Not. Even. Remotely. Fun. says Our Lady of Introspection. Oh, her troubles! Read on:
Sorry – I’ve been dealing with my travel schedule for the past five hours. I had plans to go to Tahoe from Jan 21-25 with Meghan Asha & Randi Zuckerberg, but I got an email today inviting me to speak at DLD (Digital, Life, Design), a prestigious conference in Munich, Germany, “which features digital innovation, science and culture and brings together thought leaders, creators, entrepreneurs and investors from Europe, the Middle-East, the Americas and Asia.” It’s also considered to be the precursor to the Davos World Economic Forum, which commences that Wednesday, January 28.
So, instead of skiing together, the three of us – Meghan, Randi and I – are flying to Munich instead! A bit of a pace change, for sure, but an exciting one.
The only issues are logistical, now. Because of my former stint on the Hill, I have two tickets to the Inauguration on January 20th (I’m taking Dan!), and I’m heading down there on the 19th to attend the Huffington Post Inaugural Ball. So now the question is: do I come back to New York, then fly to SF from NY, or do I just fly direct to SF from DC?
Men wouldn’t understand this, but the idea of packing for three trips – DC, SF, and Munich – at once, with baggage weight limits AND black tie events included? Not. Even. Remotely. Fun.
