I’m finally home! The flight on Air New Zealand this time was much better. I think the plane was a 757. First class had these great seats that were situated diagonally so each person could convert the seat into a full bed. Greg had told me about this plane, but the one on the way over was different. This was a much better way of spending a 12-hour flight.
I ended up watching about three or four movies, ate two meals and fell asleep somewhere in between. It was actually a great way to spend time. I only wish I was fortunate enough to travel like that all of the time. It made travelling much less stressful and I only thought of complications once or twice. I did get a little scared at one point on the plane ride on the way home. I felt like halfway in that I was having a difficult time breathing. I slowly would inhale and exhale, taking my time to get as much oxygen as possible with each breath. Sometimes if I wasn’t concentrating I would suck in too much and it would make my chest skip a beat and was a little painful. At one point I was even thinking that I was going to ask the flight attendant to see if they had any extra oxygen, just in case.
I was up all hours of the night last night organizing and catching up on various chores around the house. Now of course I have been sleeping pretty much the entire day. Hopefully by tomorrow I will be back on somewhat of a normal schedule and not feeling the jet lag. It’s always funny how it hits harder on the way home versus on the way to your vacation spot.
