I have my ticket! 2006 June 23

Posted by @jennyjenjen in Pre-Departure, Travel.

I have my ticket!

Or rather, my tickets – I have a few stopovers before I get there!

This makes the wait to go to Sweden just more excruciating. The tickets have a special place on my wall, where I look at them every day. It’s going to be quite the exciting journey.

I can already see myself in the airport, with my bags packed and tickets in hand, ready to take off. O’Hare Airport in Chicago is my first destination, with a very short layover before I fly to Manchester, then I’ve got another short layover and finally I’ll be in at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm.

I’ve been to O’Hare before; I’ve flown in and out of there a few times, visiting family and heading to other destinations on the East Coast. It’s too bad that my layover is not longer so I could visit family, but it’s possible that I could have a late lunch with someone in the terminal. I usually fly into Midway, though, which sometimes feels like the Omaha of all airports. O’Hare is not that bad of an airport, but I like all airports, mostly just for the feeling I get when I know I’m travelling. To me, there are few things as exciting as travel.

The Omaha of all airports? Just wondering what that means :).

Thanks, Omahan

LOL I haven’t actually been to Omaha before, but I catch your analogy. As an airport, Midway feels more like it belongs in Omaha or maybe, say, Colorado Springs, than in the nation’s third-largest city.

I’m sorry the Swiss team lost, despite never allowing a goal (how do you manage that?) Who are you rooting for now?

Välkommen till Sverige! I hope you have a nice year here, Uppsala is basically a city of students, so you are sure to have a great time. You must visit Stockholm though, the most beautiful city in the world… (well, I guess I am allowed a little patriotism). Lycka till med dina studier också!
