If you need 5000 miles badly, jump in the plane to the westcoast and drive baby, drive!

Sometimes I just need a 5000 mile trip… like here and right now, so right before Easter I jumped on a plane direction of San Francisco (without flowers in my hair!)

KLM granted me a ride in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner… real nice and one of the best planes I have ever flew in!

Weather was good so the flight was excellent, and open weather means nice eagle eye views from the plane at arrival!… the first bridge You see is the golden gate, the bridge there after is the Bay bridge.. and San Francisco is on the right, Oakland of the left of the Bay bridge… just so You know…:)
