December 2nd is the first of two full travel days for me as I fly back home from Paris. Today was only the first leg, and I’ve already decided I’m never doing this again! I love my friend Darlene and I’ve had a blast travelling with her, but having just spent a full day flying from Paris to Seattle to Portland, and knowing I have another full day flying from Portland to San Francisco to SLO tomorrow is making me tired and grumpy. And also I’m sure it was more expensive than just flying from SLO to San Francisco (or LA) to Paris. But, live and learn! Next time we can each make our own way to our exciting vacation destination, and just meet up once we all arrive!
