Leaving on a Jetplane.

I'm so fortunate I get to travel on a fairly frequent basis.  Whether it's for work, or to visit friends, or just to get out of Atlanta for a little while [and on occasion off to anther country!], I'll use any excuse to go on a trip. 

Today, as you read this, I'm either on my way to Aruba [yes, the tropical, Caribbean island!] or I've just arrived there.  I'm off on a girls trip for a few days, where all I plan to do is lay on this very beach [yes, our hotel has its own private island that supposedly has pink flamingos wandering around on it- this BETTER be true, or else I want my money back!]. 

Hopefully I'll get to write some posts from Aruba, though I'm not sure what the wifi situation is like there. It's certainly not free in the hotel room [why is it that only Howard Johnsons and Holiday Inns give out free wifi these days? Seriously, if I'm paying for a higher end hotel- at least give me this ONE amenity! Rant done].

So just in case you don't hear from me for a few days, check out this mix I made.  Yes, it's entirely flight-related.  Some songs are great and I actually like listening to when flying, others not so much, but it's a decent mix.  I'm also working on my beach mix [which involves a lot of Friendly Fires and Bob Marley].

Very shortly after returning from Aruba, I actually make my way to the opposite side of the world [and more importantly, to a drastically different climate] to Alaska.  There will be lots of hiking, white water rafting, [summer] dog sledding, salmon fishing [no, not in the Yemen], bear hunting [not to kill, just to see in the wild!], and so forth.  I need to rest up on the beach, since I'll be very busy in Alaska.  The sun will actually never set when I'm up there, so I'll get to cram lots of nature in one trip.  Can't wait!

Safe travels this summer!
