This morning we were up around 8am to have our final free pancake breakfast. The shuttle bus to the airport then picked us aong with some others at about 8.50. At the airport we gave in the only sort of confirmation we were sent but were then told that at the time Andy's cardwas declined so our reservation is still there but we must pay...having already paid once! They also said it would be unlikely we could get the fare we paid originally (110 pounds) and instead it would be over $500 each! After a lovley American Airlines lady made a lot of calls, and id made a panic call to mum haha we found we would get the same fare and just had to pay again... Good job we got to the airport early.

The flights went quite well. The first was only three hours long which was a bonus considering we thought it was going to be six and the second was only an hour and a half and not 3 hours, on the tinest plane i have ever seen with a row of 2 seats and then a single row of seats across the isle. I had to duck so i wouldnt butt the ceiling!

In between we had a stop over in Chicago airport for about an hour where we got some food.

At Baltimore airport we had a bit of a wait for shuttle to come to take us to our hostel in D.C but eventually we got there, and in time before check in shut! However, we had no reservation! When we looked at our confirmation, the dates we booked where in December for some crazy reason... He said we will have been charged for the first night then because we didnt turn up but instead of making us pay just for that night again, he deducted that from the price and then gave us a private room for the normal dorm price! We got a great deal!

We settled in, went over to the shop for food and then got to bed as we were all so tired!
