Day 3 of 5-minute writing
It’s not really new for me, but it is. I can’t travel. It’s been 5 years since I could pack up my bags and take a trip — whenever I felt like it. I love to travel and did a lot of it, but now I can’t. True, I got to take a one-week trip to the Caribbean this spring — an incredibly wonderful time — but that was once in five years. When Bo became ill, it became increasingly difficult to get away until I just couldn’t do it. Travel is in my blood. I love to see new places and visit old favorites. Most of all, I love to take friends with me to show them the places I love. My last trip was to Egypt — a surprise that I never planned to have, but the opportunity arose and we took it. Amazingly, that was one year before the Arab Spring. Now I can’t imagine going there. But I do dream of going back to places …. my beloved Paris, the French countryside, England, Austria, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Russia ….. and oh, so many new places.
