Regaining my lost day

Hong Kong to Toronto via Vancouver on Air Canada


View Train from Paris to Hong Kong on GregW's travel map.

I lost a day. It happened so slowly that I was barely even aware of it. Half of it disappeared during the flight from Toronto to Paris while I was asleep. The other half disappeared slowly, an hour here, an hour there as I made my way across Europe and Asia.

It's alright though, because I get the day back today. In flying from Hong Kong to Vancouver (on my way to Toronto), I cross the international date line, and all those lost hours due to crossing time zones come flooding back in one fell swoop. And I will end up landing in Vancouver 4 hours ahead of when I left Hong Kong.

I have stuffed my pockets with winning sports scores, horse races and lottery numbers. When I get to the past, I am going to be RICH!
