Carlos and I headed off to the Mainland for a few days this last month. Maui > California > Florida is never an easy haul but I'm starting to get use to it. The whole ( short! )trip required 8 seperate flights, many long layovers, storms imploding all over the country and a brutal red eye to LAX. However, finally meeting our little niece made all those time zone changes well worth it.
