The journey from our home in Airdrie, Alberta to the Hilton Mumbai International Airport hotel took a total of 25 hours.
And an amazing 25 hours it was.
I have to admit that there quite a bit of crying at the airport as I hugged and kissed Kevin about a billion times before I forced myself to walk through the security line to begin my journey. And, even more crying as the plane lifted off Canadian soil and I faced the fact that I would be away from home, on my own for a pretty long time.
