We spent Thursday night in Saskatoon at Gary’s Mom’s place so we could have a taxi at 4:45am to get us to the airport by 5am. We just beat the big crowd at Air Canada’s check-in but there was a long line at the security screening where we waited a whopping 15 minutes or so. The YXE airport expansion is much better at handling the security lines. Our first flight of the day to Calgary was slightly delayed due to de-icing. We had over an hour to kill in Calgary.
If all goes well we should be on our way to Hong Kong at 12:10 pm Vancouver time (2:10 pm at home) The flight is around 13 hours and will land in Hong Kong at 5:40 pm which is 3:40 am Saskatoon time. That’s just slightly after the 3:30 am wake-up time we had today Friday Jan 15, 2016.
We will overnight at the Hong Kong Regal Airport Hotel and depart for the 1.5 hour flight to Siem Reap, Cambodia at 7:45 am Sunday January 17 Hong Kong time. FYI that’s about 5:45 pm Saturday back home. If you see the pattern with time difference? We will be 14 hours ahead of our home time zone. That is one of the biggest drawbacks to time travel!
We posted this as we sat in Vancouver killing 2 hours waiting for AC007, our flight to Hong Kong.
This picture below speaks for its self.
Once we get to Siem Reap we should have More interesting photos to share!
