Travel Lessons

I have learned a few things from this trip.  I do like learning lessons, even if they’re painful at times.  Life is a journey and if we can’t learn things along the way, what is the point of it all?  Here are a few things I have learned on this trip:
1.  I have been reminded of why I dislike flying.  I am slightly claustrophobic, and have to be doing something on small planes in order to convince my mind I am not in an enclosed space, ass to elbow with a bunch of other people, who will practically trample you in an attempt to disembark first from the tiny tube.
2.  I like staying in hotels, but more than 3 nights is one night too many.  San Antonio River Walk is amazing, but a couple of days down there is more than plenty.  I know there are other things to do, but after forking over a year’s worth of savings for a hotel, I wasn’t interested in renting a car to drive anywhere.
3.  Hangovers suck regardleess of what state you’re in!  But in what other state could you go to a country bar, pay a $10 cover, and see a musician who has a hit song or two?? 
4.  My life is okay.  I bitch about it, but when I am away from it I miss all of it terribly.
5.  I don’t like traveling alone.  I want that constant man there with me, experiencing things and doing new things together. 
6.  Going away on a trip when in a new relationship is really hard.  I imagine it might be even harder for him than it is for me.  Of course I am speculating about this, since I haven’t spoke with him since yesterday morning.  It has been driving me crazy that he and I haven’t talked. 
7.  Always have an alternate plan.  Shit happens, and this trip didn’t really go as planned, but I ventured out on my own and had some good experiences. 
8.  Never forget to pack the ruby slippers!! 
All in all, it hasn’t been terrible.  I have spoke with a lot of nice people, seen some cool stuff, and learned some more things about myself.  I thought I knew myself pretty well, but I am certain after this trip, that I am bat shit crazy.

  1. Look on the bright side. At least it wasn’t a Dreamliner. and nobody ever missed talking to me after one day so I am jealous.

  2. Bat shit crazy has its perks. Never forget that.

  3. Well, I guess if you really apply yourself, you’ll end up in a free room with three square meals a day, and a cool roommate, for up to the rest of your life!

    That’s a perk, kinda?

  4. I’m the batshit craziest. I love that you miss your life. That’s worth quite a bit.

  5. I am a little partial to San Antonio as I am a Spurs fan. I am now jealous that you were that near the Spurs and I wasn’t. I am so bitter.
