Travel, Just Go Anywhere

Canal of Amsterdam

I have the travel bug. You know that bug. We all get it some times. It’s especially hard when the bug wants to go to places like Tokyo, Iceland, ooohhh the Easter Island, and Ushuaia. I know where my bug came from. I’ve been diligently catching up on old episodes of No Reservations and The Layover. Plus I just recently watched 180 Degrees South, a documentary about this guy’s journey to Patagonia. AND currently I have a friend eating delicious fresh sushi in Japan and our very own Howard is in Taipei exploring the night markets.

Many times Bourdain would say, on his show, to just go and travel. While I would love to do it, money has always been THE biggest factor. How am I going to pay for this trip to Patagonia? I guess I can save but then I got so much crap to deal with here at home (rent, bills, bills…BILLS).

Of course I can start off with places more nearby. Did you know one of the places on my to-go list is Mt Rushmore? Yep. I like that sort of stuff. Toronto and Montreal is also nearby enough to do a quick long weekend trip. Heck even places like Portland, VT would probably make a good trip. Hopefully this year I’ll make another trek out to Seattle and go abroad (somewhere close like London).

Where would you like to go this year?

    Sadly, I haven’t been feeling the travel bug lately :*( Though my lovely cousin is about to give birth in Hong Kong and I would love to be there for her when her special time comes. I’m just so happy for her. Her first trimester was really unstable, so I am so relieved that she (and the amazing fetus) pulled through. :)

    Though I do have a thing for Easter Europe in recent years (hence my nearest vacation to Germany, Czech, and Turkey).
