My first long Christmas road trip in decades is coming soon. I did go the NC beaches for Christmas five years ago, but that's 'only' five hours away. The first day of is year's trip is longer than that.
I am so ready for this one. Friends, family, very little access to email, minimal scheduling, hanging out with people I don't see much, meeting some new people, listening to plenty of music.
Changing the routine is good for the soul, the mind and the heart.
