Positively Getting Away

by Mauverneen
 “The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.” G.K. Chesterton 

It's Positively Tuesday, and I am Positively planning a getaway. I leave later this week for Park City, Utah to visit a daughter. There are tempting promises of beautiful weather, mountains, the spa, and a possible side trip to Wyoming - all in addition to getting to spend time together. And I know when it's time to come home, I won't have been there nearly long enough.

I am so looking forward to it. It's been almost a year since I have been anywhere beyond my general area. I consider myself a traveler - as opposed to a tourist.  Oh, I rubberneck with the best of them, I shoot photos of almost everything and there are certain things I make it a point to see once I'm there (wherever there is). But in between all that, I am generally in awe of whatever new territory I am in. There is usually so much more to see than what you came to see. It's good to be open, to take your time, to wander a bit. Take the road less travelled when possible. 

“To travel is to live.” Hans Christian Andersen

Travel - it's more than just a vacation. It should be an experience. 

Here's to new experiences!
