Somewhere over the pacific, we’re sitting in row 32 on a Boeing 777on our way to Sydney. It’s around 1:30 am Sydney time, which I think means we’ve been up and running for about 26 hours at this point. The screen in the setback claims that there another 4 and a half hours left in this leg, then we have a couple more after that on the leg to Townsville.
But this is how adventures start! Kim and Travis off on out great tour of Down Under, 2011.
We finally got Kim’s Mongolia pictures uploaded to the Gallery.
For probably one of the first times in business travel, I actually had some time to play Tourist this trip. I didn’t exactly get up Saturday and hit the town. Sleep hasn’t been great this week, so I took some time to catch up and slept in a bit.
Woke up to rain today — guess I can’t really complain about that though given how much rain there’s been at home while I’ve been gone!
Busy day in London today – several meetings at work, getting ready for $Boss to head off to Bangkok and work with the team there while I’m in the London office for another 3.5 days. Grabbed a quick lunch again at Pret (nothing special), spent some time printing out maps and ideas for what to do this weekend, and then dinner tonite was Shish. Shish was pretty good – music was a little obnonious, but I guess that’s a “friday night in London” thing. Food was really nice, filling, and tasty!
Tomorrow, off to play Tourist finally. Definites are the Science Museum and the Natural History museum. We’ll see what kind of time I have then for other things. Gotta pick up a subway pass…
Made it to London without too much drama. Departing flight from BWI was about 20 minutes late, but we made up time enroute… then burned it being stacked up a little bit at Heathrow due to an earlier evacuation of the ATC tower — not a real fire, just a false alarm thankfully.
