1. Buying new DVD for plane trip = $13
2. Buying airfare to Grandma's house = $350
3. Travelling direct from SFO to Victoria = Priceless
Although the airlines have been getting bad press lately, I am ecstatic over the fact that United is now flying direct between San Francisco and Victoria. The headache for years has been navigating through SEA (not difficult, but time consuming) and doing customs (only the dying/dead are allowed to use the elevators to travel up from the basement- no joking!).
Hopefully, those days are over permanently! I will gladly pay more for direct flights, especially since amusing a 2 yr-old for 4-5 hours aboard an airplane or in an airport is not on my top 10 (or 100) 'fun things to do' list. I think I'm going to write United a thank-you note.
***UPDATE: Russell and I will be coming up on Saturday, July 19th and leaving on Sunday, July 27th. Dan will likely be in Austin again that week.***
