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
