Visited many wonderful places; met many of my college friends; brushed with a few interesting people for a short while at various locations; came back with a load of memories to last a life time; probably was able to get out of myself for the most part and bask in the beauty or history or attractions of the place I was in at the moment, or enjoy the company I had at any point in time.
Heading back to the East Coast from Houston Intercontinental Airport today.
The rental car receipt - at around $2500 - didn't send any shivers down the spine :-) With expenses for accommodation, food, gas, memorabilia, etc. running to around $2000 (I guess) shared between the two of us, I think the trip was entirely worth it!
Ain't it a wonderful world!
