#TravelTuesday Our Trip Down South for Chicken Fried Steak

The Polaris was looking like tropical Beverly Hillbilly’s, filled with colorful coolers and bright plastic baskets. We had both wrapped up our morning work and it was time to make our way south.¬† I was planning to get to First Aid Training down south but Shirlee who was managing the First Aid Training at Black Orchid Restaurant texted me they were going to be wrapping it up at 3:30 so I would not have time to make it.

I immediately got assimilated into Cowboy’s errand run. He had to do some banking, unload the Polaris at at Banana Beach Resort, get to Lone Star and of course stop for a drink at Lola’s Pub along the way.

While waiting for Cowboy Doug at Belize Bank 2 guys stopped and asked if I was having a yard sale, I got an lol when I told them as much as I would not mind a few extra bucks, my buddy would get pissed if I sold all his stuff and I was pretty sure they did not want my party dresses ūüôā I sat and listened to music while I wanted then Lopez stopped to chat and Cowboy was done.

Shirlee’s update for¬† yesterday’s First Aid Program training.

While at Lorne Star running Cowboy’s last errand we were able to slow down and enjoy some chicken friend steak and key lime pie for Dessert – yum. Hymie even remembered that Cowboy likes his chicken fried with an eg on top. After we ate we were sitting around chatting when Judy Ann and Tom and they told us how great the training went.

Below is Judyann’s write up on what took place at their restaurant.

Black Orchid Restaurant in San Pedro would like to thank the Belize Red Cross and all of the Volunteers who took time from their schedules to train our staff and others in the practice of CPR.  The class was educational, informative and we even had a little fun.  We all feel more confident about our skills in responding to an emergency related to choking, seizure and heart failure.  We would be happy to host another training in the future.

So are there any tricks to getting upgraded from economy class? Most times there are no tricks of the trade, it is often by being entitled to an upgrade if you are a very frequent flyer with an upgrade-able fare, and once in a while it is a little bit of luck. A lot of the following are also contingent on luck as it isn’t really possible to bet on which flights are going to be wildly over or under sold on any given day. That being stated, these are the top 10 ways to get upgraded that I see as an airline gate agent most often: Top 10 Ways to Get Upgraded on a Flight.¬†
