The problem with travel, is that it leaves you with a taste for MORE.
I've been back in Los Angeles, with the fiery skies and streets filled with homeless people. (well both are exaggerations but you get the point) for over a week now, and all I want to do is be AWAY.
Away from home.
From the familiar.
From the mundane.
From my laptop.
From my ZOOM world.
From my bed.
From my closet.
From my cats, even. (Shhh....don't tell them)
As life and work is becoming more virtual, more physically remote, I am tempted to find myself a beautiful inspiring scenery somewhere in nature with a comfy bed, reliable internet and a good cup of coffee. What else will I need!? Oh, sure - some vegan food options won't hurt. And maybe a pool or a beach. Especially in hot weather. And maybe good air-conditioning. And a patio or a deck. And a.... Know what? I don't need all that. Just the top four please: NATURE, BED, WIFI, COFFEE. Winning foursome right there. Boom.
Stay tuned for another travel log / road trip in the very near future. It's coming.
Soon...I'll be AWAY.
