I am back from Chicago and my first long-haul flight for almost 4 years. I started my layover with a visit to Le Pain Quotidien, where I got their oatmeal to go. Then I went down to the beach at Lake Michigan and found a sunny spot to sit down and have my oatmeal breakfast. Oatmeal tastes better with a view like this, don’t you think?
After breakfast I got a fever and had to go back to the hotel. I think it was a natural reaction from my body, telling me that it needed to take it easy and get used to the long haul flights again. I stayed in bed for the rest of the day, but the sun disappeared around noon and the rest of the day brought thunderstorms and rain, so I did not miss anything and I saved a lot of money, because I could not go shopping:)
Luckily I got better in time for the flight back to Copenhagen, and the trip back home was not so busy. Because of the bad weather earlier that day, many passengers had missed their connection flights to Chicago, so we only had 29 passengers in business class.
