On Korean Air – KE 137
-Incheon to Nadi-
Mission to Fiji : Day 1.
Nadi, en route. Going to attend a workshop on tobacco control, Tuesday to Thursday. Flying back Friday.
My third visit to Fiji (see most recently 6.108 Kovu Ura).
On the road for two weeks, two missions, back to back, Switzerland (done), then Fiji (about to begin) — just beyond the halfway point. Both trips involve long haul flights, inherently difficult due to the travel time and the time difference, but the business class compensates somewhat. Arranged the itinerary — MNL > ICN > GVA > ICN > NAD > ICN > MNL — to allow for three consecutive weekends at home, though only for a day and a half per stop, the second one ending yesterday. I’ll take my blessings however they may come.
As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel internationally, whether for fun or for work, especially via business class (see BEST IN FLIGHT), including airport lounge access (see in BEST IN LOUNGE).
