I just finished the first leg of my family’s trip to Greece, waiting in the Philadelphia airport to catch our next flight to Athens.
It is very cloudy outside, we have about 6 more hours until our flight. The first thing that strikes me at the start of a vacation is the realization that there is nothing that ‘I have to do’ right now.
No work waiting for me, no possibility of going for a jog, no access to a washer for laundry, so I just have to figure out how to amuse myself. I’ve already talked myself silly with my daughter during the first flight, she’s occupied watching a movie now on a Kindle. Sean is doing work and Patrick is on his phone. So I am writing the first entry in the travel blog.
Finished it it 10 minutes. Now, how to occupy the next 5 hours and 50 minutes? I’m powering off the laptop, will see what I can find to do 🙂
