EVEN I NEED SOME MOTIVATION TO TRAVEL

Even the Sports Diva needs some motivation to travel or at least think about traveling .

When I post those great travel quotes that y’all seem to love to read so much and I tell you to get inspired to travel, guess what?

I haven’t been lately .

As I look out my window today, I see something that I’ve been seeing way too much of here in the New York City area.

It’s snow.

We’re having N’oreaster number 4 here on the East Coast .

We had N’oreaster number 3 a week before and N’oreasters number 1 and 2 two weeks before that.

In case you don’t know, this is what this pain of Mother Nature is.

A N’oreaster is rain, then snow, then sleet, followed by heavy winds- all at the same time.

We happen to be at N’oreaster number 4 now.

Once this is done, there’s going to be either 11-15 inches of snow on the ground .

Schools in New York City are closed, that’s how you know this is serious .

N’oreasters number 1,2, and 3 gave New York City 8, 9 and 3 inches of snow.

Is there any wonder why I’m not really motivated?

I am doing something about my “funk” though.

No, I’m not going to visit a zoo, museum or taking a Greyhound bus anywhere.

I’m not even going to a hockey or basketball game.

In my mind, I’m doing the next best thing .

I’m reading all the travel brochures that I can find in my house, which is a lot.

I’m even wearing a Tampa Bay Lightning hockey shirt to remind me of a warm spot, Tampa, Florida.

I’m searching on Pinterest for pictures of luggage, airports, airplanes, flight attendants, and folks going somewhere exotic or not so exotic.

I’m looking at all those fashion catalogues that come to my mailbox every day it seems, and I’m looking at all those models in shorts, bathing suits and sandals.

I’m doing everything that I can to make me forget the nasty weather that’s making a mess of my roof, sidewalk and steps.

I’ve got my heater on because it’s below freezing outside and I’m sitting under my cozy comforter.

I’ve even gone as far as making my two favorite warm weather adult beverages, Amaretto Sour and Pina Colada.

Now this may not seem like motivation to travel for you but for me this is working.

For a few hours, I’m going to forget that I’m in snowy and nasty New York City.

I’m on my way to some place nice and warm .

Say like Las Vegas , Los Angeles , Miami, Tampa or Phoenix.

Needless to say, I’m having a blast.
