when we got our tickets to hawaii we flew allegiant which is basically the bare-bones airlines.
they charge extra for any kind of convenience.
we would have to pay $40 extra if we wanted seats next to each other, so we passed on that.
i wasn't really happy about the idea of taking a 6 hour flight next to two strangers, but i didn't think much about it--i just thought i would listen to music or doodle in my notebook and keep to myself.
i ended up sitting to two wonderful older women who ended up opened up their life to me and let me share mine. i know more about those ladies than i know about many of my friends,
it was such an inspiring flight that made me want to strive harder to get outside myself in the hopes that i will learn and be inspired by the wonderful people that live on this earth.
