Tickets To Fly

Is it just me, or are others somewhat disconcerted about airline e-tickets? The photo shows the tickets that will take the husband and me to Hue, Vietnam, via Seattle, and then on to Perth and Melbourne, Australia before we arrive back home to Virginia. Granted, paper tickets could get lost, damaged, or stolen, but at least there was something to look at in anticipation, while visualizing yourself handing it over to an agent, tangible evidence that you were about to travel. It seems so much more, well, ordinary this way, as if we do it regularly. I don't ever want travel to seem ordinary or regular; I want it always to be an adventure.

  1. I just keep hauling out the itinerary and confirmation from the airline or travel agent - and the corrected versions as time goes by! It is definitely a concrete reminder until 24 hours before departure! Only problem is when you return from an out of the way place (Venezuela for example), that you cannot even get your bags checked in and a boarding pass to return home or travel forward on line. Life is a challenge and no one said travel was easy! It all just gives you more travel stories to tell!
