Wanderlust, Part 2

Sedona, AZ It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a trip out of the general Baltimore/Washington area.  I spent two weeks in Lewes, DE this summer and before that there was a trip to LA for work, which doesn’t really count.  Somehow, Lewes still feels like it’s very connected to DC – WAMU is now broadcasting on 88.3 there for god’s sake.  I’ve got the wanderlust pretty bad.  I need a trip to somewhere that is completely unlike where I live.

Shortly after meeting Mrs. TKD (then simply TKD) we took a trip to Sedona, AZ.  She was on business, and I was along for the ride over the weekend.  We had a blast.  I got out into the desert for a few walks.  Sedona itself was kind of tacky to be honest – the main street is littered with shops selling low quality goods at high quality prices, but the area around Sedona — breathtaking.  I don’t want to go back to Sedona right now, but will some day.  Right now, here’s my list of places I’d like to visit for the pure pleasure of visiting them:

  1. Portland, Oregon
  2. Seattle, Washington
  3. Vancouver, British Columbia
  4. Bar Harbor, Maine
  5. Camden, Maine
  6. Boulder, Colorado
  7. Breckenridge, Colorado
  8. Boise, Idaho
  9. San Francisco, California
  10. Sonoma County, California

Clearly, a number of these destinations could be combined into single visits.  In fact, some probably should – I can’t imagine spending a week in Bar Harbor, Maine without tagging a day or two in Camden on the trip and I really can’t imagine spending a whole week in Camden.  That being said, many of these destinations, even though they are close to each other, warrant a full week to explore.

Dreaming for now, but a trip is going to be put on the books at some point.

  1. ahhh…wanderlust. I totally understand!
    I noticed park city wasn’t on the list. ;-/ But, I would recommend it over Boulder for sure, and it is a heck of a lot easier to get to than Breck. Plus you have a guest room in Park City! and as for Maine, don’t forget Boothbay Harbor! ask the Schwingers about it…maybe we can plan a group trip!
