Road Warrior Madam July 2006

Oh yes I am a slightly weary traveller. I always knew that the glamour of travel would wear off but it was just a matter of when. And then every now and then I get re-energized.
Today I'm on a Harmony air flight. It's been a nice experience because my carry on luggage actually fit the "does your bag" fit metal structures they often have at boarding gates. It might not have been nice if it was slightly larger and I had to check it.
The check in desk commented on my readiness. Yes my passport was out, yes I had the zip code to the address I was staying in the USA, yes my tickets were in order, no my luggage wasn't overweight, yes the custom forms were all filled in.
The seats were generous given that my knees weren't touching the front (I stand 5' 6 1/2 inches)
They actually have me a breakfast wrapped burritto with no meat . A coffee. A water. And said hi.
And I don't even think they charged for blankets but I had my dual purpose cozy poncho with me in case it did get chilly.
The head/loo/toilet/washroom/rest didn't smell of overused chemicals.
A real person did the safety display versus relying on a video presentation.
And everyone I had contact with was pleasant.
Plus I booked the flight just 2 days ago and managed to get to Oakland California for a squeak over $300.00 including all taxes.
