Far Away Places

I don't like to travel.

There. I said it.

I realize that in the eyes of some, that makes me small-minded...and, so be it. It isn't that I don't like other cultures or haven't traveled abroad or had good experiences in distant lands. I have. But the truth is simply that there is no place I would rather be than my home, wherever that is. There is only one other place that ever seems to call to me:


I don't really know why. I can say that I read a novel (Easter Island by Jennifer Vanderbes) years ago which was incredibly moving and definitely had an impact. But I've read tons of books set in different locations, and none had the same effect on my travel ban.

Every once in awhile, I look again at travel info for such a trip. Since I am never serious enough to actually go, I don't worry about budget or timelines. Perhaps I will change my mind as I age and transition from all-work-all-the-time to hey-there's-a-world-out-there. I just enjoy thinking about long days of sailing and beautiful walks. For now, it's enough for me.

This year, I am selecting a tweet from a list provided each day by On This Day as a prompt to get back into blogging.  You can see my full list of tweets posted on this day, or start seeing your own by following that account.
