing crap as memorizing the Periodic Table when there were stimulating, and useful classes to take like Communications, Political Science, Economics, Law, and yes, even Home Ec. So, needless to say, there was no Physics in my high school repertoire. For this reason, I have absolutely no understanding of how a really freakin’ heavy metal tube on wheels can speed down a runway and lift up into the air. And what’s even more amazing is that it STAYS up in the air for several hours. It’s just one of those things. I don’t need, nor really want to understand the intricacies of flight. I just want to enjoy the benefits of it.
I did take some time on the weekend to go and watch “Sully” at the theatre
We were off in the very early hours of the morning today. So early, in fact, that I’d refer to it more accurately as “last night”. Our flights were all smooth and uneventful, which, when you’re flying, is a good thing. Nice long stops at the Maple Leaf Lounges in Montreal and Calgary were a nice touch and let us refuel and refresh. In Calgary they served Donair Pizza that was to die for!!
Our arrival in Vancouver was closely followed by the arrival of our luggage on the carrousel…always a good thing! Then a quick call to the hotel and the shuttle was along to pick us up
So we’re back in our very large corner room. It seems I booked a handicap accessible room by mistake. But I’m loving this mistake. The room is huge and so is the bathroom.
Tomorrow we head back to the airport where we catch our transfers to the ship in downtown Vancouver. One more sleep!!
