It’s almost 10:00pm and TG 657 to Bangkok has finally been cleared for take-off.

I am on my way back to Thailand again.

This journey back to Thailand started earlier in the day when I got on a limousine bus at Daejeon’s Dongbu (East) Terminal for the four hour ride to Incheon International Airport which ended up taking only three hours. So, I end up getting to the airport at 2:00 instead of 3:00 with seven hours instead of six hours on my hands now.

Sure, I could have waited and taken a later bus, but I was kind of worried about the weekend traffic gridlock back into Seoul.

No problem. I am flying business class so I will just hang out in the Singapore Airline’s Lounge drinking free coffee and cola for the next couple of hours.

I am excited to be headed back to Thailand for the next three weeks which will most likely be my last vacation for the year. I am excited for a variety of reasons not the least of which is to have some time to get inked by Jimmy again. Maybe this time he will be able to finish the chest piece he has been working on since last year.

And very, very excited that On and I will have the chance to spend the next 19 days together.

Who would have thought that when I met her in Bangkok last November we would be where we are at today?

Once again, a chance meeting has changed everything in my life.
