I just love getting behind the wheel of a car, getting comfy in the seat, starting the engine, and taking off for a nice long drive. Of course, you fasten the seat belt, too. If I am driving, then a road trip is so much fun for me. There’s just this peace I get as I sit back in the seat and get into the rhythm of the road. It’s very cathartic for me and healing…..Is this strange?

As you are reading this post, I am driving on a 4 hour trip, maybe a little more, to go visit some family. It’s just me and my mom and I am either having a conversation with her or she is reading a magazine while I am listening to the radio on low and enjoying the peace. Actually, we can add a third option because if she is reading, she probably has fallen asleep. Doesn’t matter to me which of the three SHE is doing because I am currently doing something that relieves stress for me and makes me feel new for awhile. Road trips give me excitement for days…..just the thought of being able to drive for a long period with no guilt. I would just drive all over everyday but then it would mean more gas fill ups for the car, which we all know costs tons of money nowadays. If only I could afford one of the electrical cars…but then that would be wasting electricity just so I could enjoy driving, right?

Oh well….for now I am on the road again, literally, enjoying a nice, quiet drive…..until I hit the big city and begin to deal with traffic I rarely experience anymore. But the traffic is fine and I can live with it because I love the place I am heading to. The place where I was born and raised. There’s just something about this city that brings back good memories for me and makes me forget the stress for awhile…..then in a few days, I will again partake of the drive back home, which I will love but saying goodbye again to family I will NOT love.

I hope everyone else is enjoying their Thursday…for now, I will focus on my driving! 🙂

*P.S. This post was done in my house and scheduled before the drive took place….no crazy woman was driving on the road and blogging!*

  1. That’s great that you love driving long distances! A lot of people I know can put up with it, but I’m not sure how many of them really enjoy it. I think some people tend to get bored and have a harder time staying alert.

    Hahaha I saw on your facebook that you were posting in advance, so I knew you weren’t blogging and driving, but that’s quite a thought! Lol.
