Being A Tourist...

Sightseeing, an activity that delights the truly idle because it seems so much like 
scholarship, gawping and eavesdropping on antiquity, flattering oneself with the 
notion that one is discovering the past when really one is inventing it, 
using a guidebook as a scenario of swift notations..

I'm still holding my breath for you never know what can happen in the last minute.
Our life is such that even our best laid plans tend to go south, but today I have
 actually decided to use as a sightseeing day.  Can't believe that I actually
 have an entire day with nothing fixed to do.  Seems strange.
That's why I'm holding my breath and hope all goes well.

Today I will actually do the tourist thing.  Not exactly sure where my destination will
 take me, but I am sure that whatever it is I will definitely have a good time
while Arvid attends his meetings. More so because I have 
not been in theses parts before.

Exciting because I am always up for something new.  I enjoy diversity, change 
and new experiences.  Can't say the same applies to Arvid, but I know 
he is willing to go along with it for my sake.  Can be fun!

To all a very good day.  Sometimes not knowing where you 
are going is half the fun.  Makes getting "there" even better.  I'm happy.

As someone said: Travel makes one modest. 
You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

Put down that map and get wonderfully lost...
