Racking Up The Air Miles – Off To Germany Then Las Vegas

It seem like only yesterday that I was at the airport flying to Miami. Actually that was only two weeks ago. Here I am again at the Vancouver International Airport waiting for a flight that will take me half way around to world to Dresden, Germany. This is the start of a ten day trip that will end in Las Vegas. After this trip, I think I’m going to take a vacation.

I generally have no problems flying overseas. I don’t seem to have any problems adjusting to the time zone difference. It’s coming home that present the problems. The last time I came back from Shanghai I had a case of jet lag.

I’m going to Germany to give a keynote for the annual Society of American Travel Writers convention. In addition to the keynote, I’ll be doing a workshop on how to make money online. Then I plan on taking a bunch of tours that Tourism Germany had arranged for SATW members. Expect to see lots of fun pictures and videos.

I’ll be flying from Leipzig to Las Vegas for Blog World Expo on Oct. 13. The flight will take three connections (Leipzig to Munich, Munich to Chicago, Chicago to Las Vegas) and nearly 19 hours to complete. If you see me fall asleep during my Blog World Expo panel, you’ll know why.

    So you’re coming to Europe, John. Unfortunately I won’t go to that convention, so can’t meet you. But I’m sure I’ll still have the occasion other time 🙂

    1. d3so says:

      The top internet marketers should do a world tour. Wouldn’t that be awesome lol.

      1. Yeah. I wish John could come to Malaysia.

        1. Hey John,

          I think that after this set of trips you’ll be exhausted.

          I’m interested in seeing your pics and videos from Germany.

  2. I’ll see you art Blog World Expo.I’ll be paying the $1200 so I’ll be there when it starts and ends.

    1. d3so says:

      Dang, you’re actually going there. Hope you have a good time!

      1. Hey Bradley,

        Blog about the event, what you’ll have seen and whom you’ll have met and post a lot of pictures too.

        Good for you to take the opportunity to be there.

        1. Dan Lew says:

          Hey Bradley, good for you for getting your dad to pay, will he be going as well?

      Please share your experience with us.

    Going West timezones are no problem. Going East timezones kill you with jetlag. Flying from Vancouver to Europe always messes me and usually takes about a week to adjust. Good luck!

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      That’s what I thought. It’s not a matter of leaving home or coming home; it’s the direction of travel. When I fly to Taiwan or Hong Kong (from Vancouver), I can usually adjust within the day. Coming back, it can take a couple days, if not a week. So, I’d imagine the reverse would be true when traveling to Europe.

      1. Well, for me I have virtually no jet lag flying to Europe but after I come back it hits me pretty badly.

        Each person is different. Some people get more affected flying West and some East. Some people get affected about evenly in each direction.

        Then there are those who say that they don’t seem to get affected that much at all but I have hard time believing that.

        1. Dan Lew says:

          Yeah it depends on time zones too, like if you end up arriving to the other country during the day and its been a 12 hour + flight then you will feel it!

  4. Mike says:

    John you are a RockStar man! See you in Vegas where we can party like Rockstars!

  5. Sounds busy, but also sounds like it could be a lot of fun! But yes, try not to fall asleep during your panel

  6. Lakhyajyoti says:

    Nice thinking.After the tour go for a vacation with your family.Please don’t forget to make a post about the Las vegas tour.

    1. d3so says:

      I hope he posts videos of his tour in both Europe and Germany.

      1. Lakhyajyoti says:

        Hope he will do that.

  7. Lori says:

    I’ll be seeing you there man!!! I had fun visiting last time with you at Vegas so I’m sure this time will be just as fun.

  8. d3so says:

    I consider taking trips as vacation, but it certainly does take a lot out of you especially if you travel overseas.

    1. Lakhyajyoti says:

      Cent percent agree with you.

      1. Dan Lew says:

        A few hours flight is ok though!

  9. Essays says:

    Best wished for the trip.
