Tired Nature's Sweet Restorer

And for all these years Brian thought that was how Shakespeare , not a British poet named Edward Young, had described sleep.

We enjoyed a few hours of sweet restoration at the Southcenter Hampton Inn after arriving in Seattle around 11:00 p.m. last night, about 27 hours after waking up in Munich, and earning another 7204 EQMs (Elite Qualifying Miles*) on United Airlines flying MUC-ORD-LAX-SEA (Munich to Chicago to Los Angeles to Seattle). This morning we were on the road a little after 5:30 a.m. and enjoyed one of our easiest drives ever up I-5.

The flights themselves were just fine, and we managed to sleep for varying lengths of time on every flight. After dealing with the mail and a few other necessities we're off to Vancouver. Tomorrow morning we fly YVR-SEA-KOA, our first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii, after previous trips to Oahu, Maui, and Kuaui. Aloha!

*also referred to as BIS or "Butt-in-Seat" Miles on FlyerTalk. Our 1K status includes 100% bonus miles actually depositing 14408 miles to our accounts.
