I didn’t realize (or plan it), but we had the Emergency Exit row to ourselves! I’ve never had this row and was pretty jazzed about it! It’s the little things 🙂 We flew COPA air and received a croissant sandwich for breakfast. It had roast beef so I passed it to Ben and ate the carrot muffin.
Plus we got a hot meal for lunch! I can’t remember the last time I got something for free on an airplane so I was pretty excited. Ben got the beef meal and I asked about a vegetarian option, but they were out.
I didn’t know they were going to provide meals so I packed lunch. It was a sandwich, chips, apple and a bag of romaine for when the inevitable snack monster hit.
I ate it like chips and asked Ben to take a picture of me. Although, I have to admit this portrays a skewed picture of me as I’m eating more fun and less healthy this trip. At least I started with good intentions, I’ll have to start this trick up again when I get home.
The entire process of crossing the canal from the Pacific to the Atlantic takes over 8 hours. But, it takes over two weeks to go under South America. It costs about $100,000 for a ship to pass too! (But that’s a lot cheaper than taking the long way.)
Okay, I’m going to cross my fingers and press publish before I make this post any longer! I’ll see ya in a bit 🙂
