I am back on the mainland and blogging from Seattle with South Austin in the rearview mirror. Don't worry Virgin Island fans, I will most certainly be back in the Caribbean for visits if not full-time. And I'm sure St. Thomas will creep it's way into many future posts. For now, it's all about living in the Pacific Northwest!

The Question and The Answer

I have never been in danger of sleeping through an alarm and missing a flight. I know people that have done this. I have not. I seem to be incapable of it. So here I am, up before the sun this morning (up before my alarm thought about making a peep) and have already had coffee and a brisk walk with Izee in the cool of the pre-dawn. In a few hours, I will hit my internal snooze button and catch up on my missed sleep while cruising at a safe altitude towards JFK.  Once there, I will peruse the airport wares and perhaps by an I heart NY tee while waiting for my friend to catch up to me. Then together we will cross the big ocean and with any luck, land in the elusive Barcelona tomorrow morning. I have wanted to visit Spain for a very long time. Each time my wanderlust sister or anyone else would suggest a trip, this would be my answer... always Barcelona. Somehow, though it has always been my first answer, it has never been my destination. Don't get me wrong, I have loved every one of the others (Chile, Rome, Ireland, Scotland, England, Bermuda, Honduras, the list goes on) and have no regrets. But...today, Barcelona is the answer AND the destination!
