We set off West as the sun played it’s final tune for the day and stunned us once again with it’s beauty.
All I got was a blurry picture of the welcome to Pennsylvania sign, so this bridge in phillipstown near the border of NJ an PA will have to do.
Had a blast signing along to Billy Joel’s Allentown as we passed by it.
After struggling through New York traffic and crazy aggressive drivers that need a mute button we made it to New Jersey. Not so sure about garden state though, looks like a scene from Fallout 3.
To get here we passed over the George Washington bridge. Which I guess which be more impressive viewed from another angle.
Yea, I totally missed pictures of the Rhode Island and Connecticut state lines. But New York had two signs so I caught the second one.
With John Mayer singing ‘Stop this Train’ we head out of Boston on the first 9 hours of our journey. We are going along the coast for a while then cutting across Pennsylvania on our way to DC to stay a few nights with Linc’s cousin.
I woke up yesterday morning at 4:30am in anticipation of my flight out to Boston at 10pm, and the start of an epic road trip with my fiancé from Boston to Seattle via Florida.
And I almost had a heart attack! I went to check in for my flight and I didn’t have a seat assignment. I was quite concerned. I could not miss this flight. We had been planning this for 6 months. Which was about as long as I had a ticket for – one with an exit row seat.
In a bit of a panic I called up Alaska Airlines only to discover to my delight that I had been upgraded to first class and my seat would be assigned when I got to the airport.
My entire travel experience to Boston was phenomenal. I breezed through security without even a second look at my rig. I found the perfect card for my sweetie and had a tasty cookie with some wine in the boardroom while I poured my heart out to him.
Boarding was magical as I slipped into my comfy seat in 4A turned on my music and left the world behind me. After a movie and a Bailey’s on the rocks I slept for two hours. I was woken by the descent of the plane into Boston 30 mins early.
When I arrived Linc was already waiting and my bag was circling looking for me on the carousel.
After a bit more sleep in his hotel room and a hot shower we were off to start our lives together.
As one of my friends said, “A good omen” 🙂
