Travel Day

Travel days have to be the worst part of going on vacation.  They are always long, and no matter which way you are going, you wish you were there already.  You get to have layovers in interesting places, sure, but you usually don’t have time to do anything but stare out the airport windows at the city you are in.  And if you do have time, it just makes the traveling part that much longer.

Our travel day back was long, although I must say that Air North, the airline we flew with, has exceptional customer service.  We didn’t have window seats, but it was cloudy over the mountains, so we didn’t really miss anything.  We flew for several hours, and then we got to have a six hour drive back home, after we picked up our car.  It was a nice day, so that is always better than driving through the snow, like if we had come home a day earlier.  We passed where the prairie fire was on our way up, and using our odometer, measured the burnt part to be at least 8km long.  Then it went behind a hill, so it could have been longer.  We also saw flags waving in the breeze, like normal.  Even with two drivers, boredom started setting in close to home.  Probably due to the fact that we had been sitting in the airport, then the plane, then the car for close to 10 hours at that point.


About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.

    That scenery looks very familiar! I have to say that drive is one of the most boring ever. I always had to play music and sing loudly to make it home 🙂

      Ugh, the worst stretch is between Brooks and Medicine Hat. It just. never. ends. It feels like you drive forever and you still don’t get anywhere close to Medicine Hat.
