...and all is right with the world again
I love to travel, but there's nothing better in the world than coming home and I'm happy to be here. That said, the trip was fun (even though it was work).
The flight home was uneventful. I took an obligatory "sunset" picture from the plane.
After that it was just knitting.
I did manage to get a couple of souvenirs. Just before the Virginia trip last year, I was talking to my boss about souvenirs. She's a well-versed traveler and shared some knowledge with me. She never buy the common little souvenirs - key chains, magnets etc with the town you visited. It just becomes vacation clutter... so she saves her money to buy something to buy one really nice thing that she will enjoy for a long time - in her case, it's usually jewellry and shoes.
I loved it. When we went to Virginia, I bought both. I didn't have as much money this time, but I did find a very lovely Serpentine Jade bracelet to mark the trip
And the airport really knows how to sucker people... on the way to the terminal, there was a large display of good old Hello Kitty...
And now, if you'll excuse me - I have some cats to snuggle with.
