An email in my in-box today reminded me that it was time to renew my domain name for this website. It’s been three years since on a whim I decided to start a blog. I wonder, if anyone had told me back then how much work it would be to start, maintain and promote a travel blog, would I have even attempted it? But, to quote one of the 20th century’s greatest American philosophers, Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the places you’ll go!”
“I’m tired” whined my three-and-a-half year old son. He was dragging his feet and kicking up sand on the flat part of the Grapevine Hills trail in Big Bend National Park. As I trekked along the same trail 28 years later, I could still clearly hear his voice across time and space. How had the years flown by so quickly?
I’m a planner. For me, figuring out the details of a trip is just as much fun as the actual travel. But not surprisingly, I discovered that the most meaningful experiences are often the unexpected ones.
