I’m all packed and ready to go. My flight leaves Atlanta at 0944 tomorrow morning. I should be landing in St. Thomas USVI at 1335 or there about. I’ve decided to take a regular sized suitcase in addition to my carryon this time since I’m going for such a long time and I get one free checked bag with Delta. Hopefully I’ve taken everything I need. If I’m missing something I’ll just try to do without it or if it is absolutely necessary I can always purchase it.
I’m excited about this journey. This is the first time since I was fifteen years old that I’m going on an extended trip (more than 30 days) which isn’t work related. Now that I have the opportunity I’m taking it. I’m taking Mark Twain’s quote to heart. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
