As much as I really love to travel, I really hate to travel. The planning, the rushing, the crowds, the flying. Akemi spent most of this morning running around, doing laundry and generally cleaning the apartment – to the point where I wondered whether she had rented our place out as an Airbnb during our time away. I meanwhile, finished my 388th book on the year. Can I make it to 400 before the New Year?
We got to the airport early, breezed through security, and our flight departed only fifteen minutes late. Suji is a fantastic flyer but it looks like Lulu’s flying days may be over. Although she calmed down once the engines’ soothing thrum kicked in, she was VERY vocal about her dislike of the carrier’s cramped confines. I’m thinking this may be her last trip to Montreal unless we drive – or take the train. Any of you do a lot of train traveling? Thoughts?
The airport freak-out!
Dinner! Not pictured: mom’s seasonal friendship cake.
Mom and sis.
Settling into the new digs. Suji is…uncertain.
Big day tomorrow. We’re going to hit a coffee shop in the morning, check out a pet shop in the afternoon, and then have pasta for dinner. I have my doubts we’ll be able to squeeze it all in.
