welllll… that depends. 🙂 It’s an 8 hour train ride (or 2 hour flight) to Beijing + 12 hour flight from BJ to New York, then another hour and a half flight from New York to DC – plus layovers. My flights this winter have short layovers, so from BJ to DC will ‘only’ take me 18 hours, plus the 8 hour train ride and a few hours in BJ before my flight.

So… I leave my house at 6:30am, gain 13 hours in transit, and am hopefully out of the DC airport by 9:30pm the same day. Yay!

We live 3002 miles apart exactly. It’s a 5 and a half hour flight and 3 and a half hour drive.

I wonder when they’ll start bottling Flew Powder for us (a la Harry Potter) so we dont have to deal with the silliness of airplanes…hmmmm. Well, maybe not. I might be out a job if we stop making airplanes, lol

4 hr drive, depending on traffic. I spent 7 hrs on a bus once trying to get to NYC.

@fifty – I hear you – I always feel like such a “sissy” when I complain and someone says “well I have to get on a plane to see my SO” LOL whoops! I’ll take the 4 hr drive!

3.5 hours driving, which is the closest in terms of miles that we’ve done since he was in the Navy.  I think the longest distance we were at was 20,000 leagues under the sea for deployments 🙂 

I didn’t realize you weren’t both in NYC Mr. Bee! Do you travel most weekends?

How about the rest of you?  How often do you make the trip to see your SO?  Lambster and I travel about every other weekend.

it’s about 4.5 hours if i get a nonstop flight but usually closer to 5-7 hours with connections. if you add in the time i have to get up to catch my flights [especially since i’m gaining hours, i usually take the first flight out of cali in the morning], i’m already awake for 12 straight hours before i even land! and we hit the ground running so i’m usually not that fun the first day of our visits. lol.

@lamb, that was before mrs. bee moved to nyc! as for me and the boy, we try to get in a visit every 3-4 months or so but it’s been tough as of late. it’s just been expensive to travel!

We are a 2.5-3hr plane ride from each other:  NYC to STL.  Not too bad considering.  Definitely not the ideal way to spend our first married years together, but we try to see eachother 3 weekends a month or the equivalent.  We have made it work so far.

We are exactly a 3 hour flight from each other (Denver & Atlanta). We see each other every other weekend. I can’t wait to live together. I am so sick of traveling!

For me it takes, 4 hours to get from Calgary to Toronto. A 2 hour stopover and then an hour flight from Toronto to Boston.  So that’s about 7 hours of travelling. Of course that’s not including check in, picking up baggage and going through customs!

Takes me about 3 hours to fly to California, and from there it’s about a 12 to 13 hour flight. And I lose a whole day (where does it go?) But I get to time travel into the future, so it’s not that bad.

14 hour drive… but only a 2.5 hour flight.
So, I suppose we’re pretty lucky – I don’t have to cross an ocean or anything.
But.  We do only see each other about 5 or 6 times a year.
Which was fine before we got married but SUCKS right now!
