Goodbye, ABQ

3 nights in Albuquerque + 4 nights in Santa Fe + 3 nights in Durango = 1 very contented Gina Marie. But alas, it’s over.

I cried when I left Albuquerque, and I’m generally not the crying type. Sure, I may have been on Day 1 of my period and sure, I may have just learned via email that the current NYC landlord intended to increase our rent $600 PER MONTH if we were to re-sign the lease on our Park Slope 2 bedroom for another year . . . but I was also crying because I was legitimately sad that this vacation, my epic Southwestern adventure, was drawing to a close. Goodbye long drives and bright blue skies and mountains in every backdrop. Goodbye, Albuquerque International Sunport, the only airport I’ve ever witnessed to have a dedicated meditation room. Where else on earth am I going to find that? Take me back already!

ABQ was easily the cleanest, most spacious, most welcoming airport I have visited in recent memory.

  1. Time to move! Get out of NYC and embrace the majestic! Sounds like it is where you belong.

    1. Yes., indeed. I’m strongly considering it. I apologize for the delayed response. I just got this notification today. Strange!
