Journal entry (10/1/13):
Happy October 1st! I’m so stoked–I’m going to the village of Wales today!
Before the flight, I ran a few errands around Nome before my flight, picked up my special order of fresh-made rolls of sushi and donuts for the health aids. 🙂 Then I finished packing it all in and drove off to the airport. I arrived at a little hangar/terminal for Bering Air—it looks like the hangars in PNG for AirLink or Tel Air.
Ahhhh I love flying so much! Can’t wait to get my pilot’s license! 🙂
The flight was beautiful, we soared over snow-capped hill-mountains and the tundra. The rivers that flow the tundra reflected the deep blue sky. I felt so lucky to have such an amazingly clear day to fly on!
We also flew over King Island—where the writer Paul Tiulana was from.
We got to see Little Diomede, Big Diomede and the snow-capped mountains— of Siberia, Russia from the plane!
The whole flight and layover in Tin City took about 1.5 hours.
