Our flight was scheduled to leave Newark International Airport at 11:30 (23:30) but we allowed 4 hours to clear through check-in and TSA security lines.
Luckily for us, we cleared both lines within 30 minutes of our arrival. We decided to have a snack at McGinley’s Irish Pub to help pass some of the remaining time before we could board our plane. Kayla enjoyed her very first potato skins and I enjoyed a Jamison Old Fashioned.
Finally we boarded the plane, and thanks to our TAP Portugal pilot and navigation crew, we had the smoothest take off, ride and landing I have ever experienced. I was very happy for this as this was Kayla’s first plane flight.
I snapped many, many photos in and around the plane because Nate, my 11-year-old grandson had requested them. This blog post is two-fold, the first to chronicle our way to the Way and second for Nate.
P.S. from Kayla;
This was my first plane ride. It was very extraordinary. On the plane we were served a rice and vegetable dish for dinner. We were also served a vegetable sandwich with granola bars and raisins for breakfast. The bathroom was tiny but do-able. Every time Nana and I got the chance we took pictures of everything we could for my younger brother Nate.
