I left San Francisco lunchtime Monday, and arrived home Tuesday afternoon.
But the journey was not without incident, from a touch of turbulence (which concluded with me pouring apple juice all over myself), to another dodgy personal entertainment system - I managed to watch the first ten minutes of a dozen movies, but every time things started getting interesting the little box of tricks switched off and reset itself. Brilliant.
From the plane, to the train then - which was predictably delayed (aren't they all?!) and then finally home, and to some surprisingly good weather.
But the return journey is not what this final entry should be all about. At least, I don't want it to be, because that means I have to admit this trip is over. Done. Complete. And I'm not ready for that quite yet.
As I sit here now, having travelled thousands of miles over the last two weeks I can't help thinking about all that I've seen and done. The amazing experiences, the unbelievable views, the sheer fun of it all. I know holidays are only supposed to be temporary, but the memories stick around forever.
I'm pleased that I wrote this travel blog, it's been great. But it would've been only half as good without you folks reading it and commenting, and letting me know that it wasn't a total waste of anyone's time.
So, this then is goodbye. The Great American Adventure of 2012 is over, but I'll leave you all with one question: Where Next?
