It's midnight which means we've been up for 24 hours. And as I mentioned to Chris tonight, I hope that we've put the worst part of our trip behind us. Because the day's traveling adventure hasn't been pleasant.
For starters, for the first time ever, our flight from Munich to Frankfurt had to abort its landing just after touching down. So just as it's wheels grazed the runway, the pilot gunned it and away we went. As I joked with my co-worker from London, at that very moment, my rates shot up as well.
Then later, we opted to eat at Don Pablos as it's one of our favorite Mexican chains. Well, the guacamole was bland, my chimichanga was overly dry and Chris tacos were quite limpy. Needless to say, we have no plans to return to Don Pablos while we're here in Orlando.
Finally, we arrived at the Portofino Bay Hotel. We were tired and not in the mood for clowning around. Well, not only could we NOT find our room, but the suite wasn't up to par. The carpet seemed grungy, it was badly decorated and quite honestly, not worth the money. As a result, we flipped rooms and downgraded to a Deluxe. Sure, you may think that isn't so bad. But if you knew how large the hotel is, it's like walking the length of a football field to get from the lobby to your room. And when you've been up for a day, well, I had to bite my tongue a few times.
It's now 12:20 a.m. and time for bed. Overall, I suppose you can say it's better that we arrived safe and sound - so looking on the bright side is the way to go. Maybe I'll think that tomorrow after a bit of shut eye.
