Discuss: Travel Plans
Jan 27, 2012
True story: I’ve never travelled overseas. Until a few weeks ago, I didn’t even have a passport. In the middle part of the country, what some on the coasts condescendingly call the “fly-over,” this is not abnormal. Flights from my hometown to D.C. cost more than $500, flights to places outside of the U.S. cost a kidney. Or your first-born, whichever one you can live without.
Long story short, I’d like to do some travelling after the election. Probably over the Thanksgiving holiday. Maybe I’ll stay inside the country, maybe I’ll travel abroad. But either way, I’m getting the hell out of dodge for some quality Belle time.
I’m exploring all of my options. Warm climates, cold climates. Big cities, quiet towns. So if you have a trip to suggest, either in the U.S. or overseas, leave your thought in the comments with a brief defense of why this trip is the best. Hotel suggestions, can’t-miss attractions, best restaurants, and travel tips are all welcome. Leave your thoughts in the comments. Trips with short(ish) travel times are appreciated given the small number of vacation days allotted in the private sector.
