Hello from MCO (aka Orlando International Airport)!
I am enroute to Norfolk, VA. Well, I will be if my flight doesn’t get delayed again. The delays here are insane. I’m not even sure what’s going on because the weather isn’t THAT bad (and there are flights taking off and landing).
I wish I could say I was headed there for a nice Virginia Beach vacation — but a girl can dream!
I did spend some time at the beach this weekend. My dad lives in Indian Harbour Beach and he had a random Sunday off (he usually works weekends) — so we made the 45 minute ride over on Saturday afternoon.
It wasn’t beautiful beach weather and the waves were ROUGH (thank you Tropical Storm Issac) – so we decided to skip the swimming and sun bathing — and just go for a walk.
We had a fun night that involved music, dancing, and pizza — and then after the kids were in bed I enjoyed a little Prosecco while we watched The Hunger Games (<–still enjoyed it).
This morning was equally crappy (weather wise) — but we managed to hit the pool for a little swim (truthfully, I accidentally left my swim suit at home – so I just took pictures) and took in some of that wild ocean air. The wind was nuts.
On the way home we stop for some really great Thai food — that happened to be directly across the street. Umm, why haven’t we eaten there before?
It’s a good thing I’m not a food blogger, I never remember to take pictures until AFTER we have already started eating.
After a short drive home and throwing way too much stuff into a suitcase (I need to join overpackers anonymous) I am now spending HOURS at the airport chatting it up with random strangers. This is a talent I got from my mom, who is capable of talking to anyone, anywhere. So yeah, I might need to pace myself on this wine…
This leads me to ask — what’s the WEIRDEST conversation you’ve had with a stranger on a plane/train/while traveling?
