Orlando

Rental car nightmare

Rental car nightmare

— Yesterday may have been my worst day of travel ever, at least in terms of what went wrong. Still, it wasn’t all that bad. I wrote yesterday about our flight delay in Phoenix. This dark cloud turned out to have a silver lining, as we were rerouted on a nonstop flight to Orlando — the flight we originally wanted — rather than a connecting flight through Charlotte. The new flight arrived in Orlando on time, putting us only about 90 minutes behind our original schedule.
Florida bound later this week

Florida bound later this week

— Kathryn and I are bound for Florida later this week. We’ll be spending four nights with Kathryn’s aunt in a beachside condo about halfway between Vero Beach and Fort Pierce. I’m hoping to spend the time relaxing, although it remains to be seen whether that will happen. We’ll be arriving and departing in Orlando and renting a car for the duration of our stay. Kathryn’s elite status on US Airways was apparently of no use to us for an upgrade on the eastbound flight.
