Ways of Going
March 30, 2013
Warmer weather brings fairer dreams of vacationing to distant, luxurious locations. While I dream of the exotic hills of Ireland, my reality takes me more believably to the rural mountains of North Carolina. This is not the first time that I’ve taken this trip. However, there is a critical difference that changes the way that I approach it. Now, I have no one to take the trip with me. It is a sixteen hour drive from where I live to where I want to go, which by myself is no small undertaking.
So, here is the question: What are some alternative ways to get from Point A to Point B? After considering a car, the first thing that people normally think of is a plane. However, there are other options to consider. Trains and busses also offer a consistent way to get around; however, they do not allow pets. This means that, through conventional approaches, my only options are travelling by car or by plane. However, I have not ruled out hot air balloon or UFO travel.
