The 6:30am alarm didn’t stand a chance in being helpful this morning . . . we were up already and eager to go. Though our flight wasn’t to leave until after 11am, we were already making coffee, shuffling around the house, and making last minute adjustments to our bags and electronics inventory. Bag . . . check, passports . . . check, music/movies on the tablet . . . check, local currencies and flight info . . . you bet!
The bus arrived at the stop right as we did, which was good because we’d have to wait 35 minutes for the next one, and our transfer to the Light Rail was met with an equally efficient flow – although eight minutes to the next train would’ve been quite easy to accept. We’re not in a hurry anyways . . .
Coming out of the transit tunnel we were met with the bright sun and a great view of Mt Rainier to the south, which was great because in true Seattle “if-you-don’t-like-the-weather-wait-fifteen-minutes” fashion, the sky had begun to cloud over by the time we’d reached the airport.
We’re off together, but will have two different adventures. We’re heading down to a luxurious stay @ the Beverly Hilton – a hotel credit we won on the Ellen Degeneres Show. Lounging by the pool is in order, as well as taking the subway to Long Beach for a day, then back for more poolside relaxation. Our adventures will fork when Bertie takes off to Cambodia/Vietnam/Malaysia for nine weeks and I’ll go to Eastern Canada for one, then back to work after only two weeks away. Though I’ll have a great time I can’t help but think Christine got the better deal!
