Up and Over
27 January 2018
One minute you're there. Next you're somewhere else.
Before I left Australia I thought I'd follow my cousin Graham's advice for long haul flights and get some sleeping pills. So, off to the chemist, a wee white lie and bingo, a packet of prescription only whack pills.
Back at the boat I bumped in Plastik Plankton and Kathi, a GP was horror struck when I told her of my cunning travel plan. "Ever heard of thrombosis? Sleep for 6 hours without moving on a plane and you'll wake up in theatre with just the one leg."
Grand plan consigned to the bin.......until we joined the screaming weans and their mums on the midnight, fifteen hour drag to China.
Two of the magic pills each, ear plugs in, eye mask on and......hello China.
What a great way to fly. Comatose.
And I've still got two legs.
