It was 6:00 pm on Wednesday evening and I was packing up to leave work, when suddenly I realized that I took the following day off and I didn’t have any plans. This was a problem and I couldn’t let a perfectly good day go to waste, so I quickly checked with my favorite private jet company and serendipitously secured a flight from New Jersey to Boston on their new, gorgeous Cessna Citation CJ3 jet. To make things even better, my brother had the following day off from school, which meant that I had a traveling buddy to go with me, just like last year when we took a spontaneous trip to Michigan.
Upon arriving at Teterboro airport, it took us 10 minutes before the wheels were up and we were in the air, and it only took that long because I kept walking around the plane taking “selfies” like an overly excited 12 year old girl. That was quite an improvement over the 1.5 hours that it usually takes me to walk through airport security, get “randomly selected” for the security spot checks, wait for my boarding group Z to be allowed on the plane and navigate to my luxurious middle seat in row 39 of the plane. While enroute to Boston, I used the plane’s wifi connection to plan out our itinerary for the trip and and by the time we landed we had a list of places to explore and a rental car waiting for us.
We spent the entire day exploring the city, and after enjoying the best ice cream that I’ve tasted in life, we took the rental car on our road trip back to New Jersey. By 10 pm, we arrived home in time for my brother and me to get a good night’s sleep before returning to our non-spontaneous, regular lives the following day.
I’m finally getting the hang of these spontaneous trips. Who’s coming with me on the next one??
