It seems that many folks get excited as soon as they book a trip, even several months out. Others keep their enthusiasm in check until a couple weeks or days before departure. Personally, I hardly think about it until the boarding pass has been printed. (I guess that's what happens after 100 trips.) But now that the ink is still wet, I placed my bid to be bumped, and will try to figure out what to pack, I'm starting to get excited. I'm also concerned how I'll enjoy a solo trip to the same places I used to frequent with my ex significant other. Oh well, as long as they don't run out of booze. Scotch - it's not just for breakfast anymore!
