My arrival in COLOMBIA!!! Part 1

So the day of my departure finally arrived and i must say through all the chaos and preparation, it all went quite smoothly!!!

As daunting as long haul flights can be, i was SUPER excited to start my adventures in Colombia with the British Council.

Arrived at Heathrow with plenty of time to spare, check in my case mountain and pay for my extra case.

Consisted of 2 x 23.3 kg suitcases, hand luggage case and tote style handbag! (Was quite reasonable at $70 for an extra case in comparison to $200 if your case is overweight!!)

After farewell to mama, I went through security and made my way to my gate. As usual, being the magpie that I am, only realized my flight was closing as i’m wandering aimlessly round Boots! MAD DASH to my gate which was miles away I made it to the plane.

After bustling my way through with my insane handbag and rollie-case, mid-way into economy I realized I had ‘Seat Number 7′ and when I looked up at the seat number were in the late 20′s. As I turned around I realized…….

*Drumroll please*

I HAD BEEN UPGRADED TO BUSINESS FIRST!!!! OMG!!!

I scrambled back out of economy like a bat outta hell and settled into my cove ready to lap up the luxuries :D I don’t rightly know how I did it but i’m not going to question fate!

Here are a few sneaky selfies from my flight:

Snoozy Selfie while fully reclined in my cove lounger ❤

Overall it was a very comfy flight with polite service and tasty menu. I thank my lucky stars I can tick ‘FREE FLIGHT UPGRADE’ off my bucket list!!!

THANK YOU UNITED AIRLINES!!!

P.S. Anyone travelling to South America or anywhere in general to be honest, PACK EXTRA CLOTHES IN YOUR HAND LUGGAGE. My main suitcases were delayed by 2 days and if i didn’t have my hand luggage on point, I would have been in fiddle to say the least!!!
