Day Off – Woo Hoo!

I got my day off this week.  I was able to go out to my little condo in Michigan City.  I haven’t been here in a little under three months.  It’s nice to see that it is still standing!

I put up my tree for Christmas.

I also spoke with my travel agent this afternoon and booked my flight to Barcelona at the end of October 2018.  I am going on a transatlantic cruise on what will be the brand new Symphony of the Seas.

I booked a “premium economy” ticket — extra leg room — for the flight.  I will fly from Chicago to JFK Airport in New York, have a layover of just under two hours, and then fly from JFK direct to Barcelona.  Purchasing this upgraded seat ticket came out about $200 cheaper than the regular economy ticket on another airline from Chicago direct to Barcelona.  Heck, for an upgraded seat and a couple hundred dollars less, I’ll take a layover at JFK.

Finally, I also booked my hotel room for the day before the cruise.  I am staying at the same hotel that I did before my transatlantic cruise on the Harmony of the Seas:  the Crowne Plaza Barcelona Fira Center.  Now, all I have to do is live that long. 🙂
