Adventures to and in Texas: Volume 1

I shall start this blog off with a positive note and say that my flight over was fairly relaxing and not a bad trip at all. The first plane I was in had a good amount of open space and even though I was sitting next to someone else it was a short flight so I dealt with it while others on the plane shifted to empty seats so that they had more room. Although it was a short flight we were given "breakfast", which was a ham and cheese sandwich, and was very tasty at the time. On my second flight I rode on a double decker airplane, which was a first, and the plane was extremely empty compared to the first flight. I had a whole row of seats to myself which gave me plenty of room to stretch out. Each seat also had its own television monitor with a variety of movies and shows that you can watch. It was sweet to watch what I wanted to watch. I watched four movies: 127 Hours, Eat Pray Love, Switched (I think thats what it's called...with Jennifer Aniston), and Going the Distance. Tried to sleep but that of course didn't come easy. Once again some pics from my experience. :)

My Screen!
My Row of Seats (Extra stretch room!!)
The pillow, blanket, headphones, toothbrush, and toothpaste set up that was on every seat.

My large dinner tray.
My dessert with my "evening tea".

This next few pictures are of my view out the window at one point. It was the ocean iced over. I don't know where we were, but it was gorgeous and I found it interesting because it was one of those things that I have only seen on TV.

Finally, a very interesting apple and pear chutney with aged cheddar and tomato sandwich. It was interesting for sure, but it was yummy! Also, notice how tiny the coke is?


  1. Ugh! I'll have more patience later and will work on my editing skills.

  2. Those ice pictures are super cool. A British Airways flight was where I first experienced couscous and I thought it was disgusting (it was dry and looked like little pustules). I since have grown to like it but can no longer have it. Bummer. Hope you have fun at the wedding!

  3. Thank you for the neat story. I have never flown on a double decker jet before so that would be a fun experience. I like all the extra on your seat. You're own toothbrush and toothpaste, how thoughtful. I would love evening tea with a meal and only do it when eating Chinese. The ice was beautiful. How many seat in your row? It looks like it goes on forever.

  4. By the way, Lorby is I, Jearise.

  5. I figured you were Lorby Jearise! :) There were actually 3 seats in my section before the walkway, then 7 more seats with a walk way in between. Still 3 seats is a decent amount of room to have to spread out!
