Another day, another flight

Flew home on a Delta flight – it feels weird flying Delta after being with Alaska for so long. But in the final analysis Alaska simply doesn’t have enough international partners and it looks like I’ll need that for the next few years.

Interesting the difference between ~Oregon on the flight vs. Seattle.

For several years Scandinavian Airlines had this awesome nativity calendar. Each day in December you’d jump online, open the little door, and out would pop some ridiculous flight deal to somewhere in Europe. At the time SAS flew from Seattle so these deals could be amazing.

I miss that calendar. I watched it daily and bought several flights.

The funniest part about this post is noting a possible trip to Paris but that it might be rough on the kids. We moved to Paris two years later!

Kebab

I love kebabs. There, I said it. And not US kebabs which are never the right thing. European ones. I first had a kebab back in ’88 in Bremen. Had never heard of such a thing but as drunk food goes it might be the best. When we lived in Europe the kebab was my guilty pleasure. This is a fine example of a kebab in Graz. Not as good as the Parisian version, better than Zürich’s though.

Coming in over England

Waking up this morning over England. It’s hard to see but there is another jet trailing a contrail below and right of us.
