“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” — Martin Buber.
Martin Buber, although I don’t know who you are, I think you’re one smart guy. I mean, on one of my trips, I ended up in Hell! (Well, that’s what the restaurant was called, anyways.)
Anyways readers, I’m off again!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be hitting up un sacco (a bunch) of new travel destinations and a couple of familiar ones as well:
Madrid – Toledo – Valencia – Barcelona – Trieste – Siena – Rome.
I’m in for 16 days of tapas, Sangria, trains, beaches, castles, churches, museums, airplanes and a host of other wonderful things – and I can’t wait! This will be my first time to Spain, so pray that my one lonely university course in Spanish pays off! And as for Italy, well… Any of you seasoned readers know that I shouldn’t have any trouble bumbling around in The Boot.
As I won’t be taking my computer with me, please excuse my absence from blogging, Tweeting and updating Facebook over the next little while. I’m not saying that I’ll be totally disconnected, but I won’t be plugged in all the time either. This trip, in addition to being a research mission for my blog (obviously), will also be filled with reunions with friends, too much wonderful food (yes, I know that already), hundreds of snapshots and a pinch of beach time to work on my Mediterranean tan.
I hope you’re all enjoying l’estate (the summer) and that in your own travels you embrace those “secret destinations” that our friend Martin was talking about.
