We've started our trip on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. and arrived at our San Francsco hostel on Thursday at 12:00 a.m., but we changed a few time zones so we'd been traveling for over 30 hours and during that time were in a car, 3 different trains, 3 different planes, at 5 different airports and 4 four major cities - Venice, London, New York and finally San Francisco. Talk about jet set, right? No, talk about jet lag.
There's no rest for the weary and there certainly wasn't plenty of rest for us, so we have already something to show for all the hubub. Besides, who needs rest when you fly accros the Atlantic ocean with Virgin Atlantic - you get you own sleeping mask, blanket, slippers and ear plugs, they serve fruit cocktails with vodka, a hot meal with salad, dessert and another drink, a snack (sandwich and a muffin) and coffee, you have 49 movies to watch for free to choose from and all of the flight attendants are at least cute if not hot. I drank my cocktail, ate my stake with potatoes, carrots and pees, chocolate mousse and banana muffin, watched Hitchcock, Lincoln and Skyfall and now I'm about to go do some San Fran site seeing for the second day - I really can't complain, can I?
P.S.: You can see my partner in crime in two of the shots and me in none of them and I couldn't be happier.
