Flight 3: Chicago to Anchorage

Length: Five and a half hours.

Movies watched: None! No movies! What are we, animals? (Rhetorical question).

Mouse almost fucked up by: Collecting only one of the two boarding passes needed.

Fun fact: I am now nine goddamn hours out of sync with time and I think I cam phase through walls.

This was my favourite flight so far, we were so high you could see the curvature of the earth and I couldn’t even tell if the surface below was land sea or cloud. Then we came down low enough to see the mountains.

This is going to be a good trip.


  1. Eeee, your excitement is contagious! I love flying over mountains.

    Have THE BEST time.

  2. Just remember to chew only the very best local mushrooms and it certainly WILL be a Good Trip! (please also remember not to give the local moose ideas – they’re a bit more than you could handle AND you’re a married mouse after all!).

  3. By the way, if you’re looking for a local cinema to ease your indignation at being denied an in-flight movie, then having just seen JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM I can happily recommend it; good entertainment, though not a Great Movie, and with moments of purest visual poetry to spice the popcorn.

    1. There’s also at least one moment which will likely delight your DINOSAUR-loathing heart, so there’s that to recommend it too!

  4. “…so high you could see the curvature of the earth…” < Thank you for implanting this in my thoughts today – lovely to imagine.
