As I indicated here, I was out of a town in June for about four days. I had to go to St. Louis for training for work. Normally, I would have welcomed a trip like that but I think overall what got me was that I wasn’t actually in St. Louis proper (as I’ve come to discover, most company training like this is never in the actual city you’re traveling to but rather a suburb far enough out that requires a vehicle) and I didn’t have a vehicle. So basically, all I saw of St. Louis was the airport, the highway that took me to the hotel, the hotel, the road that took me to the company and back to the airport.
The hotel wasn’t bad, as I indicated. Nothing about the experience itself was bad up until the last day when my flight got delayed numerous times due to mechanical issues and rather than actually cancel the flight and be forced to comp people, US Airways just decided to tell us to wait around the terminal for five hours so they could find another plane. Which, I guess worked because I got home that night but, well, I got home that night instead of that afternoon and had basically spent twelve hours in airports.
Was not a happy camper.
Regardless, to busy myself while in St. Louis, I took pictures of things. Not too exciting but the grounds of the hotel were beautiful. So I figured I’d post those up here. Because I visited a hotel in St. Louis (or rather, Maryland Heights).
At least I got home safe, albeit a bit late.
