I am leaving in a little over 24 hours. I can't concentrate at work. I can't even concentrate enough to figure out what or how to pack. I'm indescribably excited.
This is my first entire-week-out-of-the-office vacation in over a year* and my first more-than-a-week vacation since I went to New Zealand over five years ago.
J and I are flying east. To many of you who live there, it won't seem as exciting as it does to me. But I've never seen real fall leaves. I've never taken a train trip. And I've never been to Boston.**
And there are so many other things I didn't get to see in my previous visits.***
We're stopping in DC, Philly, New York and Boston. A short visit to each, but friends to visit everywhere. And perhaps a few things to see and take pictures of along the way.
I'll be back, eventually. Until then, there's plenty to read linked below and to the left over there.
* I can't believe it's been a year since I went to Kauai (for those posts start here: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7) on the other hand it seems like forever since I took a real, leave work behind vacation.
** OK, so I've flown into and driven out of the Boston airport, but that doesn't really count.
*** Including my New York visit in April (see here: 1 2 3 4).
