I know it’s only Halloween (boo!), but I am already trying to figure out what to do for winter break. I’m probably traveling solo since Steven has a lot of work and won’t be able to get away. Part of me is thinking, “Yay, I haven’t traveled solo unless it was to visit a friend, for a few years.” The other part of me is thinking, “Boo! We just got married and we are spending Thanksgiving apart (that’s another story) so maybe I should stay home.”
I’ve been toying with heading to Big Bend National Park and maybe hanging out in Marfa for a day or two, but do I want to do it solo? I could head to a beach, but that just sounds blah, I’m not a lay on the beach person–although I may feel differently once we have a few below-freezing days. Maybe a yoga retreat? but those tend to be booked early and aren’t exactly budget vacations. I could go back to Mt. Peale Animal Sanctuary; however, flying to Grand Junction (the closest airport) isn’t cheap. Really, flying anywhere at winter break isn’t cheap. Wah, wah, wah. I know I have nothing to complain about, but I love to dream of travel and my dreams are feeling a bit thin right now.
Updates to come in the next few weeks as I either come up with a brilliant plan or decide to stay home with my sweetie.
