Travelog (Day 20) – Going Home

OK, that’s it. My travelog is coming to an end. Tonight I start my long journey back to India. Long because I have back to back flights that are 5, 5.5 and 15 hours respectively with about 3 hours waiting time at each intermediate airport.

Actually I am flying more than halfway around the world. From Hawaii I first fly to San Francisco, then to Newark and finally to Mumbai. Common sense dictates that it would have made more sense to fly back to India the other way around, cutting across the International Date Line via New Zealand, possibly. But somehow these crazy airlines do not consider that as a round trip, when actually I going as “round” as I can possibly can. For them “round” means that you fly back the same way you flew in.

This has been a long and fruitful trip. I have a question for those of you who kept track of this travelog. Seriously, didn’t you guys have anything else better to do? 😉

  • We sure did Deelip, and just wait and see what awaits you in the office and home (the good part), but heh what a day without lok at what you were doing with some envy 😉

    Safe trip.

  • lok? – looking

  • rakeshrao

    Good CAD reporting and travelogging again , Deelip!! Keep it up.

    We surely have other things to do but my morning always begins with my cup of tea and a look at your blog.

    Have a safe trip back to Goa.

  • Ah! How I long for my cup of tea. These Americans haven’t the faintest idea of what tea actually is. However, I must admit that their coffee is amazing. And expensive.

  • Sure it's a nice travelog. True “chai” is much better that tea bags.
    I like it with cardamon. To cross the pacific you need to have a stop over in Japan or Korea. It's quite long actually specially if you fly to mumbai.

    I imagine you must always be home.

  • Yeah, I guessed as much. Maybe, the stopover at Hawaii does not allow the big airlines to get the right partner airline connection to make this a “round” trip.
