Just prior to boarding on my trip to Shanghai in Spring 2012. I would be on that airplane for nearly 17 hours direct JFK-PVG. What an amazing feat of engineering.
It’s actually a complicated trip to think about. Soon after I returned, a long-term relationship ended. Soon after that, I started flight training. Now a year later, there is still some sadness, way deep down.
But life goes on.
A year later, I’m a licensed pilot, and it’s one of my happiest accomplishments.
And I just booked a trip to France with my new girlfriend. We’re flying on a 777.
