Day 1 - Leaving on a jet plane

sunny 24 °C

"All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go"
"Leaving on a Jet Plane - John Denver"

Like heck I hate to go! The bags are packed and I am ready to go. All that awaits is the countdown to 21:00 when Emirates EK435 whisks us off to Dubai.

Another Turning Point,
A fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist,
Directs you where to go
So make the best of this test,
And don't ask why
It's not a question,
But a lesson learned in time

So take the photographs,
And still frames in your mind
Hang them on a shelf,
In good health and good time
Tattoos of memories,
And dead skin on trial
For what it's worth,
It was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you have the time of your life
