Tomorrow marks the official â€œback to schoolâ€ mark for me with the requisite faculty â€œretreatâ€ (that in quotes as thereâ€™s nothing akin to a retreat about it. Letâ€™s all just admit that itâ€™s work-related, therefore work). So, summer is officially over, and along with it, summer travels.
They say traveling is educational in the sense that it expands oneâ€™s worldview. I got world travel out of my system when I was much younger, and today donâ€™t feel much compelled to put up with the discomfort and inconvenience of tourist travel (not the least of which is putting up with airline travel). But Iâ€™m happy for the memories and experiences of those interesting places I have visited.
I hope you got in some summer traveling to interesting places. A couple of my friends are squeezing in the last minute escapes before the back-to-school season. Just in case you didnâ€™t hereâ€™s a link to sights of some very interesting places . Perhaps youâ€™ll put some of these on your list for next summer!
