I’ve made my list (three versions)) and I have been checking it (more than) twice. In a few short hours (okay about 36 hours from now) I will be landing in Boston for the first time in three years. There I will see my family and friends I have not seen in three years.
Before that, I will fly from Dubai to Boston, (13 hour and 55 minute flight. My mom will pick me up, but it is always a challenge to find her at the airport…),
Before that, I will fly from Bangkok to Dubai, ( a 6 hour 10 minute flight with 3 hours and 35 minutes layover there),
Before that, I will fly from Phnom Penh to Bangkok, (a 1 hour 15 minute flight, with 4 hours and 55 minutes layover in Bangkok…),
29 hours and 50 minutes from the moment I get on the first flight to when I land in Boston, but of course, before that, I have to go through all the rigamarole of checking in, etc.
Before that, I will jump in my tuk tuk (thanks, Mr. Bo) and head to the airport,
Before that, I will feel all ready to go and have to fill lots of time.
My first flight since BC. I am not usually an anxious traveler, but this time, yikes! I will be the one double-masked carrying my wipes and alcohol spray… I keep telling myself that it will all be worth it once I see those faces! A whole lot of new memories are waiting to be made.
