We made it!  12 February 2019  Bangkok  Thailand 
 
 
 

If you're currently on Vancouver Island you'll be impressed that we made it off the island Sunday. It involved getting to the airport 6 hours early, watching all the flights gradually cancel as the sunny day turned snow white, a much-longer-than-expected ride from a senior Air Canada crew member (thanks Sue!) almost but not quite to the Swartz Bay ferry, the Pat Bay highway having become a parking lot, a one-km trudge down the highway in a blizzard carrying luggage and dressed for southeast Asia, walking past hundreds of newly arrived ferry passengers waiting for rides that couldn't get through the snow, a ferry ride, a bus ride through deserted snow-covered lower mainland streets to YVR, and then, finally, into the air and onto our journey. Whew.
