Vacation Travel Philosophy

When I started this blog I said it was Sights, Scenes and Travel of an everyday person.  The intention was that you could follow along with my adventures and mishaps as I began to get my travel legs. I did not then nor now feel that I am an expert although I’m a lot more seasoned than I was. 🙂

When I travel with my sister and we get misdirected (aka lost) she laughs and says  “We’re not lost, we’re “sight-seeing”. And  what a great idea that is. Why do we care when we’re on vacation if we get twisted around a little? Unless we’re trying to make it to a Tour, we have all day. We never would have had our little adventure on the Longest Dirt Road In the World if we’d been worried about getting a little lost..oops , misdirected.

In Hawaii we went looking for a green sand beach. We never found it but we found the Southernmost Point and some beautiful sights we would have missed if we hadn’t taken that detour.

I ran across another travel quote that I think needs to be added to our travel lexicon. Rita Rudner is credited with this gem: “I never panic when I get lost. I just change where it is I want to go.”

I love it and I have done it!  Sure takes the stress out of traveling!

    LOL yup I do remember the longest dirt road. That was fun. I like Rita’s saying as well. She is correct. You never know what your going to find when you go “sight seeing”.. 🙂

    Your philosophy is the best! Enjoying the misdirection is liek the travel version of “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Some of the best times come from being lost! You have got me thinking about doing an entry myself on some fun misdirections!

      Taking the little mishaps in stride cetainly make the trips less stressful and isn’t that was vacations are supposed to do? relieve stress, not add to it. I didn’t learn it overnight, that’s for sure! 🙂
