When I Travel, I like

To see where history happened 


The infamous tower

Attend a play

Under the stars 

In the ruins of 

An ancient outdoor theater

Ride a gondola

Eat a beautiful meal

I want an adventure 

To bike down an inactive volcano

To parasail

Zip glide through a jungle

I can relax at home

I don’t want to sit on some beach

And “work” on a tan

While a cabana boy fans me 

As I sip a Mai Tai

On second thought…

I might be able to fit that in 

After I climb a mountain

Past the ruins

To see the art in the museum

We sat under the stars in the open air. It was an amazing thing. I don’t know if it’s still used, but even at fifteen, I knew that was an experience of a lifetime. To have time, money, and the health all at the same time and do it all…
