I hope to have a full trip report up of at least my IAD-LIM business class flight, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a quick trip report of our travels Sunday (and into Monday) as we went from Cleveland to Washington Dulles to Lima to Cuzco for our trip to Machu Picchu and Peru

It all started so well – a quick trip to the Airspace Lounge Cleveland for a little lunch and planespotting

Then… a slight mechanical delay turned into a 5 hour delay and eventual flight cancellation. Thankfully I had brought 2 day passes to the United Club Cleveland!

Made it to Dulles about 5 hours late but still with about 90 minutes to spare before our flight to Lima took off. Booking long layovers with separate tickets FTW

I was pretty tired but hey… why not dinner! Salmon was quite tasty

It’s been a blast so far!  Look for a lot more Peru themed posts from me over the next few days and weeks!
