Non-Summer Travel Blues

I have done very little travel this summer. For the past few summers, I have gone on a few family weekend trips and at least one trip with my friends. I didn't realize how conditioned I was to think that summer means that it is time to travel! As I've mentioned previously, I do actually have a few travel plans for the fall and elected to pool my money toward those plans and turned down most of the travel plans offered up to me by both friends and family over the past few months. I even slowed down on visits to my hometown; it has been the norm for me to go home more frequently during the summer months since college. I didn't mind the idea of no summer travel at the beginining of the summer, but as the summer flies by (alarmingly fast might I add), I kind of wish I had some travel plans between now and the official end of the summer to look forward to. I might try to squeeze in a day trip somewhere close but that will be the extend of my travel until the fall. I love taking advantage of things going on locally, but personally, there is nothing like a nice trip (outside of the immediate area where you live) to look foward to.

Does anybody else that opted out of traveling this summer feel the non-travel blues as well?

Yep, same here. Only it's winter,, and everyone is off to warmer pastures escaping the cold and damp!

I feel the non-travel blues. I usually prided myself on my summer travels but this year, it's like I lost the heart for it. Probably the uneasiness I've felt since my job sent me here, to DC, a few months back.

I don't! Only because I make it a point not to travel in the summer. If I don't travel during the months of Oct to April, then I'm not a happy camper.

I am a webmaster dealing with few financial websites on topics like debt, mortgage, credit, loans etc. I came to know about your website: from different search engines and I really liked the content of your website:( I must say that the content of your site is quite rich and worth reading.

But only good content will not help you to gain higher ranking in the search engines. For that you require quality link exchange too. And so for this reason I have come with a new proposal for your website.

If you are interested then please let me know and I will send you the required details. If u want we can also do article exchanges.
Looking forward for your earliest reply.

I love your blog! I will tell you that I have the non-travel summer blues... I'm used to spending all of my energy on travel, and these days have committed to spending all of my energy in getting rid of debt. Reading through your blog totally helps me keep my (newly-found) focus!
