Cannes/London 2013: Saturday, May 11th

Now, I am at the airport, waiting for the first leg of my journey — San Francisco to Frankfurt.

The flight should take about 11 hours. I have a half an hour until boarding and hope I’ll be able to sleep on the plane (as I hear a baby screaming).

It’s a strange feeling to think this will be my first time abroad since Japan about three years ago. Japan seems simultaneously like a distant memory and something that happened just yesterday.

I have no idea at this point what my actual schedule will be like in Cannes, so I just have to take everything a step at a time.

I know it’s silly, but I brought a good luck charm of sorts with me: a bottle cap with a William Blake quote inside…

“The busy bee has no time for sorrow.”

My adventure is just beginning! 🙂
