One place? Sigh.
I think if I could go one place it would be … California. I know, I know — how typical! But, let me explain before you start criticizing me, please. Thank you.
You see, one of my best friends lives there and it has been about a year since I have seen him. And frankly — I miss him. Besides, it would be nice to be at least kind of warm :).
Amanda Renner :
If I could travel anywhere for Christmas break it would be to the Keys … but only under certain conditions.
First, it would be by car and it would be with my boyfriend. We road tripped to the Keys for Spring Break in 2007 and it was perfect. Therefore, I do not think I would be able to go there any other way, with anyone else.
Second, it would be at the same campground we stayed at on the first trip. Who doesn’t like mingling with a bunch of retirees who migrate south for the winter? Well, probably not a lot of people, but I can’t wait to be old, so I love it.
Third, Atlanta traffic would be tolerable. Last time I made the trip it took almost 10 hours to get from one side of the city to the other; enough said.
Now to the most important part: Why? Well, island time is my favorite time and the relaxed atmosphere is exactly what I am craving after the craziness that was this semester.
Also, because the only pavement my long board has tasted has been that of Carbondale. And since I bought the board I’ve dreamt of cruising Duvall Street, with a beer in my hand and the wind in my hair.
Puerto Rico. Which I am leaving for on Sunday. Be jealous; be very, very jealous.
