City Scapes ~ Damn Sam, Where you been?


“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

Whenever I get travel weary, all I have to do is look back on the past 12 years and that crazee wanderlust lights it torch and blinds me once again.  I have been called a vagabond, a gypsy, homeless in theory, among others.  However, the words used would lead one to believe that I do not actually have a home.  Anyone who knows me, knows that no matter where I lay my hat, Spokane is my home.  I just have a natural urge to travel.  I love the food, the sights, the drink, the sounds.

As much as I love to wander and roam… to me there’s really no better place than home.  Until I am ready to go again. It’s the only real addiction I have.

“The world is full of wonderful things you haven’t seen yet. Don’t ever give up on the chance of seeing them.” ~J.K. Rowling

“Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.” ~ Ray Bradbury

“You’re not sorry to go, of course. With people like us our home is where we are not… No one person in the world is necessary to you or to me.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

“There’s a race of men that don’t fit in,
A race that can’t sit still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain’s crest; Their’s is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don’t know how to rest.”
~Robert Service

  1. That struck a chord with me. I have wanderlust and though I haven’t been to a quarter of the places you’ve obviously seen, the worst thing about Covid has been the inability to travel.

    • I have been super fortunate and then I landed a job that took me to so many different places as well. I’m looking forward to retirement because my plan is to revisit all of the states that I’ve visited in the United States.. And the very few that I’ve missed. But I’m lucky because I also have friends who will continue to work in these amazing places and I can visit them there!

    • Off and on that’s been the point of this blog. I love looking back on my travels. And sometimes after you’re finished traveling you can kind of forget about what happened so it’s been fun putting these together.

Watcha wanna say...
