Lately, I have been hit with feelings of travel. Kinda surprising since summer is over and winter is around the corner. But, I figure I try to get down as to "why now?"
For the last few years, especially after the '08 summer season of $4 gallon of gas, I have limited myself of much travel since it has gotten expensive in both time and money to do so. Another reason is that I just don't have anywhere I rather go. However, being cooped up in Greenville has slowly begun to catch up to me and suddenly I find myself wanted to get out for awhile.
Its funny. I've told some of my friends this and the No. 1 response to my plight was "Go to Vegas!" While the idea may seem pleasing, I just don't see it as a panacea, and even more so I just spend 6k on hearing aids and I don't have much to blow on a bunch of slots and blackjack. However, I'll probably visit Sin City one day, but just not now.
I've been pondering as to what to do, but sadly no real answers that fit my interests come to mind. However, I DO intend on visiting Washington D.C. one day and go to the Smithsonian. My inner nerd has been salivating on the idea since I passed by D.C. back in '09. Been trying to arrange it work, but fate had other ideas and slammed me and my colleagues all year long with task after task (if you asked me if we were in a recession this past spring I would have laughed my ass off). But D.C. is at best a spring idea, and right now I just need to please whatever traveling bug that bit me.
