On FlyAway – Officially on Vacation

I am on the Flyaway bus to LAX. There’s something about getting on the Flyaway, headed toward the airport, that makes me feel like the true start of my travels – not the half-dazed subway ride with the equally half-dazed people headed to work at 6:30am (did you know there were that many people on the Red Line before 7?).

In any case, here I go on my first extended vacation in awhile. Previous long trips were conference/visitation trips with my Sister Cities familia, so without all those formalities (and all that fun and warm/fuzzy stuff), I guess you might say this is my first real vacation.

Destinations: Washington DC then New York!
