I probably should have made an effort to write this days ago, I am sorry. I am slack and I admit it, not sure that I really care to much it just "IS" That is an attitude "YOU" may look at adopting for yourself.
After being quite apprehensive about my trip it os course went off without any disasters. One of the reasons that preplanning is always a huge must. Vancouver airport is very nice and Canadians are very polite and helpful people. Would be nice if the rest of the world was like that, it might be a nicer place, but of course that is just my opinion. I think I have said before, religion is often the root of our problems, not so much the solution.
The aeroplane was great, the Boeing 787 was all that I expected. Perhaps it will be my aircraft of choice in future, cosier than Boein747-400s or Airbus A380's, besides I have ridden on them enough. My Mother is good, nice to live in the country and wake up to birds, I do miss that.
All in all it was a good trip, not sure why I was apprehensive, I am sure that it was just ms being its wicked self. Anyway thanks for everyone good wishes, I will be home in a few months, in time to start planning the next trip.
some thoughtful planning and care, the world is our oyster
