A welcome symptom has returned- my craving for travel to never-seen places. There are so many choices, but ever since moving to Europe I’ve wanted to go to the frontier known as Eastern Europe- where the east meets the west. I want to travel by rail and live day by day again, to learn what it is to still not be [as] westernized.
I also want to see the beaches on the Black Sea or go to a surf town like Biarritz before autumn falls, but this might be for another trip. Perhaps it’s this dissappointing, rainy Dutch summer, but I miss being outside in the sun, exploring. Its been too long since I put a new city’s layout into my map memory. I have a few months to make something happen before it gets cold.
