Although it was my first visit to Montreal I couldn’t stay long or see too much of the city but I was okay with that because my main priorities for the weekend was to see THIS GIRL and to be there for the most memorable day of Work BFF’s life (so far).
The wedding ceremoney was at the most breath taking church (cathedral?) I have ever seen!
So remember how I mentioned before that I wasn’t able to go to the wedding because of the crazy costs of the flights and how we got a great deal with some buddy passes from our friend who works for an airline and was going to the wedding as well? Well… there is one stipulation with buddy passes. You fly stand-by.
So 3am rolls around and we are all at the wedding looking something like this…
…and making plans to go to some type of after-hour-shin-dig when we get a phone call from the friend who arranged our flight.
“uhhh…. Guys…. Were not getting on the flight I originally thought. Change of plans. We need to be at the airport at 4:30”.
So we rush back to the hotel (en route Leah has a drunken french argument with the ass-hole cab driver - awesome) and throw our stuff in our suitcases. We packed in such a rush that I left my bathing suit in the closet. Grab another cab and hurry our drunken and tired selves to the airport.
We catch a flight to Toronto.
FYI – a flight directly from Montreal to Calgary only takes about 5 hours. We travelled for almost 12 hours.
After what seemed like the longest day of my life, I went home and slept for 13 hours straight.
Flying Stand-by? Not so awesome…
