hotel breakfast, early checkout, and montreal traffic


I awoke at 5 a.m. this morning and finish packing. Not that I had anything to pack because I brought so little with me. However, with the little bit of souvenir I brought, my luggage is now quite heavy.

Went down to breakfast and watched sports news recaps as I ate.

Afterwards, I went back upstairs and looked at clock. Hm, should I leave now? It's 7:45 a.m. My flight doesn't leave until later, but I do have to give it two hours due to customs, etc.

I decided to leave.

Went downstairs with luggage and checked out. And then walked out and merged with all the Montreal commuters.


My walk to the bus stop was about a couple of blocks, and since I located it yesterday, I had a pretty leisurely walk toward destination.


By the time I walked to the bus stop, it was about 8:00 a.m. And the airport bus pulled up right in front of me. Perfect.

The 747 Airport Express accepts exact cash in coins ($7) or the monthly, or day pass(es).

I deposited my exact change and on we went.

The bus weaved through Montreal morning commute traffic, making constant stops to pick up more air-bound passengers. Some with almost no luggage and some with excessive baggages. Just saying...

It took us almost 45 mins to arrive at airport.

Aside from the traffic, the airport seems a bit farer than I remembered. Good thing I allowed myself so much time. By the time I arrived at the airport, I promptly went into customs (I have already checked-in on my flight from hotel last night) and declared..etc.

That took 15 mins because the guy in front of me was taking forever and then because I didn't fill out the declaration form, I had to go and do that before coming back to the front of the line. Note to self, good job in coming to airport early.

I went through customs and then directly into sephora (?) Actually, it's the duty free shop. I brought a bottle of ice wine for our next fab gathering at Cindie's house. ;) Hopefully it remains intact during flights.

Currently waiting until later to board and then have to connect in another airport before coming back to SF.

More later...miss you guys! Hugs!
