Leaving home was an experience but that is normal. Could have used one more day. Last minute packing and play time with the kids. Of course some tears (well actually a lot by some). We went out to eat and then I was dropped off at the bus. Then there was several hours on the bus and then at the airport.
I am now fully commited to my trip. It is about lunch time where I am and half way through my trip to Pakistan. Nothing to exciting happened yet but I think that the seats are shrinking in the aeroplanes. Every year cool, neat features are added but few help in the area of sleeping.
My first fight was not quite full so I had an empty seat next to me. While every one else was sleeping, I tried, too, but to no avail. This next flight (after a 5 hour layover) is another overnight flight, however, it is totally full. Have to be creative with the sleeping.
Interestingly, the flights are about the same times and have the same flight numbers that we had last year on our trip to Pakistan. That was a family trip so was quite interesting with kids. This time it is just me and it is quite a different experience.
I am going to find some good ol’ “fish n’ chips” for lunch. I’ll write more soon.
Here is a picture of a plane very similar to the ones that I am traveling on.
