Well, finally a reason to like my MacBook Air…it fits on the tray of an airplane seat – even when the seat in front of me is reclining as far back as it can go.
I am about a third of the way to St. John’s. The man beside me is sleeping, the man across the aisle from me has a terrible cough (great, eh?); Les Miserables is getting tedious because Victor Hugo is describing the Battle of Waterloo in great detail. But at least I got an aisle seat so I can move around if I have to.
Apparently one of the requirements to work at Toronto International Airport is being a jerk (I would use a stronger word but it’s a family blog) and I wouldn’t want the Swear Police (Jaden) to put me in jail.
But at least Toronto International has joined the 21st century and the wifi is free. It wasn’t all that many years ago when travelling back and forth between St. John’s and Toronto when the wifi in St. John’s was free and in Toronto it was $9.95 plus tax. So, just before boarding I was able to check my email and send updates to a couple of clients before shutting down. When I arrive in Newfoundland, before getting my rental car, I will get back on the internet to check for updates – I’m expecting at least one important update from a client and will have to book an appointment for her at 11 a.m. EST.
That’s the beauty of being a Virtual Assistant. I can be anywhere as long as I have an internet connection. And these days they are everywhere (even Toronto International Airport). So, I will take 10 minutes at the airport to get on line, bring myself and my clients up to date, get my car and be off to Spaniard’s Bay. Maybe even upload this post.
