Got a call last night from the wife, her and the kid have arrived safely in the Philippines after a 14 hour flight. Fortunately the flight had a layover in Dubai right around halfway so it was broken up into a 6 and 8 hour journey instead of 14 hours straight. They flew on Emirates Airline which she said she was impressed by.
Anyway, they'll be gone until early June so I have a lot of time to bond with...myself. I don't have any concrete plans as far as traveling and whatnot but if anything comes up rest assured there will be blog updates.
