It’s time for a top 10 countdown, of the blog post variety. I’ve never done this, but I thought it would be a fun idea since there’s a lot of content some of you haven’t seen. There’s a lot of good stuff in the early years, and I’d love to share it with you because, today I’m leaving on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again.
Just kidding, I do. In 10 days. But it’s always a good time to throw out some John Denver lyrics to make things sound melancholy.
Things are actually pretty awesome because today I’m heading to Paris! I know, don’t hate me. I’m jealous of myself. It wasn’t a planned thing, it just happened, and when life presents you with amazing opportunities, the thing to do, I’ve found, is grab the brass ring and get on board. No matter what. When my husband booked 4 tickets to Warsaw a couple of years ago I packed my bags and rearranged our whole life so we could take a month-log family trip to his home country. It wasn’t super convenient at the time (it never is) but we did it anyway.
We didn’t have to be asked twice to take a family trip to Costa Rica, and when Hawaii came calling, I packed my bags and left. I have a Life List full of things to get done before I die and I’m actively working on crossing them off one at a time. I don’t have more time or money or good heavens, BETTER HEALTH than anyone else, but I make travel a huge priority in my life. Period. I usually pay for it later with swollen feet, popped off toenails and a huge Lupus flare, but it’s worth it.
So today I’m jetting off to Paris, this time with a girlfriend instead of my kids. I’m going to hang out in Cannes, Paris, and Barcelona for 10 days, and then I’ll come home and be in bed for the month of June, and I can’t wait! For Paris, not the losing my toenails part.
Do you have any great suggestions for any of those cities? Museums, places to eat, neighborhoods to visit? It will be my first time in all 3 places, but this time I’ll speak the language, at least while we’re in Spain.
Travel, isn’t it about time?
