Att Resa (Traveling)

I've been trying to write a post for a week but it's too difficult! The impressions come in such rapid succession that there is no time for processing and writing, which for me takes time and a certain relaxed state. Every time I sit down at the computer to write, something interesting happens or someone interesting comes over to talk to me.

I flew to Sweden Monday after spending two days in the Bay Area with my old friend, Kelly.
I love this girl...
The trip was long and various and required a lot of patience, for me, because I was so very anxious to arrive at my destination.
Just another passenger...
One flight lasted 5 hours and took me from San Francisco to Newark, New Jersey, where I waited 2 hours in the airport.
Newark from the air
The next trip lasted 8 hours and took me to Copenhagen, Denmark. I cat-napped as best I could through that flight.
There was a little monitor to show the progress of the flight. Here I was just beginning, 4,000 miles and 8 hours from Copenhagen, 36,000 feet in the air and traveling at 514 miles per hour.


Up until that point, everything was smooth, pleasant and totally manageable. It didn't become challenging until I arrived at Kastrup, the Copenhagen airport. But that is a story for another post because now, if I don't stop writing I will miss the chance to go to the flower shop to buy flowers for Anders' mother.

To be continued...
