This is the first installment of my “thankful” journal from our trip to India. I tried to write down all the things I was thankful for each day. These are the pics of our first leg of almost 25 hours and 11,053 miles of flying and 14 hours of layovers!
I was thankful for…
*It all fit in only 3 suitcases and a carry-on!
*A ride with the Imholtes to the airport.
*Lunch with my parents before getting on the plane in Portland…
* Bonine works!!! (this is the first plane ride I wasn’t sick in the first 15 minutes and the entire trip following)
* Free wi-fi at airports.
*Singapore Airlines. Voted the best airline in the world!
* Our own personal entertainment systems with TONS of first-run movies, music, audio books, games…
*Sleep on the plane. We needed it! Getting a pillow, blanket, sleeping socks, a hot moist towel, and a toothbrush really helped!
*Lots of good food on the airplane! It was so good we didn’t even mind that they served it at such funky hours… :o)
*Clear skies flying into Hong Kong.
*Gorgeous airports! Singapore’s Changi airport has been voted the world’s best airport for YEARS! It’s no wonder. They have a hotel, shopping, restaurants, free city tours, movie theaters, spas, napping lounges, gorgeous displays, gardens… It was a destination all by itself!
