A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities

As great as it was to be back in New York City (we really do Love NY), we have to admit that this time, it was equally good to get away. Over the past four years of travel we’ve mostly managed to avoid winter and, in the process, have become hot-house-flowers of sorts. Last weekend’s storm gave us enough snow and ice to keep us stocked up on winter weather for the foreseeable future.

And for all the bitching we always do about air travel – the ridiculous undressing for security, the cramped coach seats, the inevitable delays – we really owe it a big, fat round of applause. Thanks to modern aviation, we spent only a half a day getting from Central Park’s winter wonderland to Southern California’s bikini beaches. 

After spending two weeks in the cold, returning to the sun and palm trees we’d otherwise have taken for granted felt like vacation. It is nothing short of a holiday miracle.

    I admit, I also would prefer palm beaches than snow streets winterwolrd. Have fun in the sun! 🙂

    Haha, as someone who started on the West coast, headed East, and is now planning my escape back to California again, I can totally sympathize with this post. Nothing beats a California winter!

    Nice contrast. Charles Dickens would be proud!
