|I'm grateful this tiny airport exists!|
- Fly from Port Hardy to Vancouver. The plane is tiny and the view is spectacular.
- Stay overnight in an aiport hotel in Vancouver.
- Fly from Vancouver to San Francisco, and San Francisco to Medford, Oregon.
Travel is very different when you don't live near a major airport! And I'm also traveling to a town without a major airport. The way home is less complicated, because I'm flying from San Francisco -- SF to Vancouver, Vancouver to Port Hardy, in the same day, without staying over in Vancouver.
I'm not complaining! I love travel and I'm always happy to be going anywhere. Unlike many people, I don't even hate air travel. Travel = good.
I'm very happy there's a small airport in town. Otherwise it would take an entire day of travel to get to Vancouver: drive for five hours, arrive at ferry at least an hour in advance, then a two-hour ferry. Then a bus or cab to the airport.
This is a strictly family-visit trip, in keeping with my intention to only travel to visit friends and family for some years.
