Over the next two weeks, I will be in 6 countries, not counting the US. I plan on keeping up with a posting schedule, but things may have strange hours. For the first week, I’ll be working in Singapore and Malaysia, and transiting through Japan, Thailand (Bangkok), and Germany. This will be the first time I’ve been to either of those countries and Thailand – but really, an hour in the airport doesn’t really count as “visiting” a country. Even though the flight schedule is pretty grueling, I hope to get to see a few things while I’m there.
The following week, I’ll be in Canada on vacation with Dad. This will be our first vacation for more than a weekend without Daughter Person since she was born over 2.5 years ago. We’re going to Niagara Falls and Toronto, and it just happens to be during Niagara-on-the-Lake’s wine festival…. (Really, we didn’t plan it that way).
The fun part is that my flight from Asia returns to the states at about 12:30pm on Friday the 20th, and that night, we drive to Grammy’s to drop off Daughter Person – I’m going to have a messed up body clock for a while. On the plus side, I’m getting about 30k miles on Star Alliance towards my gold status for next year! And I’m pretty sure after this trip, I’m going to need to get more pages in my passport before I can go anywhere else.
