We arrived at Dulles airport at 12:30 this morning after a very pleasant flight. I miss the days of free food service, but the food we paid for on United was better than I had expected. (Yes, I could have packed food for us, but I was busy right up until the moment we left for the airport.)
Our hotel was theoretically only an eight minute drive from the airport, but Mr. Bookworm lost faith in the Google Maps app when it seemed to drive us first out of the airport, and then right back into the airport. We should’ve have trusted Google. The reality was that we had to get to the far side of the airport to get to our hotel. What ended up happening was that we spent five dollars on a toll road in order to drive 800 feet to get to the other side is airport. 🙂 If that’s the worst thing that happens to us on this trip, we will have had a wonderful vacation.
Next up on the agenda is a visit to the Air and Space Museum here in Herndon, Virginia. I believe I was here many years ago, but the kids were small and we really didn’t get to explore it at our leisure. This time will be different. I will keep you posted.
For now, here’s a picture of the offices across from our hotel. Which make it indistinguishable from a stay somewhere in the bay area, such as Silicon Valley.
