A Travellerspoint blog

Off to Ecuador

Monday, 9/27/10. I awoke very early this morning. I’m excited about the trip. I have a few last minute things to attend to, like a few loads of laundry. I tried to log onto the computer, but apparently my wireless service had already put me on vacation. After several phone calls from friends wishing me a good trip, I finished getting ready. Having checked with the airline, I knew my baggage allowance was two 50 lb. bags. So after completing the packing (and I do mean packed), I weighed my suitcases. Woohoo! 48.8 on one and 49.2 on the other. I do have two allowed carryons and they are packed tight also. Even though I have 100+ lbs. of stuff, I feel like I am taking only the bare essentials. I just hope I can haul it all!

Next door neighbor, David, offered to take me to the airport. At the agreed time, he backed his car up in the driveway and we loaded up the bags. I hope I didn’t give him a hernia. I arrived at the airport 2 hours ahead of my flight time. I ate lunch as I didn’t know when I was going to eat again. Then I spent the rest of the wait on the phone.

I flew American Airlines on my frequent flyer points and both the flight from Dallas to Miami and from Miami to Guayaquil was on time and uneventful.
