Boardimg pass in hand, I sit at the window with a Starbucks latte watching the final preparations to my Lufthansa Boeing 737. The last few days have seen me finish my tenure as a manager at the Import Auto Group and say farewell to my family and dog. The weekend saw a last minute shopping spree and Saturday night drinks at a pub in Calgary's kensington district. I felt an odd nervous disbelief that this trip was technically underway. The feeling of anxious under preparation lingers all around me as I glance occasionally at my Ukrainian language translator. Across from me sits a short blond hair girl, "Bet she's going to Kiev" I think to myself.
"Attention please, travelers of Lufthansa flight 495 to Frankfurt. We shall now begin the boarding process for economy rows 20-30"
And I'm off...but not too quickly, after all i am trying to convey a nonchalant attitude about boarding a plane to Germany.
