Heading home to DetroitFebruary 28 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 37 °F
We arrived at the airport Terminal 2 for Delta, checked the bags in and Klaus went to drop the Hertz car off. He sooned discovered that Hertz rental is closed in terminal 2, which meant driving it to terminal 1 and getting on a bus back to terminal 2. Already tight on time we ventured to security, what a debacle!!!
Step 1 - Tickets needed to be reissued because it was no longer a direct flight. I discovered my TSA pre check was not on the boarding pass, only to be told I’m getting a random 2nd screening.
Step 2- Go thru passport control - why in the world do u need a passport to be checked to leave. It was already checked and rechecked just to get the boarding pass.
Step 3- Go thru security- get bags rechecked because of a curling iron being considered an electronic device.
Step 4- Go to gate - have passports rechecked and then I’m told I need additional screening again. They take me behind a fake wall, check all my stuff for explosives, remove the insoles of my shoes and pat my legs down. Like why the heck would the security machine not pick up any of that stuff how unnecessary!!
Step 5- Scan the boarding pass at the gate, red flag again!!! The girls had to figure out what to enter into the computer to finally let me on board.
Step 6- Sit in our seats and wait to take off, let’s hope we have enough time for our connection in Atlanta.
Step 7- Landed in Georgia, got to try out our global entry for the first time, so worth it!
Step 8- Delta lounge waiting for final leg to Detroit. We are pooped out.
Step 9- Landed in Detroit, had to sit on the plane while they figured out what was wrong with the walk way bridge. Patiently waiting for the doors to open!
Step 10- Long ride home in the Metro Car, huge traffic jam. Then we pull into the sub and the driver lost all power to the car. He made it to the house with no lights and had to call a tow truck. Big problem is that the luggage was stuck in the car. 😢
Conclusion: We had an amazing adventure the past 6 weeks, so many memories made!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone. XoxoRead more
