I just happened to hear our names being called over the paging system a few gates over. We were the last two people to board and they were about to close the door. Whew! We made it on to the plane and were on our way to Montreal.
Yeah, there were three people working. Again, we were the LAST TWO people to board the plane. But we were finally on our way to PEI, so who cares?
Flying over the island was beautiful. We even saw our hotel from the air, which was pretty sweet. Anyway, we landed and went to claim our luggage in the teeny, tiny Charlottetown airport.
Only, our luggage wasn't there. I repeat: NO LUGGAGE! We were not the only ones that didn't have luggage, so we didn't feel too badly.
We got our rental car and loaded our carry-ons into the backseat. Did I mention our rental was a Volvo with a sunroof? It was niiice.
We headed to our hotel, the Dalvay by the Sea. (More on this tomorrow.) We checked in, then headed out to find some food and some supplies to get us through the night and next day until we got our luggage.
It was a shaky start to our trip, but things went uphill from there. We are working on a list of the top ten things we learned about travel to Canada and when it is done, I'll post it here.
