Day Tripping

November 14, 2018

Since my birthday trip to California I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about traveling and how I want to do more of it.  I’ve always said that I enjoy being in other places – it’s the getting to other places that has me vexed.  The uncertainty of air travel blows.  If I could fly private, that would be ideal.  But who am I kidding?  The price for a Business Class seat is more than I want to spend. 


I joined a group on Facebook called Sisters Traveling Solo and I am so inspired by these women who take all these exotic trips at a moment’s notice.  I can be somewhat impulsive and initially I was trying to figure out how I could do the same, but I refuse to go into debt, so I can say that I am well-traveled.  What I will do is set a goal, make a plan and take the necessary steps to fulfill the plan.  Consistent action will allow me to reach the desire goal.  Nothing but clear, focused, consistent action.


I normally plan one trip per year – my birthday trip.  But I earn 3 weeks of vacation a year and I’m only using one!  I have the other days on reserve in case I need a mental health day which is fine but not 2 whole weeks.  I have the time, I just need to save the money and make a plan.


Realistically, I believe my energy should be focused on Italy and paying for that – it is 11 months away.  Then in 2020 I can plan on going on more than one trip a year.  For now, I always have the option of taking day trips or long weekends in and around the state.


First stop:  Northern Virginia wine tasting.
