I'm heading the the United States today and will spend my first 4th of July in the land of the free and home of the brave. I'm seriously very, very excited.
I'm a little bit of a nervous traveler, and hope the stories one reads about the TSA aren't my reality and I zoom through LAX to SFO ...
I have had a long-time love of the United States and everything the country stands for. Super excited, lots to see and do and I hope it will be a lot of fun.
Turns out they weren't true. As I write this update many years later, for the most part TSA has been efficient and humorous in what must be a difficult job.
