The trip you never took


So why are there pics of all these places? Keep reading...




You know those expressions like "the son I never had" or I guess "you're like the friend I never had"? Well this one derives from those, and is one I made up entirely on my own. Its "the trip I never took". So, besides Mexico, and a couple other states other than California, I haven't travelled too far from home. But who says I can't plan these things? Anyway, these are some tips, places, and things I've come up with. Hopefully they will help you brainstorm on your plans to the trip you never took but might someday.
TIPS:
-a structured bag for a night out
-camera, namely digital, having to buy film constantly was so 2007. (I say this because I got a digital camera for Christmas and it much less hassle then my OTHER camera).
-when life gives you downtime make some awesome sketches!
-make sure you rest the day you get to your destination. That way you can hit the sites the next day!
-let yourself be inspired!

Technology is a beautiful thing, this mug talks it goes something like "mmmmm ahhhhhh....liquid heaven". Who wouldnt want to bring this along?

I have a feeling that if that the places I want to go to are well...cold. And I think I would like to go to someplace foreign in the wintertime. So it would be important to keep the gloves and scarf handy.





I'd just figure that depending on the person, if you had downtime on your trip, you'd probably a)sleep or b)fill up the time. So, for the more literary type I'd suggest a journal, and fro the more artistic type like myself, I'd suggest a huge sketchbook. Plus some expert drawing pencils. For more journals you can look at bn.com. And for inexpensive art supplies check out rexart.com.
I found this on amazon.com, and judging by the description of it, this looks like a good quick read. It's supposed to be memoirs of Marc Jacobs and whatnot...and well lets face it MJ is a total genius! I'd be thrilled to read this, plus I am way excited to see his documentary that's coming in February on the sundance channel.
