Mature Friends' Cruise in Asia

As the snow tumbled down all day and all night, our resourceful, determined group of ten made our own unique ways to SeaTac Airport to catch an EVA Air 747 to Hong Kong. After boarding the plane, we sat and waited 45 minutes for the plane to be de-iced. Then we were ready to fly, right? Wrong! Next, the taxiway had to be plowed before our plane could go anywhere, let along take off. Finally, 90 minutes late, we took off. My watched showed 2:30 AM, Thursday morning, January 19. We found out later that Sea-Tac had closed the next day.

Once in the air, we settled in for a very long flight to Taipei, where we were scheduled to connect with another flight to Hong Kong. Luckily, the connecting flight was also on EVA Air, and they held the plane for us.

After a race from one end of the Taipei airport to the other end, we caught our connecting flight to Hong Kong, our first stop in Asia. Some of us worried about our luggage making the connection, but no need to have worried. Everything arrived at the same time — luggage, steamer trunks, and us!

But let's get started with our first stop — Hong Kong! Just click the arrow to the right, or click the link of the stop you want in the list under our group picture.
