Delta flight 27

The screen in front of me shows that we are currently somewhere over that little gap of ocean between Alaska and Russia.

Distance to destination: 3578 miles

Altitude: 38044 feet

Ground speed: 565 mph

I generally sleep very little when flying, and am currently admiring Evan next to me, who has managed to sleep through both dinner and breakfast. I don’t know how my parents did it: traveling such long distances with three young children. Alistair and I exchange stories of long and sometimes arduous journeys to and from New Guinea.

We have now passed a little over half of the almost fourteen-hour flight to Seoul, South Korea. Thank God for compression socks!
