I'm ready

Time for a vacation. Due to the economy, it will have to be virtual. The good news is, virtual means first class.

So I've decided to lease a plane and have a blog-friend trip.


(Ok...I'll actually lease a Lear jet....)


First stop New York.


Two nights there, I think. I'd like to see a Broadway play....what else? Just found out James Hunter will be performing at The Fillmore at Irving Plaza on November 12th. Must see that!

Then, off to Paris for a week.



What shall we do? Where shall we stay? Recommendations?


I'm going to start packing...


Who wants to come with me?

If you're coming to New York, then I'm breaking my diet and we're going for a Mexicana Fiesta, complete with a multitude of margaritas!

Oh, I'm in! I haven't been on a vacation since I was like 13 and then it was only to Tennessee in a car.

Okay, bought the tickets. Select our Paris apartment: www.urbanhomeparis.com

The best resource for Paris apartments. I've stayed in many. ;)

Love the sound of a flyaway trip - you checked that plane actually gets off the ground in one piece..?
Have a great day..:)

Oh I want to come!!! What a great idea!! Can we time it to hit that..I think it is a Sunday flea market in Brooklyn while we're in NYC?

A Cuban In London said...

Can I tag along? I'm sure the tail is strong enough to hold on to.

Have a safe journey. Do not speed too much, there are many cyber-police on the roads these days :-)

Greetings from London.

High Desert Diva said...

Lisa...the Brooklyn flea market is a brilliant idea.

Cuban...of course. We'll stop in London and pick you up!

I would love to travel along with you too. I love your part of Oregon and have posted some pics of your area on my blog.

Sweet Repose said...

Now you do remember where Iowa is, right...I'll be the one waving outside the pink chateau...I live a mile from the airport, but you can land on my street, they won't mind.

High Desert Diva said...

Sharon,
That's the beauty of leasing a plane. We'll touch down in Iowa for ya!

Victoria said...

Sign me up! What fun!

Jenn said...

Oh I am so there! I'll bring some yummy snacks and a bottle of wine for all of us to share when the margaritas run out. Can't wait to meet everyone at the airport :)

Fiber Focus said...

What fun! My brother is a pilot and he used to take us up on small planes. It's hard to believe we are from the same family... I like being close to the ground, he has always had bird and flying dreams. I remember him taking my Mom up when he first started flying. She was pale and quiet and didn't know what to do with her hands...

Nice trip! Just walk around New York and enjoy all the eye candy, all the people from all over the world!

Karen from A`Musements said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the PLANE!!! Take me! Strap me to the outside of the plane, and let's go! (We ARE taking snacks, right?!)
