The good thing here is you can clear US immigration in Vancouver. Everything worked ok, and we had a bite for breakfast in the airport at Tim Hortons. Apparently a Canada favourite.
Flight to Denver was all fine, and arrived a few minutes early. Unfortunately, our onward United flight from Denver was delayed, delayed then delayed again. My Polish traveling companion – Grumpy Grumpowski – wasn’t impressed of course ! Five and a half hours late, we finally left, getting back to Tampa some time after 3.00am (who cares what specific time it was). After an eternity waiting for our baggage, we finally got back to the house around 415am. I don’t remember the last time I got in at 415am !! 😴😴😴😴😴😴😴
All in all, despite the flight delay, it was a fantastic trip. So glad we did it.
