The journey begins but it starts off awash with luxury as I fly Ethiad Airlines, truly the greatest airline on the planet. Wood floors, leather, great food, all on new planes that are beautiful. So don’t feel sorry for me yet! Now when I get to basecamp, then feel free to feel sorry for me as I live on rocks and ice at 17,000 ft. But til then , I’m living the life. Cheers. See you on the other side.
