I turned to check the display screen for my next flight. Delayed.
This was becoming a familiar sight on my return trip to Australia. I’d been in Canada visiting family for three months, and was now making my way through California to visit a friend, then onward to the Land Down Under.
At each step along the way I faced delays. A few different factors aligned to create this interruption prone journey: an impending snow storm in eastern Canada, Christmas and New Year travellers heading home throughout the US, plus the busy Australian summer holiday season winding down.
It’s about the journey, not the destination
I don’t think many people would sympathize with the notion that it’s about the journey, not the destination when they fly. The whole point of this form of transportation is to get somewhere far, relatively quickly. Yet during this trip my destination felt further away by the hour.
Check. First revelation: I needed a lesson in patience.
