Sur La Rue: Holiday Travel EditionBy Will Lavigne • Dec 23rd, 2010 • Category: Features, Latest
My week started off in Breckenridge, where my roommate Craig McMorris made the above video. I’ve been wanting to ride this rail since I arrived, and we finally did, on the last day of our stay in Breck. After a quick session, it was time to head home.
I was supposed to fly out of Denver at 2 pm but obviously I missed my flight (it was my first time flying!)… They put me on another flight leaving at 12:30am with a 5-hour layover in Philadelphia at the lovely hours of 5am to 9am. From there I flew to Burlington where I’d left my car. After a quick stop by Rome office to say hello, I drove four hours north to Victoriaville, QC to my parents’ place where I will stay for Christmas. It was great!
We were a few people on the 12:30 am flight from Denver going to Burlington. This is what I saw when I woke up from my sleeping spot — a bunch of people laying all over the place. Sleeping in airport sucks but sometimes you can’t really avoid it…you just do whatever you can to be comfortable.
It was worth it though! I’m actually sitting in the living room at my parents’ place right and pretty sure those presents are for me. Merry Christmas!!! (Yes, we celebrate Christmas in Canada!)
