An Iberia parked right across our gate all set for a hop across the pond to Madrid
I still find it so hard to believe that I was actually on a plane for another holiday! It's normally only when I sit on the aircraft that I realise how much preparation went into making the holiday a successful one, but the whole idea of visiting Grenada was not as long and as thorough a process as my trip planning generally is. I chose Grenada because it seemed less touristy (and thereby, less pricey) than other Caribbean islands, not to mention that there was a lot of stuff to do besides just the beachy bits.
Ironically, it appeared Dallas weather wanted to prepare me for this "sun and sand" vacay. The day I left, Dallas had suddenly turned cold, with freezing rain and ice predicted for later in the night. The flight to Miami was uneventful, but boy that Miami airport is a mess! The gates aren't as well separated as in Dallas which means all the waiting areas kind of criss cross into one another, and some gates seem hidden. Anyway the flight to GND took off on time. I bought myself a cheese sandwich for the flight....it was going to be a 3.5 hour flight after all!
