Love this! Thank you. Just what I needed as I was just yesterday mourning not being able to travel this past year. This helps. Enjoy your journeys, wherever they may take you, even if just on your couch! Jane
Glad to hear that dear Jane!
Thank you for your positive comment! 😊
Lots of great ideas for my virtual pleasure 😊
Thank you for your comment! 😊
Good try, it’s like enjoying a virtual box of chocolate, there’s something missing 🙂
lol! Well said! Exactly!
Thank you for your comment!
My next post will be about Disneyland…
Cool, When are you gonna post it?
After I write it 🙂 I just posted on Wednesday, so probably middle or end of this upcoming week.
I have certainly enjoyed these virtual trips during the pandemic! Soon, I will be seeing Vancouver from the air and inside an airport. Yay?
YVR is my favorite airport! (I guess because when I get there, I know I’m home! Lol)
It’s small and cute.
You can try your first Timmies at YVR too! That’ll be fun! I love their double chocolate donut and white hot chocolate! Just ask them to heat up the donut for you for 10 sec.
Thanks for the tip! I’ll see what I can do but that sounds like a lovely thing to do after Customs Hell 😬
You’re right! YVR cutoms people are usually fair and nice, but I’ve never flew to Calgary before.
Thank God! London customs was usually hell so I was bracing myself for something similar. I won’t need to do customs at YYC because it will be a local flight. Thanks for all the tips! I’m in the stressful final stages and every little bit helps! 😊
Don’t worry about it. Check your email!
I’ll also make sure to flaunt my brand new post-Brexit UK passport at customs! That should make them happy since it was only released last month!
