Travel Theme: Spooky

I’m not feeling the Halloween spirit this year. Sadly, this costumed holiday falls on a work day. I don’t have the energy to deal with trick-or-treaters and party people when I have to be at work before sunrise.

Maybe next year. For now, I stumbled on vacation photos that would fit this week’s Travel Theme: Spooky.

We gave Hugo, the bat, a free trip to California. We’re trying to find him a bat cave geocache for his new home.

The transition to life back in the States feels surreal. The sights, flavors and people of Spain have turned into a dream.

I’ve returned to my American morning habit of strong Starbucks coffee (with fresh ground beans) and last night’s 11 PM aircheck. Then driving to work before sunrise.

I have my vacation photos. I nearly filled up my iPhone 4 with all the files. Totally worth it.

Now, I can look back at the best meal of my life.
