The Travel Struggle is SO real.

Last Thursday Kyle and I woke up bright and early at 3AM to jump on a plane and head to Vegas!

Only, things didn’t exactly go as planned….

We get to the airport, wait in a 30 minute line, only to find out we had gone to the wrong airport.

Yes, you read that right. We had 20 minutes until we were supposed to board,

and the airport we were supposed to be at was 40 minutes away. 

{Back Story}

We were heading to Vegas because the boys qualified to play in a golf tournament there.

A few of us girls all decided to tag along with them and enjoy/explore Vegas

on the days that the boys golfed.

Well, last minute all of the girls bailed on me and I was left being the ONLY one.

Kyle and I were supposed to arrive in Vegas around 6am,

We figured this would be great and give us time to explore and see the sights

before the other boys arrived and they all left to head to the golf course.

Well, needless to say we missed our first flight since going to the wrong airport.

Of course we were both super frustrated and disappointed,

the next flight we could catch didn’t arrive in Vegas until around 2:30 

and the boys had a tee time at 3. So there went mine and Kyle’s first day together.

I tried to shrug it off, and remember that my friend Patric would be there around the same time

and him and I could head to the pool and relax while the other boys went to the golf course….

Kyle and I are about to board the new plane and they announce that the AC isn’t working and will have to wait and find a new air craft…30 minutes go by…new aircraft arrives and about 20 minutes later we finally board and are ready to lift off and head to vegas….something is wrong with the plane and maintenance comes out…40 minutes sitting on the plane….we’re FINALLY ready for lift off.

By this time, I’m SO frustrated and just ready to be there.

A couple hours later and the Pilot announces we will be landing in around 15 minutes.

I was THRILLED and so ready to be off the plane.

5 minutes later…the pilot announces we’ve come up to some bad weather and will be circling around for the next 20 minutes until it’s safe to land…

**insert dramatic hysterical angry face here**

30 minutes go by and we’re still circling, at this point i’m trying not to cry…

and then the worst thing happens…

“The weather isn’t clearing up so we’re going to be flying to an airport in Phoenix and waiting there until it’s clear…”


I think y’all pretty much get the gist of how are trip there went…

We stayed in phoenix for over an hour and didnt land in vegas until around 8pm,

then we weren’t allowed to get off the plane because of lightning…

we finally get off and wait for our luggage…

then find out we can’t get our luggage because the people unloading it aren’t allowed to do so because of lightning….

Our ENTIRE first day of vacation flew right before our eyes…

Oh, and it was the ONLY day Kyle and I would’ve had time together just us 2…

One of the other guys had a flight 12 hours after ours and we arrived at the airport the exact same time….

Talk about one hell of a day.

We didn’t get to our hotel until about 10pm and were SO ready for bed.

Check back tomorrow to see if our trip got better…or worse…

xoxo, Monica
