This is the first day of my cross-country train trip. I’m getting on the train at noon in Brattleboro, Vermont, and arriving in New York City later this afternoon. I’ll chronicle my adventure bit by bit here on the blog, interspersed with other fare more like what I’ve been posting recently.
In New York I’m staying with Nicole, my girlfriend, who just graduated from Swarthmore College yesterday (congratulations, Nicole!) I’m excited toÂ introduce her to one of my oldest friends, who happens to be in the city these days. It’s another step in strengthening our connection. One other strengthening routine that I’m excited to implement with Nicole when she moves to Boston is to go for a walk every day. I got the idea from a recent post on Zen Habits about how to keep your relationship safe from the everyday stress and chaos that engulfs so much of our attention.
I’ll be in New York for two days, and then it’s off to our nation’s capital (as Forrest Gump calls it…”I’m glad we were here together in our nation’s capital”) for a few days. Thanks for being interested in hearing about my travels!
