Trip Report Norfolk and Environs: 5 Wk Home Exchange - Mid Ap thru Mid May 2012

Jump to last reply

We arrived two days ago from Southern Califronia via Southwest Airlines to begin our 26th home exchange, our first in Virginia and our first on the East Coast.

Our flight was comfortable enough, seats seemed to provide a bit more leg room than our recent Air Canada flight and boarding was easy. We had low numbers (A19 &20) so there was no problem finding two seats next to each other. The only minor problem was the guy sitting next to me who invaded my personal space first with his legs and his elbow so he could use his laptop. The leg he removed when I politely asked him, but the elbow nudging my shoulder continued all the way to Chicago, our only stop on-route to Norfolk,

Oddly enough or should I say politely enough, the second guy who boarded in Chicago was was easily one and a half times larger than the first guyand never bothered me at all. Oh well, you win some and you lose some or as Seinfield says it all balances out.

(once again, I warn that I am working with a small laptop (my home exchanger's) and I can't find the spell check or can I work the mouse easily!)

More to come. . .
