It Gets Me Through The Work Week…

Travel is in my blood.
It is all I want to do.
Salt water infused, road trip infused, airplane and airport infused blood that can’t remain still.

A reminder of this is a favorite photo from the last time I was in Scotland.
It pops up in my screen saver slide show and gives me a smile every time.
Gives me the smell of the grass.
Dusky water.
Old dank castle.
The smell of freedom and the simple joy of childhood.
