may: spain!


the last few days of april were spent preparing for our anniversary-moon trip to spain!

our trip began on the 30th. we were so excited that we got to the airport four hours early. we ate breakfast, did a crossword, people-watched, bought magazines, anything we could to pass the time. the people-watching part was pretty entertaining, actually, since we happened to be at the airport at the height of the swine flu hysteria (those masks do nothing, people!). of course that's not to say that i didn't bring some air-borne and lots of hand sanitizer with me...

we ate lunch at pop-eyes (it's a weird travel tradition we have) before boarding the plane for our first flight to atlanta. we had a long enough layover there to grab a snack and let our loved ones know we'd made it safely to our next leg of the journey.

the eight-ish hour flight from atlanta to barcelona went smoothly as it could have possibly gone; we both got a little bit of sleep, and we had those little tv screens in the back of the seats in front of us that let you choose what you want to watch and when you want to watch it (they actually had some pretty good movies!). the food was gross, but what can you do? we had to fill out lots of paperwork - the usual stuff with some added bonus materials due to the swine flu - before they would let us off the plane, and then they bused us from the plane BCN...
