Day 1. A bit unsettling to know how long this day has been. It started Monday 6am with normal morning routine, finishing packing, getting to the airport and such. Here it is, a bit more than 24 hrs later and I've been to Chicago, Frankfurt, and finally Edinburgh. (Which was not the original plan--though it worked--and with very little sleep)
This sweetie kept me entertained on the hop from Frankfurt to Edinburgh. She speaks Chinese and English with a charming Scots accent.
I brought a complete change of clothing with me as well as all my general necessities, so I should be fine for a day or so.
