I am not a big fan of Red Eyes, buses, trains or planes. For whatever reason, I cannot sleep on these red eye fares and it normally leads to a 2-3 day recovery period. Well this experience proved to be the RED EYE from hell. This was our 4th trip with Cruz Del Sur and I must say we have been pretty impressed. This trip was an exception. We have always booked the VIP Service which gives extras such as wide, comfy reclining leather chairs, in house movies, meal service and limited seats in a private coach. Fifteen minutes into the trip I new things were going wrong when I went to use the little boy's room and the toilet was overflowing with...you know what! This carried on the entire 18.5 hour trip, that's right 18.5 hours of hell. The seats we booked were supposed to recline 160 degrees but not so. They were in the back row and would only recline to about 140 degrees (no wonder they were the only 2 seats available in VIP). My stomach started giving me some issues a few days prior and that didn't help. The goofballs in front of us reclined their seats to the full 160 degrees about 5 minutes after boarding and that essentially locked us in our seats. NOT A GREAT START!! I used to be the only one on a red eye bright eyed and bushy tailed but this experience was definitely the worst. We arrived in Cusco at approximately 4 pm, 4 hours later than published arrival time. We cannot blame Cruz Del Sur entirely for the delay due to a car rally that was making its way through this small village and we had to wait (2 hours) for all the cars to pass.
I have always been a straight shooter and a go getter. Many have said Leslie must be a saint to have put up with me for over 40 years. We have been business partners since the day we got married and each played an intrigal roll in our business success. There is nothing more important to us than our Family & Friends. Our love of people and travel has allowed us to develop amazing friendships around the world.
