I can't sleep. Therefore, I blog.....
I have to admit that I've been thinking a lot about travelling lately. It has been awhile since I have adventured. In fact, it's long overdue. I miss airport layovers, strangely enough. I miss going to tourist traps, such as this place. ( Besides being a touristy, money making hell, it's still neat to see though.) I also miss being amazed by sites such as this. (I saw it when it was an exhibit at a museum in Florida.)
My cheap self used to travel yearly and stay with friends in other states. :) It was awesome to go to a scrapbooking convention in another state. I can also proudly state that I've driven past the area in Memphis where Elvis Presley lived before moving to Graceland. And on and on.
And then...... I bought a home. I got laid off from my long time job. The economy happened to me, and it's a slow process back to where I was before income wise. (Can we say pay cuts?) That being said, the money once spent on travel time is being spent on other necessities right now. (Sigh...... I need a new career......)
I do have a goal though that I would like to see all 50 states before I go to the great beyond. Of course, I would also like to do more travelling outside the U.S.
To places such as this:
In the U.S., I'd like to see this, among other spots:
and this some Fall:
Also, I don't know why, but I always have wanted to go to this place since I was a kid. I of course would also like to see this, and this place. (I have only been to this state on a layover, so it would be nice to actually see some of it instead of sitting in an airport!)
And so, I guess it's time to figure out what to do so that I can make these trips happen!
What are your travel dreams, readers?
