Weekend Travel Inspiraton with Robert Louis Stevenson

Weekend Travel Inspiration


If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it again.  Let’s just go!  I don’t know about you, but I get a little cranky if it’s been awhile since I’ve gone somewhere.  I love my apartment, but I love moving, exploring, seeing new things even more.

I love the freedom of the road, or boat, or my own two feet.  I love exploring everything from someplace I’ve been many times to a new village I’ve never bothered with before.  Some of my best travel memories come from being spontaneous.

Here are a few posts that would not have been written had it not been for being carefree, getting in the car, and heading nowhere in particular!

  1. Hi Corrine. We are totally the same. Sometimes it’s just about escaping and seeing somewhere different. You remember that commercial where they would ask someone if they would go anywhere (it would be chosen for them) at a moment’s notice? We would do that and it would probably be exciting just because it would be a place that we may not know much about and we wouldn’t have planned for.

    Spontaneous – the day I was in West Sumatra and I decided to go for a hike with a couple of German tourists. Ended up in the middle of some kind of celebration where we were shot at with pellet guns: http://bbqboy.net/beautiful-lake-maninjau-west-sumatra-and-going-rambo-on-the-locals/

    Sorry, not sure how this works. Where’s the badge Corrine?

    1. Frank, Did I forget the badge? Argh. Thanks for letting me know. I can’t wait to read this article you posted. It sounds hilarious and one you will never ever forget!!! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I go through phases – like right now, I have spent all week at home and will do so next week. BUT I am really enjoying some down time. No work, no travel, no commitments…. I am catching up on reading, baking, going for local walks, writing more.

    Saying that, by the end of next week I will likely be champing at the bit wanting adventure again! Good job I head to Spain on the 19th 😉

    Some of my best memories come from spontaneous road trips, Scotland being my favourite. I saw a picture of a castle in a magazine and a few weeks later we were looking at it in real life.

    1. Rachel, I like your style. That’s exactly how we do it as well. As Americans we sprinkle in a lot of three day weekends which I absolutely have to use for travel, but in between I love to relax as well!

  3. I can’t say I’ve ever done anything SUPER spontaneous but last summer, with only about 2 weeks notice, we booked a trip to Cuba and I must admit, there was a bit of a thrill to it, trying to pull everything together to travel to such a unique place without days and days to research or prepare 🙂 Looks like you’ve had some amazing adventures by being a little spontaneous!
