Arrived at Calgary airport safe and sound. The Westjet attendants were as friendly as I remember from years and years ago and made the safety speech as entertaining as possible.
I’m clearly an airport newbie though as in Victoria I didn’t remove my shoes or belt and set off the metal detector and security had to break out their wand.
Then when I arrived I wasn’t sure if my luggage just automatically gets transferred to the new flight or if I had to go get it and check in again. You would think that would be a very obviously solvable situation as it is clearly absurd that I would have to pick up my luggage and check in again. Being as overly cautious as I am though I did that anyway and made myself look a fool to the Westjet check in attendants as they told me to just use the kiosk to print off a boarding pass and go back through security.
Much less painful this time as I removed my belt and shoes and didn’t even set off the metal detector.
Ah well, one of many mistakes I will surely make along this journey!
My next report will probably be from RCMP Depot once I get a little settled in. If I have time.
