A not so smooth start

Our flight...a long one. First from Amsterdam Schiphol to London Heathrow. Then from Heathrow to Miami, and from Miami to CancĂșn. We barely made it. Heathrow was fine with the connecting flights, easy to find (the purple signs help a lot ;), reasonably fast through passport controll, even though we had to catch the skytrain to the gate we still had a little time to spare. Miami was a disaster though. We only had two hours to get to the connecting flight...it took us 1 hour and 50 minutes just to get through passport control, bag check, another check etc and we barely made it...We weren't the only ones though, a lot of people were worried because of their connections...and then we had the luck we didn't have to pick up and check in our baggage again because we flew with British Airways instead of American Airlines... I really felt sorry for the people who did have to go through all that...

Some of our group even missed the flight because of the whole...procedure. A stressfull start unfortunately. Once it was clear some would have to spent their night in Miami, we went to our hotel, we had a little dinner, not much because everyone was pretty tired of the entire day traveling.

Unfortunately it is common that people miss their flights like this. It was decided we would pick the other people up the next morning, they had seats on the first flight out of Miami to CancĂșn, so that was a little luck.
