Where I stayed
I woke up today around 9:30 a.m. Dad had already worked out so when I got up I called him he was hanging out reading the paper in the lobby by the lemonade stand (he has been frequenting the free lemonade stand). We headed down for breakfast and had a wonderful breakfast - fresh fruit, egg white omelets, etc. It was very nice.
Afterwards, we went to the hotel, got dressed and went to an afternoon movie. We saw Silver Linings Playbook. It was very good - I was pleasantly surprised. I heard good reviews about the movie, but usually I don't go to movies because they don't entertain me long enough to sit through them. But this one did and it was enjoyable.
After the movie we headed back to the hotel to work out and get ready for dinner. It was the first dinner with our fellow Around The World Travelers. It was SO much fun! I am definitely the youngest on our jet, but it definitely didn't matter. I enjoyed talking with everyone that I will be spending the next three weeks with. We had hors d'oeuvres and drinks during the start of the Super Bowl, followed by a three course dinner and more super bowl watching and drinks afterwards. During dinner our trip leader spoke about the journey ahead and it was all very exciting.
Tomorrow we go to Peru. We only take our carryon suitcase for this first leg of the journey. She told us to make sure that our bags were packed by 9 p.m. this evening so they could pack what we weren't taking to Peru on the jet. As soon as she said this, Dad promptly looked at his watch (8:30pm) and fled the room to pack. We all had a laugh about it and continued to drink and enjoy hanging out and watching the game.
I am all packed and ready to get on this plane for tomorrow... I know it will be amazing, but Im just excited to get it started. Here goes nothing!!! :)
