This year, I am going to celebrate Brian's birthday in Denver. I decided to book a hotel room and become anonymous as opposed to driving to Santa Fe or flying to San Francisco. I needed more time or more of the weekend to go to either of those places and since I am working Sunday morning and going to a wedding on my birthday, I opted to stay in Denver. It should be interesting and there are fantastic restaurants in Denver, too.
The last few days have been uneventful. Work, reading, and writing thank you cards. People keep asking me where my next trip is and I know that I am ready to do something. Perhaps not for 5 months, again, but definitely, I feel the itch. I loved traveling and having the freedom to fully experience life. I think I would like to return to Africa to explore more of the continent. Or, I could spend a few months in Stellenbosch, drinking wine and learning Afrikaans. Of course, South America was intriguing as well. I need to give Chile more of a chance, and I studied Peru and Uruguay in college and would love to explore those countries. The bonus being that the dollar is liked in South America with the exception of Chile and Brazil.
I will figure it out eventually.
