After seven days in New Orleans I was getting stir crazy and ready to roll on. Even changing hotels a few times didn’t help! What has happened to me, I’m ruined, will sedentary life ever work for me again? When we take off for two weeks at Christmas I’m always ready to head back by the end. But how can a city as fun and diverse as New Orleans not hold my attention. I think this is in part to my disliking of urban living. My office of is in a major metropolitan area and we lived in Minneapolis/St. Paul for six years before hitting the road. At that time we were both really ready to get out of the urban environment.
The pace of this tour in maddening at times but keeps things fresh, only a few location have we wished that an extra day was available. One of the comments we hear most often is how in the world we can stand to travel so much. It is more than just liking the lifestyle or liking to travel. This just fits us. I like having my time for me and not bothering with housework. Can it really be possible that living on the road is easier for us than living in a house somewhere? Am I really just a nomad? We joke about it but honestly it could explain so much.
I mean come on! We saw some great things.
We had killer grub
Visited with great friends
And oh the nightlife!!!!
Maybe it is just too crazy for me here, I still would love to move to Asheville, NC but who knows what I’ll think if we’d stayed there an entire week.
