My husband and I took a short trip up to New York City this past weekend. We met two guys from Israel on a cruise last year, and the amazing power of social media allowed us to keep in touch! When both of them were back on our side of the globe, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit them.
It was a short trip, filled with amazing chocolate, Hunger Games geekery, delicious food, and a strange case of life imitating art. But other than seeing our friends, the highlight of the trip was definitely our visit to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, specifically to see the space shuttle Enterprise!
Before I caught the writing bug in middle school, I was a huge nerd. Okay, you’ve got me–I’m still a totally huge nerd. But back then, I started out as a space nerd. Went to Space Camp three times. Loved Star Trek. The whole shebang.
I’ll admit it. I got a little teary-eyed when we walked into the pavilion to see the Enterprise. It was a moment. However, I’d already seen the mock-up shuttles at Kennedy Space Center and in Huntsville, Alabama, so I still knew what to expect. My husband, on the other hand, totally ruined the moment by exclaiming, “It’s so big!”
It’s something, alright.
