It is time. I am checked in, passport verified, last iced latte in hand waiting to board a plane to Amsterdam service to New Delhi.
My bag is heavier than I would like and my 3 oz of Aveda rosemary mint soap urped a little bit all over my other liquids. But the unknown awaits after 21 hours of flying.
The lead flight attendant said to me "You have a long flight- you ready?"
I am as ready as I can be.
