Hi folks! Today’s entry is gonna be pretty short, mainly because all I did was travel. But also, because I came down with a cold yesterday and need to get to bed.
I started yesterday by checking out of my Orlando hotel, since my flight wasn’t until the evening I left my bags at the hotel for safe keeping and headed over to Disney Springs to watch a movie. I didn’t get to see much of Disney Springs, but it looks like a cool shopping area. There was something that smelled so good at one point… like garlic and butter! Oh man, I wanted to hunt it down!
After the movie I caught the shuttle back to my hotel, and then the Magic Shuttle to the airport. I was flying Lufthansa and I gotta say I really like that airline. They still have people at the desk to check you in, not just a self-serve kiosk. I was flying business class so I got to hang out in Club MCO, which is a special waiting area complete with free snacks and drinks. The best part is that the chairs there are comfortable!
I loaded on the flight, and Lufthansa actually boards it Business and First Class last, so there was no watching for spectacular facial hair this time. The truth is, I pretty much got in my seat and slept, basically for the whole eight-hour flight. I had to switch planes in Frankfurt, which was a little weird because we had to go all the way out and through customs before getting you bags checked again. It was a pretty long wait, and I barely made it to my flight on time. I also slept for that whole flight…
Once to the airport I got my bags and caught a water taxi to my hotel. That part was pretty cool! I mean, we were booking it! And then all of a sudden, you’re in Venice surrounded by buildings. Its surreal.
I had about an hour before I was to meet with my tour group for the welcome dinner, so I took a shower. Dinner was great, I sat with a mother and daughter from Georgia, and a husband and wife from New York. We had a ruckus good time! I was the first one to leave so I could get some good sleep tonight.
Sorry again for the short post, hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow and will have some more interesting things to talk about. Buona notte!
