Leaving Colorado

So here we are at the Denver airport. We have finished our two weeks with my parents and are finally on our way to Honduras. 

The last few weeks have been fun; we've seen old friends and my mom had surgery and the packing, Omigoodness, the packing.

We got down to three perfectly packed suitcases. I didn't think it was possible and we had to make some really hard decisions but it's done. Unfortunately,  the tea of deliciousness didn't make it,  but I highly doubt we would be drinking hot tea in Honduras anyway. 

Last night I went online to check on our flight.  Well it's a good thing I did. Instead of logging on and seeing a flight from Denver to Miami and Miami to San Pedro Sula, there was a flight to Los Angeles and Los Angeles to Miami and Denver to Miami on a different day and all sorts of screwiness. Insert panic here.  So I called the airline,  and sure enough,  they were seeing the same thing I was seeing,  but they couldn't tell me why.  O now that's comforting.  Many calls and holds and transfers later,  it turns out they no longer fly that route and switched us to another flight. An earlier flight. Without contacting us.  Imagine if I hadn't checked last night,  we would have gotten to the airport today and missed our flight by two hours. 

Remember how we were just in Los Angeles?  Guess we are going back.  That's right.  We are flying from the middle of the country to the west coast so we can fly to the east coast. I think I know why the Airlines are going broke. So that was a fun little adventure to deal with. 

If you have been following the news, you know Colorado has been experiencing quite a lot of rain. This hasn't affected our area, but today we had to drive to Denver in the middle of a torrential downpour. We now feel prepared for what Honduras has to offer in the way of a rainy season.

Hopefully we won't have any more adventures on the way,  but if we do,  I'll be sure to let you know.

  1. The same thing happened to my aunt the week we got back. She was flying to England and thank goodness she checked bc they changed her flight to 5 hours earlier!! She was in a panic too. Hope you had a safe trip. Looking forward to the Honduras blogs! If you ever want to make a trip to Nicaragua let us know - we'll be neighbors!
