So I leave for LA in two days...

...and for the VERY first time I have travel stress. :P It's usually Mark that has the stress when it comes to vacations, but this time it's me! I LOVE traveling and I love the unexpected,... so I know that isn't the cause... but I also know that I don't like to feel like I have no freedom, and I think since I've never been on a cruise, I fear that's how it will be...

For the very first time I'm not renting a car in LA... I'm having a shuttle take me to the port in Long Beach, BUT I arrive SO early in the morning (6:30am!!) and I don't have to be at the port until 12noon... I was going to rent a car and run errands before heading down there, but I didn't want to have to pay for the car AND parking the three days of the cruise... it really seemed pointless. So I'm taking a shuttle. I hate not having options. :P And I think that's what stressing me out.

Which is why I could never go on a tour... some people (like Mark) love tours because they are taken everywhere and they don't have to find places, etc. I hate tours, only because I feel like my freedom is taken away and that, to me, is one of the best parts of traveling... the discovering of places, the freedom, and the unknown. Something extremely structured like this cruise is giving me a lot of stress...

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining at all! I'm very excited about the cruise, seeing all my Nuke friends, and seeing Van & Jake... But it's become extremely stressful for me... MUCH more than I thought.
