Growing up, my sister and I pretty much always traveled together. We synced up our holiday and summer flights all the way through college. But our lives have split off, and now, with the exception of Christmas, our vacations rarely intersect. So sad! Regardless of the short time we spent in California, it was nice to have my immediate family back together.
|My California family is about three times the size of my Florida family. Crazy!|
We flew into and out of the Orange County Airport [John Wayne], and it was pretty impressive! It was pretty small, but fully stocked with restaurants and shops – perfect for someone who arrives early to the airport! Sandy and I picked up a couple gifts for our significant others, then grabbed a quick bite at Ruby’s.
While I’m not the biggest fan of United Airlines, this was one of my smoothest flights with them. We didn’t get a snack or anything [hence the meal beforehand], but I was in a fine mood having downloaded Back to the Futures 1, 2, and 3 on my Amazon Prime account! It’s a “free rental” through Halloween. 🙂
