I am writing this from my very comfortable overstuffed chair in our 7th floor apartment in Falls Church, Virginia about 9 miles outside of Washington, D.C.. With about 1000 square feet of space to enjoy, we are going travel like we love now in our 70’s, slow and easy in comfortable surroundings.
Up at 3:30 in morning yesterday, drove to the Van Nuys Airport Fly away…horrible traffic at 4:45 a.m….and on to the bus into LAX. Lots of time, on to a full American Airlines flight(5 hours) for a great fare, $290 reach round trip including luggage charge. Comfortable? Nope, but about as good as you can expect in regular coach now days.
Off the plane, into our rental car, full size car for $19.00 a day. Great time to travel to our Capital.
We had some outstanding Vietnamese food last evening within walking distance of our apartment and settled in to watch our Dodgers crush the Cubbies and head to the world series. Great start for our trip.
