MVW Travels: Day 02, Toronto and Istanbul

Dateline: Istanbul, Turkey—01 Mar. 2017 If yesterday was about trains, today is all about the planes. Specifically the Turkish Airlines 777-300 that flew me into Istanbul. Boeing 777-300ER safety card. It's the biggest plane I've ever been on. The inflight entertainment system had screens in the back of every seat. I wasn't sleepy at the beginning of the flight, so I watched two movies I had been putting off seeing, Jack Reacher Never Go Back and The Accountant.

MVW Travels: Day 01, Phoenix and Toronto

Dateline: Toronto, Canada—28 Feb. 2017 One of our great philosophers once said, “A journey of a thousand miles starts will a single body scan.”1 Today was an air-travel day. I started out on a train and will end it during my second flight of the day. I’m also playing fast-and-loose with a definition of what “today” is. Since I’ll do most of the “night’s” sleeping on the long-haul flight to Istanbul, that will end my “day.

MVW Travels: Day 00, Phoenix

Dateline: Phoenix, AZ USA—27 Feb. 2017 I’ve decided to cash in my chips and hit the road for a while. This trip is one of those where I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but only bought the tickets a few weeks ago. It will also give me a chance to test out some of my MVW strategies, as I’ll be traveling light. I’ll be leaving tomorrow (28 Feb.) and my trip begins with a 28 hour flight.
