''Let the adventure begin!'' I thought late last night as I sat near Gate 89 at SFO, my flight to Guatemala City scheduled to leave just over two hours later. Just over three hours later I first had the thought, ''I might be okay with skipping this trip in exchange for a comfy bed.''
That's right. Those of you who know me well know that I am no better than a toddler when it comes to sleep. Note to self: Moving forward, red eye flights should be avoided at all costs.
I'm now in Houston waiting for my plane to board, take to the skies and deliver me into the waiting arms of Guatemala.
I hope Guatemala is feeling forgiving today; I have never been less prepared for a trip. I trust that my dear friend and seasoned travel buddy, Heidi, has done well for us in planning for this trip. I also hope that she's prepared our host family for the butchering of the Spanish language that is about to happen.
