In just a span of half a day, Raft3r has been to 7 international airports.
Yes, you read it right – 7 terminals in 12 hours. That must be a record of some sort. Would the Guinness people be interested?
From Manila, I headed to Guam where I had a 4 hour stopover. They have a pretty cool airport with free WiFi and an endless row of duty free stores. After Guam, came 4 other stops. Airports in Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae, and Kwajalein were all part of the long journey to Majuro.
To make things even more interesting, US security regulations require a 30 minute cabin search be conducted for every stop we made. That meant all passengers had to deplane and head to the airport waiting area.
Due to the damn searches, Raft3r had no decent sleep for the duration of the flight. Just when I was about to get some shut eye, it’s time to get off the plane again. It’s insane.
I finally landed in Majuro late Friday evening. My check in luggage wasn’t lost in transit and my driver arrived early to pick me up. He speaks perfect English.
Based on first impression, Majuro might just be a fun place to live in for the next 21 days.
As the locals say, “Iokwe!”
