Virgin Atlantic (Almost) Saves My Life

Summer Travels, Part Two 

Pairs well with: Badger Golden Glory


After Florida, my husband and I agreed to take my 9-year-old niece to London to visit her mom (my sister), who was working at the Olympics (yes, my sister is much cooler than I will ever be).  We got super cheap tickets on Virgin Atlantic airlines, which turned out to be an AMAZING airline to fly.  During the 8-hour flight, I got two fairly decent meals and my own TV to watch.  (And if you know me at all, you realize those two things are high priority on my top 10 list of essentials for happiness at any given time.)  I think they also take my safety quite seriously, as evidenced by this sign I saw at the check-in counter:

So if you're planning a trans-Atlantic flight anytime soon, might I recommend Virgin Airlines?  Great meals, ready entertainment, and absolutely no chainsaws allowed.  

We made it to London in one piece (ha), and settled in with only a few small missteps along the way, including someone forgetting the passports in a hotel safe and traveling to another hotel almost two hours away, and then getting her niece's phone stolen on the trip back to retrieve said passports - but I'm not naming names.  

Coming up in my next post, I'll tell you all about my savvy little niece and how she schooled her Uncle Shawn.

Badger Golden Glory Ale:

According to their website, a crisp winter's day is the perfect time to enjoy the deliciously balanced peach and melon flavors of this award-winning classic.  Golden Glory is an ideal complement to sticky bbq ribs or an indulgent vanilla cheesecake.  (So how could I not love it?)
