Photos: Getting Back to Dulles Airport

 Our flight home was around 8 in the morning which meant we should have been in the airport by at least seven if not sooner. I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to take an Uber due to it being so early in the morning and being stressed for time. I arranged a Super Shuttle to pick us up, and granted it was more expensive than an Uber, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. The van wasn't super comfortable (also we were the only passengers), the driver was okay, the seats were fine, but the road felt more bumpy than usual. 
But we got to Dulles on time and through the lines with much time to spare. So that counts!

  1. Those shuttles are never comfortable, but at least you made it with time to spare.

  2. Glad you made it on time. That's always a stressful moment but if feels good when you have some spare time at the end.

  3. Oh Adam, you sound like me...I get a big knot in my tummy when it comes to flights and being on time...I would rather be early than running to board. LOL. Last flight I was on was Frontier...omg..what a sorry flight. The planes are too small for the public now. I had a middle seat, my daughter the window, and two daughter on the left and up two rows. I put the arm rest down and the lady that sat in the aisle seat put it up and wallowed all over me the whole flight...yuck, she did not smell clean either. My girls say I am a germ -a-phobe.LOL I just hate sticky body odors or heavy perfumes....help me. :):) Oh by the way, the doors were closed and the steward said we are preparing for take-off and ...this is true...someone knocked on the door and they opened it and let a late family board...gee-zoo, where's the security in that. LOLO. Blessings to you, glad you made your flight. xoxo, Susie

  4. I hate the stress of getting to the airport on time. I would've probably went for the shuttle service too rather than an unknown of a driver. I've enjoyed your trip to DC, thanks so much for sharing.

  5. There is absolutely NO SUCH THING as stress getting to an airport.
    Just bloody well organise yourselves.
    International here is 3 hours for all the security and domestic is now one hour but anyone with any sense gets to the lines at least 2 hours for steadying the nerves.

    1. Also the quicker you are through the rigmarole of clearance etc etc, the more time you have to have a few nips of your favourite potion at the bar. ha ha.
      Of course being intoxicated is a no-go, you don't get on your intended flight, your baggage may enjoy the trip - like Sydney to New York - such a pity you are not at the carousel at JFK to collect it!!!!

  7. Yes, that definitely counts! Nothing more stressful than arriving late at the airport.
