At home packing
Ella helping us pack!
We have made it as far as the Vancouver airport! We are relaxing in the Premium Lounge, having a beer, before our 2 am flight to Hong Kong. Susan got a deal on the lounge passes on Groupon and I'm glad she did. It's a nice way to start our trip. It's quiet here, there is lots of comfortable seating and food and drink.
Our cats are in good hands with our catsitter Ni. We're so glad she's staying in our place taking care of the cats while we're away. Ella knew something was up because of the suitcases. She always hides when visitors come but she came out when before we left so we know she'll be ok with Ni while we're away. Our friend and neighbour Myron drove us to the airport - thanks Myron! And it is his birthday today too. His wife and our friend Tula will pick us up. What great neighbours!
I will write again, probably from the plane. Now I'll enjoy the lounge for awhile.
Ok, here we are at the Hong Kong airport waiting for our flight to Bangkok. It was a 13 hour flight and wow, that was a

long flight. Cathay Pacific was good, blankets and pillows and headsets even for economy class. They gave us dinner and breakfast (I skipped the dinner but Susan said it was quite good). We get second breakfast on our flight to Bangkok, which is just under 3 hours. I dozed for a few hours, and watched 3 movies on the flight, Susan slept a bit and watched her share of movies too. We both wore our Dr. Segal compression socks on the flight and highly recommend them (Susan got the argyle and I got leopard print. Dr. Segal has lots of colours and prints).
Onward to Bangkok!
