Yay for free internet at YVR! This trip has so far (knock on wood!) been a breeze compared to our last international experience. And I just need to reitterate how much I LOVE Air Canada – back to that later.
After the chaos of yesterday came to a close and we got in the car to our hotel by the airport, I was much calmer. Jeff and I shared a customary mini-moon bottle of Wilson’s Creek Almond Champagne at the Marriott Courtyard LAX and relaxed watching TV until drifting off at about 9pm.
A bright (rather, dark) and early 4am wake up call greeted us this morning and it was nice to already have everything set to go. The shuttle got us to Terminal 2 in about 10 minutes and check in was pretty simple. But the fun really started after boarding our aircraft.
Air Canada has a great movie selection (most airlines these days do) as well as TV, music, etc. But the kicker was for sure the USB port in the back of each seat to charge phones, ipods, etc. BAD ASS! I also got to watch Friends – Air Canada scores again.
Flight was smooth, I slept and listened to TV / Movies. Jeff watched TRON. We got to see Mt. St. Helen’s from above which was cool, and we got to Vancouver right on time at 9:40am. Unfortuneately, our flight to Hong Kong has been delayed an hour, but with the convenient wi-fi and power hook-ups, we can surf the net, charge (or keep charged) our electronics, and even play Bakery Story on android!
Here are a few photos from our day so far – won’t be able to post again till probably 7 or 8pm Hong Kong time tomorrow (15 hours ahead = 4-5am PST)
