I had a brainstorm last night and after over four months here sheltering at home, I finally decided to travel and take a vacation.
My plans began when I realized that I have a guest room and a bed that has never been used. I only moved to my new place a year or so ago, from a one bedroom apartment to a three-bedroom condo. And though I'm largely settled in now, there are still features I'm getting used to. And having a guest room is one of them.
Anyway, upon that realization, that I had someplace to travel to, I began my itinerary.
Instead of the dining room, I had dinner al fresco on my porch. (I didn't have a porch before, so I still don't use it as much as I should -- though it was one of the features I required when looking for a place. Glad I did!) I then watched my favorite world travel-food series on Netflix. (Somebody Feed Phil. It’s great. The episode last night took me to Saigon and was a total joy.) Beforehand, I also put a little piece of chocolate on the pillow in the guest room to wait for me (really). I packed my world atlas and lounged in the guest room browsing around the globe. And spent the rest of the night watching the local television to see how people from that part of the world lived. And in the morning, I used the guest room bathroom that was fully stocked.
I traveled home this morning and can give the report. I look forward to future trip.
