My flight from Roanoke, Virginia to Madrid, Spain had a stop over in Atlanta. The first flight had a hiccup where the airplane door would close but a sensor would not trigger. Nothing like a good welcoming sign to start your trip. Eventually after staying on the tarmac for about 20 minutes past schedule, the pilot got out and fixed the issue from the outside, came back in and we were on our way.
I just made my first friend and fellow peregrino on the Camino in Atlanta.
After we land, I clear customs easily within 10 minutes of waiting in line to going to the baggage claim. The only part that slightly concerns me is when the airport announces that they took one of the baggage trucks and delivered it to the wrong terminal. But after 30 minutes, the situation is resolved. I have my bag that contains my poles and knife (hence the checked bag) and I’m heading out to figure out how to get from Madrid, Spain to St. Jean Pied de Port, France.
Round trip ticket: $1100 without the $400 mile waiver I had.
Lunch: $9.01 (Overpriced Qdoba at the airport)
