Travelling sure ain't what it used to be...
I am currently in the Ottawa Airport, awaiting my early morning flight to Cancun, Mexico. After working and having my last exam, along with doing all the other running around and errands I had to before leaving, today (yesterday?) has been a lonnnnng day. I feel like I have the right to still call it today seeing how I haven't been to sleep yet.
Amongst my packing, planning and preparing, I got to thinking about how we travel. I have always been fascinated by the idea of travel, I mean you literally spend just a few short hours on a plane and then poof! You are in some new, exotic place. I love it. I love the sense of adventure, spontaneity, not knowing what awaits you, all that jazz. I feel like travel has gotten a bit, well boring lately. Don't get me wrong, I am still happy as a clam to grab my bags and go...but the rustic appeal is gone. We still have access to all the same resources as we would at home. While I'm saying my goodbye to my dad he just leaves it at "Ya text me, or send me a Facebook message, or email or whatever." Even though I am travelling to a whole other country I still have access to (almost) everything I would back home, which yes is convenient, and to be quite honest I probably couldn't, or wouldn't want to survive completely without it, but I do feel it kind of takes away the exoticness and mystery of world travel.
Meh, just some early morning musings. Maybe I need some sleep...but how can I sleep when there is a warm beach in my so, so, so near future?
Although I'll be gone, I yes will have access to internet and continue blogging. Since I am on vacation and have literally zero school work to be done (or to feel guilty about not doing) I have free reign to blog, rant and rave as much as I want or can. So, stay tuned for some Mexican fashion, fun and hopefully, sun.
What are you guys reading, thinking, doing this holiday season?
