Expect the Unexpected While Traveling

I'm on my way to France to team up with my bestie for two weeks of eating, drinking, and general merriment. We decided to meet in Lyon for a few days before heading to Burgundy and then on up to Paris. We are well prepared with reservations and the like.

Last night as I went to bed I got a text from Air France. "Your flight from Paris to Lyon has been cancelled. We are sorry for the inconvenience."



Not what you want to hear at 11pm on the eve of your vacation. Sigh. Turns out Air France has striking pilots (surprise!). I sent Forrest a text letting her know I would have to grab a train ticket and not to pick me up at Lyon's airport. Luckily she hadn't gone south yet and so we switched our plan to have her pick me up in Paris. Road trip!

When I got to the SeaTac this morning and glanced at my watch I noticed the battery had died. I also seem to have packed the headphone jack to my noise-canceling headset in my checked bag. If that's my "things happen in three" I'll happily take that and chalk it all up to first-world problems.

2 hours later...

I just found out that Delta has discontinued it's in air duty free shopping. WTF?? That is one of my highlights of international travel! NOW I'm feeling a bit rattled!
