For the first time in twenty-five months, Tawn and I are taking an international trip together – and this is only my second international trip since February 2020.
Our routing is rife with opportunities for the advancing Onicron variant of COVID to throw a spanner in the works: it is three separate tickets covering three countries on two continents in three weeks.
The main trip is a round trip from Bangkok to Paris on Austrian airlines, connecting through a country currently under lockdown. Nested within that trip are a round trip from Paris to Kansas City and, after that, from Paris to Lisbon.
I anticipate at least seven more COVID tests along the way. Stay tuned!
