Tomorrow I begin my three week travel adventure – part vacation and part work. The first trip is a planned vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. I haven’t been since 2011 and it’s about time I see all the latest offerings. This will be my first time using FASTPASS + as well as seeing the new Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, the revised Test Track, and many other small Entertainment changes. It will be nice for Daniel and I to get away from it all (although really I’ll be surrounded by work, I will just do my best to ignore and have fun as a Guest).
After that, it will be my first business trip since 1996! The last time I went on a paid business trip was to Denver, CO when I was working at UC Davis. I had a great time at that weekend convention. I guess working for my Mom’s work in Puerto Rico and Argentina sort of count as work as well, but this is the first one for my primary employer since Denver.
Where am I going? Well to my 31st country – China. Shanghai to be exact. I’ll be there for two weeks and it should be fun to say the least. Now, I am not sure of what the online access ability as well as my leisure vs work schedule, but I will try and do a Trip Diary for Shanghai. Now I need to stock up on my Emergen-C and make sure I do some laps up and down the aisles as it looks like it will be 5+ hours each way to Florida and 14 hours to and 11 hours back from China.
On to Florida!
