So...I skipped a post yesterday, but I'm not feeling too bad about it, because I was on my way (by train, BoltBus, and Circulator Bus) to D.C. for the Google Geo Teachers Institute! This is my first "long" solo trip away from my husband and kids, so I'm a bit nervous, but also well-rested. I got eight blissful hours of sleep last night in my hostel room, ate a delicious chocolate cone (thank you, Koryodang Bakery!), and am now sitting in Starbucks, sipping my ever-ubiquitous iced soy chai latte.
This conference should be amazing. The founder of Google Lit Trips (post here) will be the very first speaker today. I am so geeking out over this that I can't believe it. I will have a pretty comprehensive post about my experience early next week, so stay tuned!
I won't be able to check out the sights because the conference is from 8-6 today and tomorrow and I'm heading back to NY right after it ends on Saturday; however, I am planning to have a relaxing dinner and shopping evening (Anthropologie, anyone?) later tonight. It should be lovely.
