I was hoping to make it on a standby flight to NYC but that didn't happen. The back to school frenzy had everyone and their kids flying all over the country and every flight to the East coast was completely booked.  

I called Milan and Paula and drove my rental car straight to San Diego to see them. I was so glad it worked out because I haven't seen them in their new SD habitat!  

They are both fellow world travelers so I always enjoy catching up and hearing about where they have been. We hung out at the beach on Coronado Island (which has gold mica in the sand that looks like glitter!), went for long walks around the neighborhood and Balboa Park, ate amazing food cooked by Milan the gourmet chef, and talked for hours. It was really nice to be in the same spot for 4 nights straight.
