When I go more than a few months without busting out of town, I get restless. The kind of restless where a simple article, tweet, image or TV clip of somewhere else (anywhere else, really) can get me thinking about packing my bag and grabbing my passport.
I’ve been in a travel rut this winter. Plans for a guys trip to Trinidad fell through, and with a few work commitments and constraints, it’s been harder than usual to make travel plans. Thankfully, my travel restlessness is thawing now and there are a few adventures on the horizon. In a couple of weeks, I’ll be touring Banff and Lake Louise. Shortly after that, Dad and I are taking in three Blue Jays games (and likely, quite a few Ontario microbrews at my favourite Toronto bar, the Rebel House) over an extended weekend. A short July break in Ottawa is now booked. The pin board of locations for a summer trip is being narrowed as we watch flight prices bop up and down to Scandinavia and a few select European destinations. Fall plans for a trip to Colorado are moving from being penciled in to being written in ink.
All in all, things are looking up after a slow start to the year.
