We had a long day of travel yesterday. We were up at 4 AM. Check-in at the airport seemed to take quite a long time. I think the check-in guy had a little bit of an attitude.

Despite being only a 45 minute flight, I was shocked when they brought around breakfast! And I don't remember specifying a vegan meal - but I must have done, as I got one! Papaya, melon and a vegetable pesto roll! Amazing!! With guava and pineapple juice. One of the best ...
