I woke up at 4:06am today. Two bags were packed… Both meeting the requirements to be carry on.
I carefully applied my mascara so as not to scare the TSA agents. Then my lovely husband drove me to the airport before the sun was up.
Which FYI is already getting later and later…
It actually has/will take me the better part of the day to even fly out of the gigantic state. I have a doozy of an itinerary…
6am-6:54 Fairbanks to Anchorage
8:00-9:30 Anchorage to Juneau
1:30-4:30 Juneau to Seattle
5:30-9:40 Seattle to Denver
So here I am killing time on my +4hr layover in Juneau.
Knowing I had to be up at 4am, and would be traveling for around 15hrs today, I made a plan.
2. Always check in early and snatch up an aisle or window seat ASAP. Everybody knows middle seats are for weenies.
3. Always bring snacks. I also packed two tortilla pb&j’s, plus my water bottle. Tiny snack packs on the flights are a joke and paying $8.50 for a bag a trail mix is bonkers. Not to mention this itty bitty airport in Juneau only has vending machines 😦
4. I have my kindle, a book, my iPod (stocked with movies and tv shows) and obviously my phone. It’ll be a long day but at least I can rotate entertainment… After-all watching toddlers torment their exhausted parents only provides so much “reality tv” to watch in the terminal.
I still have an hour to kill with apparently a delay tacking on more time… I think I’ll troll Pinterest.
Cross your fingers I make all my connections! Can’t wait for Colorado 🙂
How do you survive airports? Any favorite airports with good shops or restaurants?
