Its been a long time since I took a vacation by myself. There is some magic to travel alone! that I haven't experienced in a while.

I find the cheapest airline ticket and it leaves Newark at the ungodly hour of 6 am. And so I have to be at the airport about 2 hours in advance and so I must leave home in the small hours if I have to rely on transit (rather than taxi).

I get to the bus stop and apparently I have missed the bus - but I was there 3 minutes before the scheduled time! So I hail a taxi and the taxi already has a passenger in the backseat. The taxi stops anyway. The cabbie offers that I can share the ride to the airport. The woman in the back seat is drunk and crying and making a scene about how her boyfriend treated her.

The taxi driver and I cant help but exchange smirks. A very eventful start to my vacation.

While going thru security, the TSA officer suspects that my passport is fake/ forged or altered... no big deal really as I am attempting to leave the 'homeland' rather than come in. He warns me that on my way in I could expect additional screening.

The remainder of the journey to DR is as uneventful as only a plane ride can be.
