reflect on this year and manifest what’s next
Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?
A lifetime ago, I was fortunate enough to travel through Europe, live in Madrid, Spain for 8 months, visit Australia’s Gold Coast a few times, travel through England and Scotland, and visit Kauai, Hawaii. Now I can barely afford to go to the Oregon Coast overnight, but we go once in a while anyway. This summer and fall I did at least get out of town to Portland (OR) a handful of times. It was great, because I got to sample all of the fantastic vegan food and go to the vegan mini-mall. A few times were for business, once was for my birthday with my hubby and to catch part of the Let Live Conference, and the last time was to attend Portland VegFest.
I’d like to figure out a way to take a long road trip with my husband this summer, maybe ending up at Summerfest. We’ve talked about it before, but even though I have vacation time, we never seem to have the funds. And I dream of once again traveling internationally—there are so many places I’d love to experience: Mexican and South American ruins, Ireland, the wildlife of Africa before it is gone forever, Japan, China, Russia, and a million other places I’ve not even thought of recently. So many more logistics and barriers now. But maybe someday, again.
