I’m ready to explore some more.
I had a pretty good list of trips taken and travel goals for 2020, but coronavirus crossed off all of my plans.
Before the virus outbreak, I tried to get out of town most weekends.
There weren’t many plans. Most of the time the plan is to fly by the seat of my pants and see where I land.
One weekend I might land at a waterfall in Florida.
The next, I might land at a memorial in Montgomery.
Sometimes, people ask how I come up with places to go or things to see.
There’s not much rhyme or reason, except to pick a place I want to see and go see it.
Sometimes I get advice from a friend who’s a much better traveler. Sometimes I look on websites for things to see near me, or at least within day-trip driving distance.
I’ll make a little bit of a plan if I want to see somewhere with a tour or if I have to get a hotel room, but in general I just go until I see a reason to stop.
Sometimes it’s OK not to have an itinerary, or at least to go off script once in a while.
Christopher Columbus sailed to find a way to India, but found America instead.
You never know what you’ll run into on an exploration.
I’ve got a list of places to see, and I’m ready to explore some more.
