Europe 2005: The flight over

April 05, 2005
"The flight over"

I went to Europe in 2005, probably for my last time. It was a lot of fun, although traveling by yourself is a little strange - there are none of the normal little social pressures that occur when you are with someone else, no natural limits to your lingering. In the normal pulse and rhythm of living, I think people rely on the tether of others actions to move through the day. Untethered, it feels a lot like floating.

This was taken on the flight from Seattle to Rome. The flight was not too full, so I had nobody sitting next to me. Luxury, on a transatlantic flight; it meant I could spread out and not have to engage in "armrest war 2005" with some fat asshole.
