Technically it really isn't a road trip either, but there was a car and driving involved, so I'm going to say it counts. Even if I didn't do any of the driving.
The weather really was beautiful - windy and cool in the evening and sunny and warm during the day.
Our hotel overlooked Sea World and in the summertime, Sea World has fireworks every night at 9:52pm which I think rocks because I love fireworks. I tried getting some photos - they aren't spectacular but they are a good first try!
These trips are also tiring, too - one squeezes as much in as possible in the shortest time allowed, talking & interacting with people you know mostly via email or by phone, all while lugging around laptops & luggage and dashing from place to place. Yes at the end of the day it is all about catching your breath before the next day begins!
And the funny part of all this (although it wasn't funny at the time) is that my co-worker and I (we travel together for these trips) always manage to be connected to things that are the furthest away possible - be it boarding gates, hotels rooms, elevators or just reaching the baggage claim! When it happened on the first trip, I thought it was weird but when it was the same on the second trip - well..... Luckily we didn't have any connecting flights on this trip like the last time!
When it is all over, what I ask myself is 'did we accomplish what we set out to do?' and when I can answer YES to that question and feel like we exceeded our to-do lists, then everything is worth it. And YES was the answer when we got home from this trip.
Honestly, for this trip I have to admit that the big bonus at the end of it was those 4 nights of beautiful fireworks! A lovely ending for a busy and productive day!
