I wrote this Saturday when we left Aitutaki…little did I know what was about to happen!
It’s that time!!
We’ve been on vacation for 17 days. It’s time to go home.
We still have a couple of LONG flights in front of us, but every second is worth it…especially now that Dennis connected us to some seriously awesome music. Starting with Lady Gaga, he then decided to to torment me with BeeGees, but now Lordes makes everything better!
They’re having some sort of engine trouble so our plane that was supposed to leave an hour ago is boarded…and we wait. Not even on the Tarmac. We’re still sitting at the gate, but if the extra hour makes us arrive safely (and on time) in LA, then they can take all the time they want.
I’m looking from the plane to the inside of the airport…and there isn’t a soul in there! Rarotanga is the capital of the Cook Islands…I don’t remember much about the airport from our last trip here, a lot of monotonous things like airports tend to blend together when you have a memory like mine, but I really thought it would be more bustling than this.
I remember getting into the Cook Islands and it was something ridiculous like 5am…and no one was around….and suddenly it’s the same thing. The only difference is that it’s dark because it’s night, not bright-eyed, bushy-tailed morning sunrise.
I’m far from bright-eyes and bushy-tailed at this point!
Thankfully I have Dennis to make me laugh and wonderful in-flight music to make me want to dance!
All that blogging won’t be posted until tomorrow. So keep up. There’s some good ones with awesome Vegas adventures!
