It’s day 3 of my 30 day journey, and I’ve already been to JFK all three days, which is an hour and a half commute (each way) from my apartment in Manhattan. After going to bed at 230a last night, I left my apartment this morning at 7a EST, and I won’t get to Portland until 9p EST. I just landed for a quick stop in Washington DC, then it’s on to Long Beach, and finally a transfer to Portland. Oh, and did I mention I have a middle seat? It’s going to be a long day, with a very sore neck. But I’ve never been to Portland or Seattle before, so I’m very excited! Plus, three different flights means three rounds of free snacks and drinks. That’s great news for someone whose food budget is basically a bag of quarters.
The Long Beach airport was a joke. Seriously I think there were about 3 gates, all seated in the same area. We had to walk outdoors to get to the ramp up to the plane. There were two brown sparrows hopping around that apparently “lived” in the airport. Bizarre. I think my parent’s 3 bedroom, 1 story ranch was bigger than this portion of the airport.
