...or "See What a Dork I Am."
I LOVE planning for trips, and our big vacation (starting Friday) is no exception! Here's my portfolio of Cali-Fun:
For weeks I've been scouring the internet, looking up destinations, comparing prices, searching for discounts, printing maps. Because I am such a geek, I enjoy all this prep work almost as much as the trip itself! When we get there, I like to have all this info on hand so we can pick and choose our activities without too much stress. And no, I don't for a second think we'll do all of the stuff in my folder. But it's nice to have options!
We'll be gone for nine days and will see L.A., Disneyland and San Diego. B will spend much of his SD time at the San Diego Comic-Con, the ultimate convention of its sort. We can't remember the last time we were away from home for so long, and it'll be the first flight for R&K.
I'm looking forward to seeing some friends in LA who will be our hosts. R, our future film director, is excited about seeing Hollywood, Universal Studios and the Warner Bros. lot. Both R&K are REALLY excited about going to Disneyland! Last night we watched an old Sing-Along Songs video of "Disneyland Fun," and even though it's a little outdated, just seeing a little of the place helped pump us up--as if we needed any help. And B is looking forward to hanging out in person with some of his fellow comics reviewers.
