St. Petersburg. I’d have to hire an Intourist guide–it’s almost impossible to get around alone, without ‘permission’. Seeing the gorgeous old cathedrals and monuments meandering along the Neva River. Ice-cold vodka. Absorbing the early history of the Tsars.
Closer to home?
- Santa Fe–I could visit there again and again–A Thousand Waves day spa, the wonderful foods, a leisurely walk down Canyon Road (I have a free place to stay there).
- Washington, D. C. -bookstores, museums, a day trip.
- New Orleans- Cafe DuMonde, beignets, wonderful restaurants, jazz.
- Mystery City- What unvisited spot should I consider?
It’s time. I’ve lived too, too long thinking that I couldn’t. The ties that held me in town are somewhat lessened. I need to spread my wings and fly. A road trip would be ideal. Stopping according to whim–driven by needlepoint shops, good food and the road less taken.
Here’s my pledge to me. In August, I will take a little trip. Possibly to the Maryland Eastern Shore–quaint towns, good food, waterside enchantments. I reserve the right to change my destination and my mind!
So many of my readers yesterday talked about taking off…exploring, not being limited by all those ‘shoulda’, ‘coulda’ thoughts, and the other invisible things that can keep a single woman stuck. I heard ya!
Have you experienced that feeling of being stuck? What do you do to get out? To get unstuck?
