The alarm went off way to early that morning. Why do planes have to leave at dark-o-clock in the morning? Our taxi we requested was even early and we made it out to the airport without any overheating happening. So, that was good. We got to the airport and was informed that our crew was resting. So, we rested with them for two hours. Continental did provide muffins, pretzels, juice and coffee, as well as "customer care kits", which were coupons for free alcohol (no more, please..no more) and free headsets once we got onboard. We filled out a Customer Response Card and actually got $50 towards our next flight with them. Very nice customer service.
Everything else was thankfully uneventful, except for my wife forgetting her hat on the plane and remembering when we were in baggage claim. San Francisco customer service wasn't nearly as friendly as Ft. Lauderdale, but she did get her hat back. The Limo guy was right there and we got home around 4pm, PST. The cats were happy to see us, Iggi even hacked up a hairball of joy.
I have yet to completely unpack my suitcase, but I know I'm going to have to give in and do it eventually. It's just the last stage of admitting that the vacation is over. We had an absolutely wonderful time and are considering planning another Olivia vacation in a year or two. Olivia has vacations in which they take over a club-med or another all inclusive resort for a couple weeks. We're thinking about doing that next time as we'll actually get to learn more about the culture of the area we'd be staying at. Plus, it's less expensive than a cruise. Right now, it's difficult to plan anything with the war still on, but it's nice to have the dream.
