Well, losers, the correct answer was Marrakech. There was even a huge clue in the pic  :Yuck:. Amaze airport, btw.
I legit googled connecting airports to Marrakech and Marrakech airport but it didn't look right. Whoops!

The derp traffic on SW to HI should make normal human being flights so much more enjoyable

I got to ICT way early Sunday so I could settle in somewhere to watch the 'hawks.  I saw the desk w/outlet setup right after security and set up shop there, and quickly found out I was right next to the SW gate and would get interrupted nonstop by the gate agent getting on the mic to tell everyone how to board.

At half, I found another good setup way down by the alaska gate.

OTOH, featured restaurant chick-fil-a was closed, because Sunday. They should’ve partnered with my chick-fil-gay concept.

I pretty much assume all flights to Hawaii are basically SW flights already. :dunno:

I never had much of a desire to go to Hawaii but now that the entire Caribbean is mumped for the foreseeable future I guess I will go.

Any pro tips on Euro trips? I've always wanted to do Ireland, but I heard it's not worth it. We were going to do Ireland for a few days and then hop over to Italy or something like that. We're just now trying to plan this. I've never been. Trying to do this over Christmas-New Years. Baby pressure from our fams continue to grow because everyone is doing it now and I said I wouldn't do it until I had one last big trip overseas. Pro tips would be great. TIA.

I’ve been to Spain and Italy and they were both awesome.  Don’t ever give money to people begging, like ever.  The second you do like 100 more beggars will appear out of nowhere and they might even kick your ass and take your money.

Get a train pass and travel between the countries like that.  I’ve never done it but I have heard it’s fun.  Leave lots of room in your luggage for souvenirs and Cuban rum and cigars.  I want to go back to Europe sometime.

 :thumbs: I hear flights are also cheap over there to jump from one spot to the next, but a train sounds way more fun.

Wacky do you and the Mrs have your passports already?  I had let mine expire and put off renewing it and this past trip I had to pay $60 extra to expedite it.  It takes like 6-8 weeks normally to get it and it’s already $110 to get one.  So make sure you plan accordingly.

Same trip but did it in reverse order. Added in Western Ireland...Dublin won't take you much time.

What are your desires and constraints? Do you ski? Will be some great skiing in the Alps then. Italy, Switzerland, Austria, (france). Take your pick. Depending how much hopping you're doing, rail might be cheaper, but it really depends. If you'll be moving around a lot, look at a Euro pass. Ryan Air is good for cheap flights, but you're hamstrung by their airport locations and luggage restrictions. If you're in Spain, I recommend a brief trip across the strait to Morocco (beware limited alcohol availability, my man). Go party at Ibiza.

As my last name is Scottish, I'm most interested in Scotland. The rest of the trip will just be icing on the cake. Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and enjoy as much I can in between.

Ireland has always been a desire of mine, because of my heritage, but i'm not sure how green it would be by going in December. Italy and Spain and Switzerland all sound super awesome. I've never ski'd before, but Mrs Wacky loves it and I've always wanted to try it. Not sure if that's the best place to start out at, since it's like, real legit.
