Travel Destination Part 4
Posted on February 13, 2018
So we're two or three votes away from sending me off on this vacation, fact-finding mission, spirit-quest, or whatever this trip might turn into. I still feel like it's too early to start researching the cities, or getting excited about what I could find in each one. The question I've been asking myself recently is, "How do I maintain an open mind while also very much wanting something significant to happen?" F Scott Fitzgerald said the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
Going into this vote, what i'm hoping to obtain from all of you -- beyond the yes or no vote -- are your travel philosophies or routines or guiding principles that help you maximize your time and connection in any given place. That will help me immeasurably once I'm in situ, and will yield more satisfying reports from me when I check in with all of you.
Five cities remain and I’ve split them randomly…
Vote yes for:
New Orleans, Atlanta, Kansas City
Vote no for:
Nashville, St. Louis.
