I can never really decide if I like layovers or not. Maybe it just depends on the airport. Some airports suck. Your food choices are pre-packaged shelf sandwich or unbelievably greasy pizza. There is nothing to look at or do. That's when I hate layovers. However, layovers at decently sized airports are not so bad. Today I'm at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. I have a 3 hour layover before heading on to my final destination. I spent my first hour and 15 minutes walking and exploring the airport. I figured since I probably am not going to make it to the gym today, I had better take advantage of this opportunity to at least get a little bit of exercise. There are a lot of good food options here, and it took me all that time just to pick a place to have lunch. Mexican? Stir-fry? Sandwiches? Sushi? (haha, I didn't actually consider sushi...I haven't braved up THAT much.) I finally went with California Pizza Kitchen. I had the Thai Chicken Pizza. If they'd had their Jerk or Chipotle pizzas, I'd have probably had those instead, but I'm glad they didn't because it meant I tried something new. It was really yummy! I sent D a pic and he said it looked weird. Maybe it was weird, but who cares. It was delicious.
Only 40 minutes left of my 3 hour layover It's actually gone by a lot faster than I expected. Boarding should be starting pretty soon. Onward to Michigan and family!
