Yes, I flew with United. It was fine. And they give you ice cream after your meal. Much win.
I’m glad my phone knew that a time change happened in the middle of the night because I sure didn’t.
I left at 6.45a to catch the metro and then the train to the airport. My Airbnb host was actually awake to see me off! He said he was afraid I was late (because he forgot to wind back his watch) and I had no idea what he was talking about. Turns out Belgium also has time changes!
If you’re planning on taking the train a lot, buying a 10 trip rail pass is cheaper than buying individual tickets (I left it with my friend so he could use the last two trips).
I sat on the plane around some amusing American women. They had traveled from Rwanda (for a conference) and were on the way back home to Nevada. I did not envy their journey home haha. They had flown into Brussels the day before and probably got back home late at night (they also had a one hour drive from the airport in Nevada).
I sat next to a nice Canadian man from Vancouver, so I was able to talk to him about my trip there earlier this year. Twas nice ^_^. And here was when I really realized that I don’t speak loudly. At one point, I asked him a question and I felt like I was yelling, but he still didn’t hear me xD. So, I guess on a plane, I need to shout louder than I was yelling. Maybe I need to do that on land too xD.
The other thing I realized is that I don’t like big cities, which would explain why I wasn’t a huge fan of Brussels or Rome (I wasn’t in London long enough to decide. Seville was okay). I was told I wouldn’t feel the same about Paris because it’s Paris, but we’ll see haha.
I briefly mentioned it in the first Belgium blog post, but I’ll announce it again: I have an Etsy shop! I’m selling prints and greeting cards of some of the shots I took while traveling. A percentage of the proceeds go to Operation Underground Railroad, an organization dedicated to fighting child sex trafficking. Check out my shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JadeGracePhoto
Thank you for following along my adventures!
