    Could be Time . . . to Head Home

    April 12, 2020 in Bahrain ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    My visa extension runs out today. Unless a last minute miracle happens, I don't think a second extension will be approved. As it stands right now, I will be heading to the airport for the 32 hour trip back around the world to Honolulu. My flight departs at 1:30 am, that will take me from Bahrain to Paris on Gulf Air. Then over to Delta (Air France) from Paris to Los Angeles, and the final leg is Los Angeles to Honolulu, due to arrive at 7:39 PM, all on the same day (Monday, 13 April). There is simply no way to continue to travel until later this year when the COVID beast has been tamed. Frankly, who knows how all that will unfold. Although shorter than anticipated, this trip will in fact have taken me completely around the planet. It was great to have Jo along for the middle 4 months of this journey, glad she got to enjoy all the best parts. It was also excellent to meet and hang out with old friends, and so many new friends.Read more
