I'm in the mood to travel. Perhaps it's all the tweets and flickrs from Austin that did it to me. All those cool people all together experiencing art that makes me want to shake the rain off my jacket and head south.
We will be heading South in a couple weeks. To California to see the grandparents. Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited to see them and get a dose of sunshine.
But I need a dose of new. Going to a place I've never been before. With maybe just my hubby. Or just me. The only place I've ever been by myself was to a theater competition in Long Beach when I was in college. And once to Chicago, but I don't count it because I went to see a boyfriend, and we did what he wanted to do.
In case you're counting, this was all three lifetimes ago.
This is all just wishful thinking because it's not in the budget to take a trip, and logistically it's pretty improbable, what with the kid and the job, etc. And I know if I went somewhere by myself, to a place where I didn't know anyone, I'd get lonesome in about 5 seconds.
But it's those 5 seconds I'd like to experience right about now.
