We've completed the first short leg of the outbound journey. Highlights of the first flight included the vegan-free box lunch and Christy figuring out how many pockets her travel vest actually has. Having left behind the fog of Half Moon Bay, we have found our way to the fog of Seattle. The real flying starts now, with Paris our next stop, then Madagascar.

Started the trip in an ideal way with cabbie Jessica. Early enough that she showed up in her pajamas and a checkered newsboy cap (very 90s Madonna), told us we were her aunt and uncle if anyone in authority wondered why she didn't have a taxi license and then explained she has "the worst sense of directions." She missed the airport by 8 miles..
We're less than a week away from take-off and the reality of the trip seems to be setting in. We've been reviewing the itinerary and realizing we might have been a bit over-ambitious in what we've set out to see and do. Packing should hopefully be done soon and, if all goes well, we'll have plenty of extra room in our luggage on the trip out.
