Well, on July 22nd, we sealed our fate for the next year and bought our tickets overseas. The flight will be 22 hours in coach unless we decide to switch to business class at the airport. This was a wonderful suggestion made by Jessica, my roommate who traveled to Southeast Asia a few years ago, but without a job, we may have to remain seated in the back, sans leg room. I am already gearing up for the long plane ride and have travel scrabble set aside for the many luls between the inflight movies and the copious meals served. We are flying EVA Airways which seems to have good ratings from past travelers, so keep your fingers crossed.
