Gracie and I decide to take AMTRAK from San Diego’s Old Town station to Anaheim, then the bus to Disneyland. The cool thing about the Old Town Trolley/Rail stop is the free parking. I realized the last time I took AMTRAK that the silly lot next to the Santa Fe station downtown is about $20 per day for parking… Actually, its probably more, i honestly cannot remember. BUT, the cool thing about Old Town is that there is a TON of parking. AND, if for whatever reason, the lots around there were full, I could park up at USD, walk down to the MTS station at Linda Vista and take the San Diego trolley one stop and BLAM: Old Town Success!
If it were a weekday, I could also take one of USD’s shuttle busses from campus right to the Old Town station. SUPER convenient.

Gracie and I came home to the US for exactly 2 weeks. We returned to LAX on a Friday evening, then drove our rental car from LAX to Las Vegas. We had about 3 days in Vegas of which about 36 hours I was focused on attending meetings as it relates to the CONVERGED User Group http://www.conver.ge/ that I am honored to be on the board of and serve as President.
If you have follow some of my life, my posts on social media, or know me then you know i CANNOT STAND Las Vegas.
Going to Vegas is under the classification of “necessary evil”. Almost all the conferences and conventions I attend are either always in Vegas or end up in Vegas. in 2018 every single one will be there: so, March, April, May, June, September, December. UGH!!!

Luckily, the majority of our time back in the states was spend in San Diego/Coronado… This was Gracie’s second time in Coronado. We never seem to get to do everything we’d like and I sadly, wish I had more time to show her around all the *cool* places in San Diego. BUT, when I am in San Diego, I am basically working. I have a WONDERFUL job that stimulates my mind while at the same time allows me quite a few freedoms, not the least of which is traveling… A LOT.
