Vacation comes for me at the start of October.
I have been racking my brain trying to come up with ideas that are financially feasible and also interesting/restful/new.
This has proven to be quite difficult.
I’d love to leave the country, but short of a miracle, that is not going to happen.
I’d like to go somewhere I’ve never been before.
I would like to not pay for room & board or at least get a good deal on a decent place to lay my head.
Do I want to fly? not particularly, but I don’t want to drive forever and ever.
And i’ll be going alone, so a place where I don’t feel isolated would be nice.
I considered Seattle/Portland/Vancouver. except that I don’t know where to stay that will not be too costly.
I thought about Maine, since I have friends up there…..that is an idea, since it will be peak leaf changing time.
Charleston with stops along the way in Charlotte and DC also crossed my mind. I could drive that…..
and that city looks magical.
…..maybe that will be the one.
