As we boarded this flight, I was feeling pretty sad. My fantastic trip was coming to an end. We managed to get very comfortable exit row seats back. We watch a pretty crappy Matt Damon movie, Hearafter. This was a film I wanted to watch in the theater, but once I started watching it on the flight, I just couldn’t stand it. I kept falling asleep, although I wasn’t tired, I was just bored and really didn’t care what happened to these characters.
The food was standard United International Economy fare. While it was tasty and if I had ordered it in a restaurant, I wouldn’t send it back, but I probably wouldn’t go back to that restaurant again. The flight was extremely uneventful. We landed a few minutes early and shuffled our way to Customs and Immigration. While waiting in the Customs line an agent with what looked like a beagle puppy came up and sniffed around us…but then quickly moved over to the dirty American (covered in dirt, not a racist slur here). The puppy then indicated something was amiss in this guys bag. They pulled this young guy out of line very quickly — we were now one space closer to the front of the line — every cloud does have a silver lining.
We had a slightly longer discussion with the Customs Agents than we expected, as we had been on a farm (Bike and Wine Tour) and in close proximity to wild and domesticated animals. After about 3 minutes of additional questions we were allowed through once we promised we wouldn’t visit any farm for 3 more weeks (yeah, you really needed to twist my arm). Our once in a life time trip was over, time to return home and head back to the real world. What a shame.
