One of the things I enjoy about traveling is...the waiting. Now, don't get me wrong -- I don't like unexpected waiting, as in the plane is delayed. Been there, done that, spent 24 hours in an airport because of a blizzard once and got sent to Botany Bay (yes, really!) by a ten hour delay on the return from Australia. Those experiences weren't wonderful.
But I don't mind having to get to the airport early to allow time for security and customs because I get to read. Indeed, I have little choice but to read. There's not a lot I can do otherwise if I'm traveling by myself. Ditto when I'm on the plane. I can just sit and read and not have to worry that I should be doing something else, like, oh, say...writing.
On my trip this week, I'm taking WANTED IN ALASKA by Kate Bridges. I can hardly wait!
