Travel without a goal…

Image

I so cheating for this weeks challenge… as I didn’t take the above pic, and there’ certainly no movement.  😀

But that’s a picture of me, on one of our “we got no idea where we’re going, but I’m sure well find some interesting things along the way” days out.

This weeks challenge is “On the move”, and on a nice weekend we don’t like to sit about.  At the moment the garden is getting all the attention, but as soon as that’s done, and I’m hopefully better, I cannot wait for our days out.

We just go – no plans, no mission, no goal – just hop in the car, and drive on the roads we generally don’t travel on.  Sometimes we don’t get further than a few miles away, as we’ll spot an interesting building, or a nice river, or a hidden beach, or a lush forest… sometimes we drive for hours.

You don’t need to hop on a plane to a sunny beach to feel like you’ve gotten away from it all.  Sometimes we bring a picnic, sometimes we’ll stop at a small cafe… sometimes we’ll pop into a supermarket and grab a sarnie, munching on it whilst still continuing on our journeys.  These days out, whilst travelling without a goal, are like little holidays, and very precious to me.

    • Hahahahah! We tried! But sadly someone had deemed it “unsafe” so there was a huge gate put in place, where the bridge starts, and they’d taken away the ramp up to it. Other half climbed to see if we could get past the gate though, but no luck.

  5. Still a relevant (and lovely) photo 🙂 I like your means of travel. Sometimes it’s good to remember that adventures can happen anywhere, especially if you aren’t afraid of getting a little lost!

  6. That is such a great idea!!!!! I love that you cheated (a little) to tell us about your little, non planned, trips. Perhaps I can get my hubby to do some unplanned tripping this summer in rural Idaho.

  7. You’re right. We went down to Detroit for one day last weekend and had a great time just wandering. Felt like we had gone on an adventure far away.
