My writer's block has been plaguing me recently. Apologies.
I've heard from a lot of folks about how they'd love to travel, but they just don't have the moola.
Travel doesn't have to be across the world (although that IS my favorite), but you can travel in your own backyard, so to speak.
Take, for example, my upcoming "trip." The BF and I are driving an hour away to Williamsburg, VA for a nice, Memorial Day "getaway." We'll only be gone overnight, and there aren't any plane tickets involved or anything, but it's a nice way to get out of Dodge without spending a lot of money.
The economy sucks. I hear ya. But take a look at nearby towns that you've always said you'd like to see. Heck, where do you live? There are a tons of things in Richmond that I haven't seen. And when I lived in D.C., I could've played tourist there for weeks before I hit all the top spots.
It's all about expanding horizons, whether nearby ones or far away ones.
