Ok–so how much did this research trip cost me? With absolutely everything–room, flight, food, alcohol (including two meals for two and two of us drinking around the world the other night)…$1,329.71.
I’m not sure if that is good or bad. It is $329.71 more than I’d hoped, but oh well. I also wasn’t very thrifty or thoughtful about my spending.
I’ll do a more detailed cost breakdown as a thread on the passporter forums later this week.
Aaack! What a way to start a vacation!
Fortunately I signed up for express check out, so all I needed to do was have the concierge print me out a bill after she printed out my boarding pass. It took a while for me to determine that I actually didn’t need to stand in the airline check in line (because I have no checked luggage) or in the check out line (because I already provided payment info online before I left) but given the craziness of the lobby right now, I’m eternally grateful that I figured it out!
