|Richard & Stacy's Round the World Trip 2001|
Friday, May 11, 2001.
We started out at 4am on Friday, May 11th at home in Coquitlam. The flight to Amsterdam came in two parts - flying first from Vancouver to Chicago, then Chicago direct to Amsterdam.
In Chicago we discovered that United has a separate lounge for their customers flying first class internationally... who knew?
While the first leg (Vancouver-Chicago) was in a plain old 737, the second leg (Chicago-Amsterdam) was in a 777... and the first class seats are amazing, like little pods with every toy you can think of, including being able to lay out flat like a bed!
We arrived in Amsterdam around 8am in the morning on the 12th - the second day of our trip.
