View from my plane

Flying from Seattle to New York.

1. I am kind of screwed up on time. It is currently 12:15 in New York, 11:15 in Chicago, and 9:15 in Seattle. I need to wake up early but am nowhere near tired yet.

2. I hate when I see cute boys with hot cameras and all I have on me is a point and shoot.

3. Having to pay $15 a day if I want internet in my room sucks. Free WiFi in the lobby is decent enough though. (p.s. I was totally going crazy because it didn’t work in the lobby…until I figured out that I had my wireless card turned off…)

4. I used an airplane bathroom for the second time ever today.


I spent my day traveling. Two busses to the Seattle/Tacoma airport. A shuttle to my gate. A delayed flight from Seattle to New York. And finally a cab from JFK to Manhattan.

I’m a bit screwed up on time zones but the fact that my hotel is pretty posh (thank YOU Priceline name your own price) and a giant brisket sandwich is now in my belly make everything A-Okay. I honestly don’t think I have ever stayed at a hotel this nice before and, come to think of it, don’t think I have ever stayed in a hotel all by myself before.

It is an experience in itself!

I didn’t bust out my good camera today…but here are a few pics I took from my point and shoot.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
