Well, for me, this fall welcomes the journey of a lifetime for me. I will be heading to India at the end of this month. I will visit places that my father had been before me. Even though he is not here, or there, I feel that he will be with me as I make this trip around the globe. I invite you to come, too. Just as I blogged while in Thailand, I will be blogging my way around the World. Come along, it is sure to be a trip that I’ll never forget!
As I type this, I can view the flight map on the tv screen on the back of the seat in front of me. We have flown up the coast of California, the Western edge of Canada and Alaska. It shows us that we are actually going to be crossing the Bearing Sea and the International Date Line shortly. So…I left LAX on Friday, June 8 at 1:14pm, 4:14pm in SC and 7:14pm in Thailand…I just haven’t figured out if it was 7:14pm yesterday or tomorrow? I think “tomorrow” because when I get there, it will be 11:00pm on Saturday, June 9. When we make our connection in Tokyo, it will be 5pm, there. So, I’m trying to decide whether I should try to stay awake so that I can get some rest when we land in Bangkok at 11pm~ since our flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, Thailand doesn’t leave until 7am on Sunday, June 10.
Today’s the day! I’ve been in California for the last 2 days hanging out in Ojai with my dear friend, Leeann Carey, hanging out at an adorable, quaint, little Inn called the Blue Iguana. We’ve had a wonderful time catching up, eating yummy food, drinking wine, doing some last minute work before I head to the other side of the World and just having some plain old girl time. It’s been lovely! So, today, I wake up at 4:45am (7:45am Eastern) because I’m not acclimated to the time change yet.
