Twenty-seven hours of travel… all times Central Daylight Savings Time
Sunday 5:50 pm – arrive at Bangkok airport after having slept only 5 hours because of an evening arrival from Singapore. Almost miss my 6:45 flight and am the last to check in. Flight is smooth and comfortable.
Monday 12:20 am – arrive at Narita airport in Tokyo. Take shower at Red Carpet Club and make an easy connection to LAX.
Monday 12:50 pm – arrive at LAX and recheck my bags for remainder of trip. Sunny day and pleasant in LA.
Monday 5:00 pm – in San Francisco with a two-hour layover. Eat lunch, a roast beef sandwich on Boudin sourdough bread.
Monday 8:45 pm – arrive in Denver to discover that they have had snow and my flight to Kansas City is cancelled. I am booked on the 10:30 flight tomorrow morning, meaning I’ll miss my 8:30 am flight to Atlanta.
We’ll see what the adventure has in store for me. And who said that getting there is half the fun?
