I know people who have seen much of the world. I’ve always appreciated their stories, trying never to be TOO envious. I pretty much knew that I would never get the same kind of opportunities.

This year I’ve been a traveling fool! Maybe—with the exception of Cabo San Lucas—my destinations haven’t been so exotic. But I went to all corners of the US, having gone to Rochester, Atlanta, San Diego, and Seattle. I went to San Francisco, Oakland, Napa multiple times. New Jersey, Virginia, Minnesota, Arizona… See? A traveling fool!

Everywhere that I went, whether for work or for play, I had a great time. Even missing my train from Philadelphia to Rochester, I got to spend unexpected time with a friend and her boys. I saw old friends and made new ones. I got to write about important events.

It looks like 2011 will be providing me with similar and even greater opportunities! We’ve already got reservations for Ensenada, Costa Rica, and the UK. I’ll be going back to Rochester, of course, and also to New York City. We have three Las Vegas trips coming up quickly. Just yesterday, Melinda and I were discussing a drive together to the Pacific Northwest this August, with stops to see friends and do sightseeing things along the way. And we’ll probably be going back to Seattle for her company Christmas party next year too. Just think: a lot of my trips this year were planned on a short-term basis. Who knows where I might end up going?

So… I’m feeling very fortunate. Maybe I’ll even have to put some intentional stay-at-home time on the calendar. After all, it’s really hard to BBQ when I’m on the road.
