Asia, Destinations

And I am off…

My bags are packed and I’m at O’Hare hoping for an on time departure and if you know me well you probably realize the odds are against me.  I didn’t sleep last night mostly due to nerves for my big trip but I was alone at my parents home – the home I lived in for nearly 16 years as a child and teen.  There were all sorts of crazy noises and my imagination got the best of me as I envisioned a home invasion amongst other very unfortunate happenings.  Let me note there is an alarm system on the house and it was set.

After a curious noise startled me at about 2:00 am, I decided to go to the window and see if I was indeed done for this very night.  To my surprise, I did see something moving in the yard and as I watched its shadow move in the snow dusted yard and my eyes came into focus in the night sky, I realized this very vicious person coming to get me was indeed BAMBI.  The deer were searching for food and nuzzled up against the bushes along our front windows to make just enough noise to cause me concern.  I went back to bed and thought further about my trip and then realized I never bought razors.  It’s a darn good thing I only shave my legs once a month (note: great benefit to being single).  Who needs razors?

I’m off for a two part flight departing ORD – SFO – SHANGHAI – This means I’ve been gifted 18 hours of time to plan my trip, catch up on my reading and ponder if Hawaii might have been a more relaxing destination.

Please join me along the way for my Asian Adventure.  I am blessed to have this opportunity and time to see another part of the world. I am traveling solo as my travel bud and friend Jill is sitting this one out but will be joining me in spirit.

Lots of love,
