Late Night Flights
We got up pretty early this morning at Jen and Davin's and had cereal for breakfast, along with some juice and bagels. After we ate, we grabbed our last stuff, did some devotions with everyone, and then got in the car again. We drove to Chicago, stopping right away for a bathroom and then stopping again for lunch at Subway and McDonalds. We got to the airport in plenty of time, and found a parking spot, and then took a shuttle bus to terminal 3. We checked our bag, got through security, and then hung around for a bit before boarding our first flight to Tampa. It was a pretty quick flight, only being around two and a half hours long, and built-in entertainment at every seat. After we landed in Tampa, we found out our flight to Miami had been delayed, so we got off and everyone else found a bite to eat while I laid on these giant cushion things I found and rested for awhile. Finally we got onto our plane for Miami, only to have them announce that we couldn't take off because of mechanical issues, and we all needed to transfer planes. We did so, and were in the air in about 30 minutes. We landed in Miami around 11:30, and were outside waiting for a shuttle to the hotel by midnight. After we got to the hotel, most of us took showers, and then I was asleep by around 2am.
