Well, we’ve arrived. The good ol’ USofA welcomed us with open arms on Independence Day. It was a fantastic flight, and honestly, I would highly recommend Delta’s business class internationally. Great service; big comfy seats; excellent entertainment. I would also highly recommend traveling on the 4th. The airports and roads are q-u-i-e-t! Made for an easy journey all around.

Anyway, we’re here now and attempting to get settled in. Normally, the  moment we arrive I begin to plan my food journey: breakfast at Sophia’s for pancakes, lunch at Panera Bread, followed by dinner at Mongolian Barbeque and a late night trip to Sweetwater’s Donuts with a few trips to Starbucks in between. This time, I don’t feel that same pressure – and that feels a bit strange. Don’t get me wrong, I still plan to visit all of those places, and have already started to, but this time, I know that I can probably find a diner with awesome pancakes when we get to Houston and I’m guessing they’ll have donuts and Panera, too. And, I just checked and there appear to be several Mongolian-style restaurants there as well – whew.

This trip just has a more relaxed feel, and I like that.
