imagine making the crossing on horseback
Many would argue that air travel has become more complicated, less glamorous and infinitely more tiresome than in the past. The glory days of getting dressed up in Sunday best to take a plane trip are gone let alone full service, real cutlery with a decent in-flight meal and unlimited baggage allowances. Now we have to weigh our luggage even before we leave home, check ourselves in electronically and bring our own provisions. Nevertheless, there is something magical in being able to wake up in one time zone and go to sleep in another.
This fortnight’s Two Cents Tuesday Challenge has literally flown across the continent today and in doing so have simultaneously gained and lost three hours. No matter how many times we do it, the transition from one state of being to another, no matter how familiar, is always – Curious.
Last week we asked “How does curious look to you?” – A silly hat or wiffle bat, Granny on her roller skates, things in bottles, painted plates, one weird shoe without a mate, urchins in the ocean deep, twisted kitties fast asleep…
We would love to see your vision.
For all those who are new readers to Across the Bored, some great entries and the guidelines for this fortnight’s challenge can be found here. Need more info – Have a look at HOW DOES THIS WORK.

Thank you for making your links, HERE and HOW DOES THIS WORK etc., standout in bold, and a different colour to normal text. It certainly helps when ones eyes are a colour deficient.
You’re welcome – depending on which device I’m working on I either have to take my regular glasses off or put my reading glasses on! Seems as though blogging is one more good way to ruin your eyesight…
I am always curious, doesn’t matter about what – my son has a post-it on his computer that says “Retain the wonder”: we need to look at the world through the eyes of a child every once in a while to take the edge off…
Thanks for the video clip!
I have zero desire to go to the airport–all the fun of flying has been robbed.
Only those in first class seem to be really enjoying themselves, the faces in steerage are not quite as happy!
