Thoughts from 35,000 ft

We are currently about 3 hours away from our layover in Seoul, above the Sea of Okhotsk according to the little TV screen on the back of the seat in front of me. Kenny is asleep (of course), but I’m not so good at sleeping on planes. So instead, some random observations from me:

  • Asiana is definitely a no-frills airline, but the flight has been fine so far, and the staff are friendly.
  • The guy next to me sounds like he is going to hack up a lung. I am terrified that I’m going to catch whatever he has and then get quarantined for suspected swine flu when we arrive in Shanghai.
  • Our new laptop rocks. I’ve been using it for about 3 hours so far on this flight, and the battery still has over 6 hours remaining.
  • For some reason I get super impatient on short flights (e.g. SEA->LAX) but can mentally prepare myself to sit still for longer hauls, even if I don’t sleep at all. Ten hours from Seattle to Seoul? No problem.

  1. Hi Lauren and Kenny – Just looked at your blog. It’s very thoughtful and thorough. Will spend more time with it later. :) Let us know how the rest of the flight was; what you are doing now; and how everything is there in Shanghai. Hope you’re getting some rest, enjoying and getting ready for a nice vacation. Love, love, love, Mom
