It is true! Travel is such a good excuse.
While I am riding in the passenger seat looking at the beauty of the world, like this mountain we passed last weekend in the Dolomites, I am not doing those must-do chores at home, like washing the windows, or going through my closets. I just keep putting it off. I am much more interested in visiting festivals in quaint little towns, majestic views, farm animals, and people that I’ve never met before than keeping the house clean, and since I’m too busy to invite people over, no one is the wiser.
Even at home, when I probably should be folding the clothes, I talk myself into having to book that next hotel or processing some photos. I just don’t have time for the mundane; I just don’t. My closets might be as cluttered as the stamps in my passport, and I have to admit, I just don’t care. However, after Lori told us about her “uncluttering” I am planning on getting rid of those closets. Yep, just empty them out and never look back. I kind of like the idea of complete minimalism. I like the idea of turning my living space into a hotel room. Something easy to clean up within minutes. I’m going to get right on doing that…as soon as I book that airline ticket for my Thanksgiving trip…
Is it just me? I would love you other travelers to chime in here. Am I the only one who is too busy. Too busy to clean out the pantry, too busy to hem those pants. Am I the only one that fills up her time in the car driving to parts unknown, or well-known, or soon to be discovered by the masses? Am I the only one who just loves to sit on a train for hours watching the stunning landscapes rush by while my laundry bag gets heavier and heavier? So, I’m home this weekend. I guess I’ll go clean out my bedroom closet….but that beer spa is definitely calling my name!
What do you think? Am I the only lazy traveler out there?
