do you know how hard it is to find a friend/couple that you can travel with?
well, let me tell you: it's incredibly difficult.
it's so easy to say, i'm such good friends with _____, surely we will have a blast together on a trip and we won't get on each other's nerves and everything will be just dandy. well in reality, traveling brings out both the best and the worst in people (at least in my
cynical eyes). when you get a combination of a person or people who are super laid back and not really all that concerned about itineraries or flight times or anything really, and put them on a plane or in a hotel room with a person or couple who needs to make sure that things go exactly. as. planned. - well, you can see that things could go sour very quickly.
all of that to say, i'm so lucky to know several people that i can travel with. and not just travel with, but successfully travel with. the kinds of trips where i say, yes. that was glorious and i could do that 10 more times! let's start planning our next trip right now!
well one of those couples is made up of 2 people that we love (they came to lost maples with us and also krause springs recently). we just love them, and are now planning a road trip to destin, florida together (way too far in advance because we're so excited!). and we're throwing in a one-night stop in new orleans for good measure. because, why not?
here's my inspiration for that trip since it is goal #26 on my 30before30 list.
austin -- new orleans -- destin, fl
we all look that cute when we travel in a car for 12 hours, right?
replace that cute van with some sort of large suv and we can recreate this.
