Generally I don’t mind traveling at all, its just the leading up to getting on to the plane that I don’t like. What I mean is that before I travel to some where or head back home I get a nervous feeling that I would leave something important behind or something that has sentimental value behind when I leave a place that I have visited.
Anyway, I was able to finally get out of the city that I’ve been living in for the better part of 14 years and traveled to Anchorage for just under a week and it was a good feeling too. I was going “stir crazy” by doing the same routine over and over again, which gets very stale, very quickly. By getting out of the same routine every so often is a very good thing for the mind and the soul. Its just by doing something different in a different city even for a short time could be helpful for your mental state and health. Basically a change of pace for me at least is a good things cause I’m tired of being in the same situation that I’ve been (which I really won’t get into at the current time) and getting out of town is nice on occasion.
There are a lot of things that I could about traveling on very short notice, but one thing I hate is the price of hotel rooms when the travel dates are just a day or 2 from the actually finding out especially in regards to traveling with someone who has to go to a hospital in Anchorage. If I had better foresight I could have found better deals on hotels if I actually did a better job looking for the deals. Then there’s trying to figure out the travel plans on getting back home which is a pain of the ass.
I haven’t had an extended or a long trip for a long time, it would be fun and exciting to some extent but it would be fun to travel for an extended time. Though I’ve traveled for a “full” day – like twice – over the last 18 months before this last week. The times that I’ve travels was back in December of 2006 and one day of Summer of 2007 and that was to and from Anchorage.
Though I would like to travel more often but I just don’t want to travel that much by air, I would much rather travel by car or the train. I would prefer to travel by train but passenger rail today in the U.S. isn’t like what you can or could find in Europe or in many parts of Asia – as far as I know. If I was able to I would like to own my own passenger cars and such.
There are a lot of things that I want to do like traveling but its just the matter of getting the money to do stuff like this but when the economy is like the way it is, its just not practical to do so. Plus, the way my life has been going recently its just not worth the time or the energy to even think about doing such things. As much as I want to think and plan trips, its just like planning to do other basic fun stuff when you don’t have the time to do such stuff.
I could go on and on about what I want to do in regards to traveling and things that I want to do but I don’t know what else to say at the moment or what to add to this post.
bye for now…
