Turbulence and Spicy Clamato

A s with any trip there comes a moment before packing when I get a moment of cloud nine and worry. They hit about the same time. What to pack, why I’m I going, oh it is 32c there, repack, tell the story of the Samurai before he left to war, complain about clothing, and then eat lots to avoid the $20 burger at the airport.

Of course I love the travel, the excitement to see new places, hang with friends and see what sort of trip this ends up being. So… will I learn something new or can I be a positive influence in someone’s life?

From somewhere near a landing strip sipping on Spicy Clamato and feeling the turbulence. That must be Toronto below me.

    The burgers weren’t quite $20. In Costa Rica airport a whopper went for $7.
