On the plane!

Well, we hopefully had the only glitch we are going to have. All fine now, and we are settled into our seats on the plane destined for Miami. A few hour layover and then it's overnight to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

So, what happened? Well, we are using miles for the air portion of the trip. We cashed in a ton and are First Class all the way and back which is key for Rebecca's back (not to mention super comfy for me). About two months ago, American changed the time of the return flight from Buenos Aires to Miami. This left us with a 4 hour layover from 4 AM to 8 AM at the Miami airport. So, I called American and changed out return to come back through Dallas. No cost and no problem.

Or so we thought.

Fortunately, my ticket was changed perfectly and I was able to check in our 3 duffel bags on my ticket. This was key because we were quickly approaching the deadline to check bags at all and Rebecca's ticket wouldn't print. it took two agents and 10 minutes to sort it out. Not really a horrible issue or in the end all that worrisome, but when you are heading out on an adventure, you want the adventure to be during the adventure portion!

Oh, and I know this won't be the only hiccup. I can hope though!
