You might remember my airport and immigration concerns from a previous story. Ok, so I made it to New York and back, but something happened. Yes it did!
When my boarding card was scanned, the scanner beeped. "Can you wait over here ?". What's wrong now ? What was going on in my head ? They are overbooked, they are going to bump us off. Some cheeky sod has reported us for drug smuggling. Do I look like a terrorist ? Then A's card beeped and I was slightly relieved...at least I don't have to go through this alone.
After what felt like an age (but probably just a couple of minutes), "Can I have your boarding cards ? Here are you new ones. You've been upgraded." OMG! What a relief. Due to my phobia of being singled out at the airport, how we were told we were upgraded was a little uncomfortable and scary.
The photo was taken from our departure gate at Newark airport, as we wait for our seats to be called. The glass window was very dirty so it was not a great photo but you can see New York skyline against the rising sun.
I have used AC Amy Tangerine's for this layout plus some white Thickers that I coloured with a marker pluse 3 Studio Calico asterisk wood veneer that I coloured with embossing powder. And, hurray, I am delighted I managed to include our boarding cards. With online checking, we don't get those very often anymore.
