First time on Korean airlines. Really impressed with the leg room and the cleanliness and the overall experience. We did 10 hours and a stop-over in Korea to change planes and then 10 hours to Vancouver. Both flights were about half full so everyone had more than enough to room to stretch out or even lay down. I said it was like having a sleepover with a bunch of friends or family after a great party and everyone fell asleep on the couch in their clothes. Except, these people were much more friendly than our friends or family – in that they none of them were asking us for money, running from the law, or trying to pinch my cheeks.
I was not thrilled with the food. It all tasted the same. A salad with something weird and unidentifiable in it that was half from mars and half from the annual church picnic (i.e. potato salad with some kind of slimy something in it). The desert was the same one for all meals. It was a thin cake base with a gelatine, milky some kind of layer and then a thin layer of fruit jello of some kind. They changed with each meal to colour co-ordinate, only they weren’t trying to match it to the bowls or a flower arrangement – it was to the colour of the meat. One of the jellos was orange. You get my drift.
There wasn’t any salt, pepper or sugar with the meal but they did give us a toothpick and real metal utensils which greatly surprised me being as they could all be used as weapons.

Nail clippers … can anyone actually cut a toe nail with one of those things? I mean without bleeding out? Continue reading “An Epic Trip Back To Canada.”
Character Building days should come with a warning. Like no-one should ever have to wake up all alone and abandoned to one of those days … completely oblivious that you are about to hit the Serengeti Trail playing the role of the weakest gazelle in the herd while the lions circle. Compassion does not have to be a big production, but the coffee fairy should at least leave you a great cup by your bedside. Maybe someone could brush your teeth for you or something. And of course the entire team from Emergency Relief should be there offering words of encouragement and handing you a teddy bear and a cookie.
A mommy should be on stand by. Continue reading “Life With Warning Labels”
