It’s a sad thing to be on a journey to places you have never seen, and spend half your time trying to connect to the internet!
We are on the final leg of a journey to the Southland. Y’all know how excited you get to go on a trip? How for days you plan and prepare and get all antsy to get on the road? We experienced that, as we planned our trip to South Carolina to visit some of my husband’s relatives. Then we planned to head for the coast, to let me visit Charleston and Savannah, since I had never seen that region.
The trip has been wonderful, and I had hoped to blog it as we went, but internet access has not often been available. I’m also working with a new camera and trying to figure out my Apple computer. I’ve always had my “limping” pc at home to help me with pictures. I haven’t been able to show you what we have seen.
This morning, we will drive that final eight hours to get home, and we are as antsy about that as we were about going on the trip! We thought that traveling by car would be better than flying, but we might have been wrong.
I’ve been jonesing for the opportunity to blog, and it may not happen for several days. After this trip (which involved four solid days of driving), I have two work related trips, each involving hours of driving,
next this week!
I think I will get my fill of travel this month. When I can finally slow down, I look forward to telling y’all about our “ghost tour” in Charleston and our delightful (though brief) visit in Savannah. One thing I’ll suggest to you: never plan for three days of vacation coupled with four days of driving! After all this driving, my feet are so swollen they look like little sausages on a stick!
Worse than that, every time I move my computer, my fingers itch to get on the internet, and I start to shake. When we get to a hotel room, the first thing I do is set up the computer to see if the connection is fast enough (and it hasn’t been). Then, I begin to wail and moan. My husband has to drag me from the room and find a Starbucks to placate me with coffee. It doesn’t work! Does this mean I am addicted to blogging?
