Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Distance. Perfect theme for me as I am currently preparing to go very far away. As I mentioned in my last post I am less than 3 weeks from heading off to Nepal.
My head is full of Nepali and exhausted so I’m trying to find ways to rest my mind and enjoy a little bit of my remaining time in DC. While I prepare to go far away I am also trying to distance myself a little from the people near me and my life in the U.S. As excited as I am to head out once again, I know that I will with as much passion and sadness miss the friends that are currently closest to me as well as my daughters who will not be traveling with me.
A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?
Last weekend a friend and I took a trip to Richmond, Virginia where we took a day to pamper ourselves (she is learning Vietnamese and will soon be off to ..duh.. Vietnam). We spent a 2nd day in the area before returning to DC visiting a local winery. While I”m not sure if the photos express distance so much as my sentiment does I hope you enjoy.
