2010 Travel?

Prompt: Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?  [#reverb10]

I went to Tupper Lake (for a week) and Woodward, Pennsylvania (twice, for an overnight, meaning two pairs of back-to-back days of driving 7 1/2 hours).   An overnight in Plymouth in a houseful of women, on the beach.  A boatride in Scituate. Clearly not a big travel year. Such a cut and dry answer, I decided to post even though yesterday, said I wouldn’t.


Don’t have time at the moment to upload pictures from Tupper Lake — (there were 900).  I got to play with my new camera that week!

(K. went to China six times, India once, and Korea once or twice.  Not glamorous trips, but . . . )

In 2010 I’d like to go to Colorado, California, and see the Grand Canyon.  Those are possibles.  Wouldn’t it be lovely if I could also manage a trip to Italy (for the food, not the art), southern France, Greece, Spain, or the Caribbean?  Maybe like Queen Latifah, in “The Last Holiday”, I’ll start me a ‘Book of Possibilities’.  (That’s a movie I’ve decided needs to be part of my December viewing — along with Elf, and at least a portion of “It’s a Wonderful Life” — (second half is just right, I’ve learned)).

Observation about this exercise — of the three prompts I’ve done — very, very geared toward young, fresh-out-of-college people.

What exciting things did I do this year? (not travel-related?!)  Grew potatoes for the first time.

Went to many nail-biting track meets for Newton South, winter and spring.  Made quilts.  Read a LOT of good books (that’s for another post).  Got a job and worked it for half a year (still working it) (one of the benefits there? – buying shoes that cost over $29 for the third time in a decade and a half – wahoo!!). Explored Salem. Maintained one garden in Boston and installed some foundation beds here in Newton. Learned how to weave fabric strips, a la Jude Hill.

See?  It’s a different question, with a much more full kind of answer.
