It seems romantic to travel overseas. And I’m not saying that I don’t like it. But when you read this, I’ll be in the middle of this:
3 hour flight
7 hour layover
14.5 hour flight
2.5 hour layover
4.5 hour flight
It’s a brutal schedule — hard on the body and the soul (of course, I mean “soul” metaphorically).
Few things are worse that listening to someone who gets to travel complain about traveling. I’m thrilled that I get to visit a new country this week and meet new friends. But it’s not without a cost.
I’ll be posting about what I learn on this trip, and I’ll do my best to make the posts applicable to the 90% of you who are American readers. I hope that you’ll find the posts interesting.
And on that 14.5-hour flight from LAX to Taipei, I’ll take a crack at last week’s Question That Haunts.
