World Tour: Spain Takes the Title

[ 1 ] July 16, 2010 |

Tired.  The past couple of weeks have been the most chaotic of my life!  Slowing down seems like so much fun right now.  For some reason, the wheels will not seem to slow down, however, and I’m about to hit the road again…*rolls eye*.  Traveling has been the focal point…first to a quick beach getaway and then to a class reunion (*amazing time…aww, the memories…).  Now that I’m back in the DMV, rest still does not seem like an option.  Writing this weeks World Tour might be the hardest one I have ever tried to write.  My creative juices are drained, my mood is lethargic and my mouth really just wants a plate of TGIF potato skins…smh (*Translation:  Shaking My Head).  I sound like I would not even know where to find “good food” at this moment.

Nonetheless, there is always a way to spark my travel interest.  This week it came in the form of Spain taking the title in the 2010 World Cup games.  What better time to visit a place than when its favorite team wins a sports championship?!?  The energy is amazing and coming from all directions.  The natives are esctatic for their bragging rights, local restaurants see the dollar signs and tourists are just glad to take part in the dancing in the streets.  Years ago I traveled to Spain (*which was the experience of a lifetime…) and I feel like now is time for a cheap flight over to refresh those memories.  Seeing the running of the bulls, children lining up before sunrise to celebrate the event and the look on the Spain teams faces when they won is enough for me to start searching the United Airlines site this very second.

But I won’t.  This second will be devoted to dreaming about it.  I cannot, will not, would not dare pack another bag!..well, until I have to head to my family reunion next weekend.  Smh.
