I'm leaving on a jet plane

Come the summer, the Colonel and I will be taking a jaunt through Washington, Oregon and California. Leaving from Seattle, we will journey to Los Angeles aboard Amtrak. Travel by train is a great way to glimpse scenery and landscapes across the country.

But that is just the half of it.

Our flight to Seattle and return to Dulles will be aboard Sir Richard Branson's newly launched airline, Virgin America. Last fall, brand new (not refurbished) Airbuses began trans-American flights linking New York and Washington, DC to the west coast (Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Seattle, Las Vegas). There are plans to add additional cities (up to thirty, possibly) as future destinations.

Leave the Ipod at home as flying with Richard will be an over-the-top technological experience...in-cabin mood lighting, screen touch food service, USB ports, in-flight chat rooms, video games, phenomenal music selection, movies, TV shows, electrical outlets, Google maps, roomy and comfy seats. Currently, prices are extremely reasonable; the lowest being $139 each way.

Banana Republic is offering a special additional 25% savings for their preferred customers on bookings placed through April 4.
