Well I was a couple of days ago anyway.
Lovelies, please do me a favour: if you ever travel from the States to Asia, make sure you grab yourself a window seat on the midday Delta Atlanta/Tokyo flight. It will BLOW YOUR MIND! We’d never seen Alaska, Siberia or the Bering Straits before (and yeh I still haven’t managed to get my head around why we flew up to practically the North Pole just to get to Japan – could have stopped by Santa’s place), and essentially chased the sunset for about 9 hours over the mountains, ravines, snow fields, frozen rivers and bloody icebergs! Insane! Excuse my french please.
These are the best pics I can find online but they actually don’t even begin to do it justice – I literally had my snoz pressed up against the window for hours and hours:
All the snow and forests made me start frigging finally to feel a smidge festive. Hong Kong and Cayman aren’t the easiest places to channel a little Santa (one place doesn’t celebrate Christmas, the other is plastered in palm, not pine, trees…), but gazing out at these bonkers sights made me want to start bellowing out a rendition of Jingle Bells at the top of my lungs and brought to mind little wistful ideas of creating something like the following:
Tra la laaaaaaaaa!
Anyhoo, so all festive spirit immediately evaporated into a pouf of hot air when we stepped out of the plane into 80 degree heat here in Singas, but you know what, it was pretty awesome while it lasted.
How are you guys getting on with your Crimbo deco…?
