Sometimes You Just Need To Get Away

Have you ever just wanted to hop in your car and drive?  Just getaway from the sometimes hum-drum of your everyday life and experience something new?  I have.  In fact, I had that feeling recently.  I think winter probably does it to us most often, because we spend so much time indoors and there are so many cold, gloomy days that you just want something fresh.  A couple of weekends ago, I decided to hop in my car and drive to Florida – Jacksonville to be exact (this is where I apologize to my friends who live in Jacksonville that I didn't get to see. It was a quick trip.  I'll be back.).  I was so over the cold weather and wanted to feel the sunshine on my face and some sand between my toes.  I wanted to be somewhere new for a couple of days and have my own little adventure.  I think there's nothing that makes me feel more grown-up than traveling alone, particularly to somewhere I've never been before (these bills that I have should be what makes me feel grown-up, but I digress).  I love to see new places, new people, and experience new things.  I hope that this will be the first of many spontaneous weekend road trips this year.  There are many places within driving distance, some I've been to before and some I haven't, that I want to visit this year.  For now, add this trip to the "Travel Somewhere I've Never Been Before" column.

    Ohhhh when I think about the writing I could get done by taking a solo trip. I don't think I've ever driven a long distance alone. Now you've got me thinking of places to visit……
