Yeah yeah, I know, cheap title. But it's been a long haul of trip planning (yes, pun very much intended), and I'm thrilled to be nearing the start of my next epic trip around the world. It seems like just yesterday I was blogging about the last one, but that's because real life slows my posting, and so it very nearly was.
In actuality, it's been quite awhile since I did my first and only real 'round the world' itinerary. It was amazing, exhausting, and all things in between. In any event, when Qatar Airways put on an even better sale this year, I couldn't say no. I mean it, I tried, but it didn't work and now in about a week I'm off to Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Doha again.
The flights are similar, but different. I've traded in some of the positioning for award tickets, and am connecting to Philly, not Boston, this time around. Sorry Beantown, I'll miss you.
For the details and such, check out the preview post over on Altitude Consulting - Westward Bound.
Even better, I'm ending this week with a good old fashioned family Thanksgiving trip to Seattle. However, there will be no 'day before the holiday' panic travel for us. We're waiting a day to celebrate so we can fly in the Thanksgiving day lull. It's paid off too- all three of us have already cleared our upgrades for the outbound flight with seats to spare!
I'm ever thankful for family and friends.... and a little extra legroom.
