Leaving New Orleans
We were up at 04:00 to get to the airport.
We got a Lyft to the airport and we thought we were there with more than enough time.
We had to go to the desk as we had two separate flights booked and we wanted to get our bags automatically transferred.
We were at the desk for a while and then once were done, we walked around the side to see the incredible size of the security queue…
We were in the queue for an hour which ended up meaning we were unable to get any breakfast as we were boarding.
The flight was 5 hours or so but felt quite long, especially as we were hungry.
We landed in Seattle and it was finally breakfast time, after 8 hours.
Seattle > Victoria
We had 3 hours to kill at Seattle airport before our flight to Victoria, so it was breakfast time.
We got breakfast from McDonald’s, ate that up and relaxed.
We then got a coffee to kill more time and to wake us up before we got onto the second flight, on a small plane.
We arrived in Victoria and knew we needed to get our work permit from the border guards.
We mentioned we wanted a work permit due to our working holiday visa and we were ushered into another room.
We waited for a bit and then were presented with our permits! This was nice and quick and we are now considered residents of Canada and we can work here also.
We left here shortly after and got the bus to directly outside Linda’s place.
We went inside and saw Linda before we all went out for some food.
We went to the steamship which we went to previously and both of us had the new york strip with whiskey peppercorn sauce and vegetables. Linda had fish and chips.
We got back and all had a conversation for an hour or two before we all got too tired and headed to bed. We have been up for around 20 hours at this point, so we are exhausted!
We aren’t staying here in Victoria but we are just seeing Linda briefly.
