Today was a very exhausting day. I woke up at 4:30am to leave for the airport at 4:45am. I had to be at the Toronto airport at 5:30am. I was very tired when I woke up because I went to bed after midnight. Thankfully my Dad made sure I was up on time for us to leave. I am also grateful that we didn’t have hardly any traffic on our drive to the airport. Though probably because it was so early but it’s always good to not have any traffic when you are catching a flight to go somewhere.

I think I ended up arriving at 5:45am but everything was fine because there was not even a line when I got to the check in counter which was great! My check in went well. After I checked in I went through customs and then I found my gate for my first flight. My first flight to Atlanta left at 7:29am. I was quite surprised how small the first plane was. I even had to walk onto the plane from the ground which was a first for me at the Toronto airport. There were only four seats across so it was a small plane.

I flew with Delta airline and the flight was 2 hours and 17 minutes. I arrived in Atlanta at 9:46am. I had about an hour layover in Atlanta so I was a bit concern with my connection because I heard Atlanta has quite a large airport however everything was fine and I even had some time to wait for my next flight. I was quite surprised that the second plane was larger than the first and my second flight was shorter then my first flight. On my second flight there were five seats across and the plane was longer too.

I left Atlanta at 11:05am and arrived in Tampa at 12:20pm which was actually 20 minutes earlier then when it was suppose to arrive. I am so grateful that both of my flights went well and also my connection in Atlanta went well too! I was a bit concerned that I would have to wait for Kim since I arrived earlier but Kim was right there waiting for me when I got downstairs! It was so good to see her when I arrived!

I definitely felt the heat when I arrived in Florida! I think it was 30c when I arrived and it was only around 12c when I left home. We went to the Cracker Barrel restaurant for lunch. I haven’t been to that restaurant in a while so it was a nice treat. After lunch we went to the grocery store and then we went to Kim’s house. I stayed in a very nice bedroom. I was actually the first person to use their guest bedroom and what a blessing it was.

The rest of the day I just stayed at Kim’s house and relaxed because I was exhausted from my travels (I even took a nap). I just wanted to thank everyone who has prayed for my trip to Florida. I would like to thank-you for praying for safe travels and a good connection at the Atlanta airport. I am so glad that everything went well today! I am excited to be here in Florida and see what God has in store for my time here!
