Terracotta warriors (at Asian Art Museum)
Book, ice cream, sunshine, good company. #sundayafternoon (at Rose Cottage)
These pictures have been sitting in my draft box for over a year…. My friend Jimmie took them when we watched the 2010 IIHF World Championships in Old Town Square in Prague. It is one of my favorite memories from living abroad. I really felt like I was experiencing something special. I think that’s why I never got around to posting about it, because it’s impossible to describe those kinds of emotions.
One thing that many people have asked me when they hear how much I want to travel outside of the states is “But what about all the places to see in the US?!” I get how some people can’t understand my desire to run away and explore other countries when I live in one that has so much to offer already.
A road trip across the US is like a right of passage for Americans, whether you are 18 or 80. It is such a vast country with everything from beaches to mountains to deserts and everything in between. The lakes, the big cities, the small towns…there is so much beauty to experience in my home country that I have yet to do.
This is definitely on my to-do list! I’ve already seen the Grand Canyon and visited NoLa twice, but there are an infinite number of other places I’d like to stop.
Actually, I really want to visit every big city in the states, kind of like I want to visit every big city in Europe.
It could happen… :)
