Back to Copenhagen
My trip home this October was everything. I got to surprise my whole family, snuggle with my fur babies for 2 weeks straight, attend my cousin’s wedding, dress up as John Darling at Mickey’s Halloween Party, and soak in all the Vitamin D in preparation for the Copenhagen winter (#stillnotprepared). But, all good things must come to an end. (And everyone must use that cliche at some point in their life.)
Gonna miss these two beauties.
Lilo watched me pack while simultaneously sleeping and guarding her ball. She’s talented. Luke was there too, off DERP-ing somewhere in the background as he always is.
My flight out of LAX was at 6pm. Mark actually bought a dirt cheap ticket to Vegas just so could hang out with me in the lounge. He also managed to hook me up with a business class upgrade! This meant my own little pod with lots of room to spread out my school things and get to assignments and readings I’d been neglecting for the past two weeks.
But then they brought around the wine…
And the food…
And MORE food…
And then I saw that they had Mad Max in the movie listings…
So basically, I watched Mad Max, ate grapes and cheese, and then fell asleep for five hours. Schoolwork? What schoolwork?
I woke up just in time for the orange mood lighting.
Then breakfast and Veep!
This was probably the best airplane meal I’ve ever had: cheesy eggs on top of a buttery biscuit. Paula Dean woulda approved. (You know, if she wasn’t too busy being racially insensitive and generally uncouth.)
I had a 3 hour layover in Heathrow, and once I did the whole terminal switch and security re-do, I hung out in the British Airways lounge.
Just one more hour and a half in the air and I’d be home. Well, not “home, home” but my home away from home. You know what I mean. (My mama likes to refer to it simply as “school.”)
I had a ton of pen pal goodies waiting for me when I finally got back to my flat around 8pm. Including the beautiful doozy of a quote from my friend Alice. A very apropos way to start my next big chunk of time in Copenhagen.
