Winter is here , unofficially .
December 21st is the first day of winter here in the United States .
When I look outside my window , I see snow.
It looks really beautiful and I can’t wait to take some pictures .
Some parts of the United States got more snow than other parts as usual .
If I lived down South, let’s say in the cities of Houston , Atlanta , or even New Orleans , the 2-3 inches of snow that they received would cause all kind of panic on the roads and streets of those cities .
However, I live in New York City and like other cities in the Midwestern and Northeast states in the country, the three inches of snow is called something else .
We call it, “Nuisance Snow”.
Some of us play in it when it first comes down, making snow angels and snow balls to throw at our friends or relatives .
Some of us know how to drive in it when it hits the streets or highways.
We definitely know how to walk in it, because you know, it’s New York City , we’re in a hurry to get no where fast.
We also know how to shovel and salt that sucker so that we or our neighbors don’t slip and fall .
As usual , the snow coming down is making me think of one thing.
You guessed it.
Travel and not just doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour to some place warm, although going to Tampa or Miami sounds wicked good right about now as it was 28 degrees Fahrenheit outside.
Nashville sounded really good too, until I noticed that “Music City” was getting some snow too .
So much for that idea.
As you can tell , you don’t need a warm sunny day to think about travel.
You can do it anytime and in any kind of weather .
Wintertime should be the time that you really get those travel juices going and of course, , you don’t need to do a 30 Plus Teams Tour .
The Carribean, Australia , Greece, or New Zealand are good ideas as is Italy or Israel .
There’s only three weeks left in 2017, go somewhere .
Just don’t think about it.
Do a day trip for God’s sake .
Think about your next trip, even if it is a winter wonderland outside.
