Way Too Long!

Meridian, Idaho

A few months before I turned 40, I went on a vacation.


It was amazing! I spent four days and three nights on the California coast in Mendocino.

I came across the pictures I took recently and reminisced about the trip…

First stop was in Muir Woods for a short hike.


Second stop was a view of the hills off of Highway 1.


Third stop was my hotel with a (distant) view of the sea.


My hotel room was ever so lovely…

I spent the weekend hiking, reading, a browsing the quaint Mendocino shops.

Mendo-8Mendo-10The amazing thing to me is that when I took my first solo vacation, I swore that I wouldn’t wait another 40 years to take another one.

But here it is, 18 years later and I haven’t taken another.

I’ve thought about it, but I’ve never gotten around to it.

It’s time to do more than think about it. 🙂

I’m off to browse travel sites and start making plans to solo travel again.
