(Title catchphrase from the original television show & film series “Star Trek”)

What’s worse than having a hangover but isn’t an hangover ? A 27 hour travel to Vancouver and then add 4 hours for the return journey. I wish it had been a hangover instead!
We traveled from Karachi to Doha- so that’s 3 hours; with a 3 hour wait in Doha. We then had a 15½ hour journey to Los Angeles. That was followed by a 3 hour wait. Finally, another 3 hour journey to Vancouver… 27 HOURS!
Returning was exactly the same- except we had to add 2 more hours for the wait in Los Angeles; and 2 more hours for the wait in Doha… 31 HOURS!
Being in Economy didn’t really help either!
I just read an article that the Spaceship X type of programs will eventually result in an half hour journey between Dubai & London – can’t wait for that to happen!
Till then, I wish star Trek’s transporter was actually there- we could simply be across the world with a simple “beam me up… Scotty”!
