Day 8 – In Transit

Getting off the ship was very structured, everyone had a designated meeting place and time depending on their flight time. They were running about 30 minutes behind, but we had a 3:45 pm flight, so thankfully we were in no hurry. We went through the ship security, found our bags and then went thru Customs and went outside to find a cab. It was $22.50 to the airport for two people/two suitcases, not too bad, and its only about a 15 minute drive. Once inside the airport though there was more screening and waiting and lines. We had to have our luggage cleared by USDA, and then we checked in & got our boarding passes and dropped off our bags to Delta, and then waited in another long line to go through the standard airport security. Finally made it in, we were hungry and went searching for food – the best vegetarian-friendly option had $12 foccacia sandwiches and $4 sodas, but it was that or nothing, and the food ended up being really good. But we found ourselves in another airport without wi-fi, we had been certain that we would be able to either access free wi-fi or at least paid wi-fi, no such luck, except for brief 5 minute chunks of being able to find a random signal we were still without the interwebs! During the entire week on the ship, we had a total of 60 minutes of internet access that we had purchased, but 1 hour spread out over the entire week between the two us was nothing compared to what we were used to. However, it was actually nice over this past week not to have cell phone service or access to the internet, it felt good to be unplugged. San Juan Airport is one of the most over-crowded airports that we have been in and we were so glad to finally board our plane and get our trip home started. Fortunately we have a direct 5-hour flight on Delta – we can’t wait to get home to our kitties and our own bed! Side-note, we are finally on the interwebs! Delta has GoGoAir and we are able to get Wifi for the last 90 minutes of our flight because we are finally over land.
