The “noughties” will end as the clock strikes 00:00 on 1st January 2010. But for expats living away from home, when exactly is this? GMT? EST? NZST? Or do you have a thought for when it’s New Year back in your home country? We would imagine most to stick to the time zone they are in but it’s always nice to have an extra excuse to break out the champagne and have a sing song. There are undoubtedly some expats and travellers out there who take advantage and celebrate twice (or more…).
Apparently roughly 450 planes were in the sky for the millennium celebrations 10 years ago. Does anybody know of anyone, expat or otherwise, welcoming 2010 in in-flight?
As always we’d love to hear your stories. It’s been a very interesting year for most and one that has set us up for another interesting year in 2010. We wish everyone the very best and here’s to a prosperous New Year!
