It's been a long two months of travel (October and November) and for once I haven't even left the safe confines of the US of A. After coming home from my sister's wedding in mid-October, I visited Santa Cruz, Honolulu, Disneyland (SoCal) and Las Vegas:
HonoluluHonolulu was nice. I was there for a company junket and it was only for four days, but Hawaii is still Hawaii.
Shelley and I hadn't been to Hawaii in about three years and really enjoyed ourselves -- mostly doing nothing.
SoCalLater that week, we had to go to another junket -- but this time for Shelley's company. I was dreading going to this (as it was at Disneyland) but it turned out pretty damn good. Weather was cool and the park was mostly empty.
Shelley got to meet the Incredibles.
And we snuck out of the company festivities on Sunday to go down to the coast. This is Newport Beach just at sunset.
VegasJust a week after getting back from SoCal, I was off to Las Vegas for a week to help run a training conference for my company. It was friggin exhausting, but I did get to go to a subzero bar (Minus 5 Experience).
Yes, this was a complete waste of money. And yes, that is Elvis. But I think that is the point of Vegas.
