Stranger on a Plane

One day back in May while on a flight from Utah to New York I meet a women and her husband. The three of us were seated next to each other for a 4 hour flight. At first I thought the women was just chatty but then we began talking. Turned out she was on the way back from seeing her grandchildren, which I saw pictures of them all. They were taking a flight to JFK (in NY) and then connecting on a flight to Africa. Her and her husband, sleeping at this time, were going for a month’s safari in Africa. Turned out this was not their first time… it was something they did often. She told me how since they were retired now, they were going to do all the things they wanted to and see the world in the process. I think that’s a great way to spend a retirement!
