Today’s #bloganuary prompt asks about my preferred mode of travel.
Truthfully, my preferred mode of travel is by foot and my favorite place for my feet to take me is upstairs to my favorite reading chair or outside to the garden.
Now lest you think that I am a bit agoraphobic, I will tell you that this isn’t true. I have seen 33 of our beautiful United States, 10 Caribbean islands and 9 European countries, as well as a couple of countries in Central and South America. I have traveled a bit.
But traveling, no matter the method, gives me a migraine headache. Even getting in my own car a driving myself, I will get a migraine. I am famous for saying, “I love to travel but I hate to get there, ” and this was before air travel became the combat sport that it sometimes seems to be.
So lately, just a nice walk with the dog is about as exciting as I like it. She can get pretty excited about things, I can enjoy nature and we’re both happy.
Slow, steady, and familiar.
That’s it exactly, John!
