International Flying 101

By | April 11, 2010

Ah the journey begins. It amuses me to report that I haven’t even left the airplane and I am writting my first little snippet for you all to read. As I write this, it is 735am (pst). While some of you may already be awake, I still haven’t gone to sleep. Now I’m sure some of you are thinking ‘sheesh, you party animal’, farthest thing from the truth.

I’ve never been on an international flight before, and I sure don’t plan to be on many after this one. Although the creature comforts Cathay Pacific has provided us can can only be described as… well, comforting, one of my fellow passengers is essentially throwing a stick into the spokes of my travel bicycle.

At not even one year of age, this little guy(or girl) is sure making one hell of a racket 2 rows up and across the isle. Dinner was served shortly after 4am, our stuff was cleaned up at around 445am. At 515am the band struck up. As if someone had stolen this childs bottle, he/she began to scream as though the world were coming to an end.

Now, me being the prepared guy (and light sleeper) that I am, I’ve obviously packed some ear plugs for my trip. Unfortunately, they are packed for my trip and not my plane ride. So for those of you that are reading this, be warned… Bring some ear plugs for the plane ride!!!
