The pleasures of solo travel, be it a Vibes Trip or a Sights Trip
When I was very briefly in London and did not have time to justify the cost of admission to St. Paul's, I went to evensong (visitors are welcome!) and just gazed about from my seat. You don't get the full sightseeing tour, but you do get to experience it as a working church. Not for everyone, obviously, but a pretty cool experience.
After reading "A Trip Of One's Own," I'm now sure that of course everyone can do this. You two are giving me wings.
I am vibrating with delight over this convivial and inspiring dialog on solo travel. A big part of my solo travel experience is renting a car, picking the music, and singing along with it as loud as is my wont on my way to the destination. This may sound mundane to car-commuters, but for those of us who commute by public transit and live in apartments where it doesn't feel comfy to vibe loudly with with Rhianna's Sex with Me? It's very powerful and healing, whether I'm driving six hours to Vermont or just 30 minutes over to Walden Pond.
Talk to me about that beauuuuuutiful peach (?) dress in the last photo!!!!!! What a sweet portrait : )
I'm curious about how it works to hire a private guide - do you have to come up with a list of the kind of things you are interested in?
