United States, imagine nationwide not one airline was allowed in the sky. I was stuck in Savannah for a couple hours after the announcement was made at 530am eastern time and most of you all were still asleep on the west coast. Finally up and running things became a domino effect. Thus next being stuck at DFW, no crews to fly and flights backed up. My arrival gate was A 2 which was literally almost 2 miles from my next departure gate; D2. Thank God for wheelchairs. 3 wheelchairs, 2 electric carts, 2 elevators and the train. I made it to my gate but still another long delay. Smdh but patience is key. It is what it is until it ain’t what it ain’t. Travel these days is filled with more hiccups and rough spots than ever.
In a few weeks myself and the Ghana group will be on our way, followed by the Afro Colombia group a few weeks after, followed by the Black Paris group a few weeks after that. My advice to all travelers whether with me or not; Ask the Lord for what is known to be a virtue; PATIENCE! Stay calm and go with the flow.
