Your Mountain Is Waiting

I used to tell myself I didn't like traveling. I got car sick, I didn't like being away from home for so long, I was tired of moving around. While that may have been true then, I've changed quite a bit in the last few years and I can now say I love to travel.

I've been privileged to go more places than many people I know. Places like...
  • Seattle, Washington
  • Lexington, Kentucky
  • Vancouver, Canada
  • Hawaii
I still have many places I would love to see though. After all, as A. E. Housmen wrote.
Clay lies still, but blood's a rover
Breath's aware that will not keep
Up, lad: when the journey's over
There'll be time to sleep

For the theater. For the history. It would be awesome.

I want to know what the real Outback is like. Not what you read about, or see in movies. I want to see Snowy River country, and Melbourne. The Sydney Opera House. I don't think I could choose just one place, I want to see it all.

Ah, another country I would love to travel across. All of it. The villages, the
countryside, the museums, and the castles.

Churchill Downs
Yes, I once lived in Kentucky. No, I never saw a horse race. In fact, I never even touched a horse the entire time I was there. I would love to return to see what the state is so well known for!

I could make the list longer, but I'll spare you the whims of flighty feet. By the way, in case you were wondering, my blog is in the process of being re-templatized. Things should be decent again soon. I hope.


  1. the real Outback here down under is not really exciting (maybe it's only cos I live in Australia). The only time you see an abundance of kangaroos is when driving down a stretch of highway at dusk and there's droves on the side of the road(i counted around 100 in the space of an hour or so)

  2. I'd also be willing to join you for the ride if you need another passenger. Just let me know! =)
