The woman who truly takes delight in the finer things in life, and does it with a humble and appreciative attitude, is a beautiful woman indeed! On my last trip to South Africa, that woman was me!  I recently took a trip to see my family in South Africa. Because of all the travelling I do, I was able to upgrade my ticket to business class. Now I don’t know about many of you, but this was a first for me. Growing up, I’d always sit in the economy seats at the back of the plane and wonder what the life of the upper class flyer must be like. Well let me tell you....its pretty much phenomenal!  

If getting upgraded to Business Class wasn’t cool enough, on the first leg of my trip, they UPGRADED ME AGAIN to FIRST CLASS because as it turns out, they had oversold Business Class! Oh my GOODNESS-it was SO fancy. First, did you know that in first class, you basically have your very own attendant? Nancy, my airline attendant, offered me a newspaper of my choice and then after giving me a glass of champagne, asked me what I’d like to drink after we take off! I was trying to act like I fly first class all the time-but inside I was giggling with glee, like a little girl in a candy store!!! After Nancy brought me my drink (in a real glass instead of plastic, by the way!), then she brought me a bowl of warm mixed nuts and a menu for the 4-course dinner that would be served. The seats literally turn into flatbeds and there is a privac screen and duvet blankets! Of course, you get your own personal entertainment system with Bose headphones and dozens of movies and TV shows! Talk about heavenly! The food was served on real plates as opposed to the foil TV trays you get in economy and it was delicious! What a trip!  

If you ever get the chance to upgrade, take it....its such a treat! xo
