Waking before dawn is not my favorite way to start the day, but sometimes it is very worth it….
eg 4am check in
Living in the Pacific = flying over atols to get pretty much anywhere else!
One of the things that kept me sane during a very long day of travel (20+ hours, Auckland > Gold Coast > Tokyo > Osaka) was a fascinating audiobook which I am still enjoying and highly reccomend, Philip Glass autobiography – Words without Music
I’m sure the book is also great but when you are stuck in that twilight zone of long distance air travel the audiobook is an ideal solution – here is the iTunes link – can’t say I am much of a fan of audible.com requirement to use their app (or categorising me as Australian) but I do highly reccomend the audio book, beautifully voiced and a welcome reminder that people really are the sum of their experiences. Glass early life & subsequent travels & study is deeply inspiring…
