All seems in order for our departure to San Francisco tomorrow. As I pottered around making the final touches to packing, check-in, visas and so on, my mind wandered to the reason I first started blogging five years ago. It was to record our trip to Europe, and the blog was originally called 55 Days With Gwen.
Being as how I was in the head-space for writing then, when we arrived at the departure airport I was in full observation mode. Turning those observations into my blog-post Random Thoughts While Locked in a Tin Can filled many an hour on-board.
I doubt I will be quite so inspired this time around. Unlike the Boeing 737 of our previous trip, this time our aircraft will have four engines instead of two (that’s a teaser to make you read the previous post 🙂 )
Due to the quirk of travelling west-east and crossing the dateline, we will arrive in San Francisco three hours earlier than when we took off even though we will have flown for around 14 hours. Talk about meeting myself coming back!
