An easy way to travel-that has been my mantra now for many years. Air travel is not for the weak of heart, it has become at best unpleasant. I have decided that unless there is a need to cross the pond, as in the Atlantic, or Pacific for that matter, or cross country, day trips by car will suit me just fine.
Since my retirement from my paying job, that is what has been done. My bucket list has grown immeasurably since I moved, and I keep adding to it. In the Midwest, everything seemed so far away, now there is so much within an easy six or ten hour drive.
In the meantime I have seen quite a bit more of this country since I moved, and hopefully will see a lot more.
Europe still calls to me, as do other parts of the world, and happily my horizons have expanded. Next year, if things go well, there is a plan forming to cruise to Hawaii and the South Pacific. I have never been to that part of the world, and the cruise will make it rather easy.
Cruising works for me, I pack and unpack once, I see as much as time will allow, and then sail leisurely to the next port. All cares are swept away.
The flight to Los Angeles will be reasonably short, in this case the drive is not practical. I’m excited about the possibility of seeing another part of the world that is totally foreign to me. I’ll post updates on my progress.
In the meantime, I’ll share a few pictures of some of my favorite places-perfect for a summer escape, mountains in Asheville, NC and an ocean breeze from Hilton Head, SC.
