Do I Travel Too Much?

I sure wish I'd kept track of all the flights I took this year. This year has been, by far, the most I've ever traveled. I never travel this much. Now that I have the BBE (Best Boyfriend Ever), that is going to have to change in 2006 if I want to attain the post as BGE. He commented last night that I hadn't even been back in Burbank 24 hours and I already wanted to leave, (we went down to Long Beach). So, I started thinking about it. I like to think of myself as someone who can do both. Stay put, and travel. But can I?

Once upon a time I lived in San Francisco, worked 2-3 jobs, and was home all the time. I reminded him of this, even though it was 6-7 years ago. John asked if I had traveled yet at that point. I said no.

This does have me thinking. Can I stay put and not even mention "the next trip" for one week? Lets just start with a week. We are headed to San Diego on Sunday, and Charleston for New Year's, so this will have to start January 3. But lets keep track. Lets not even remind me that week, lets call it now and see if I can do it. Without being reminded. No mentioning leaving for a full seven days starting January 3rd. What's the over/under bet I make it?

Until then, 2005 in review:
San Diego - Redwood City
RWC - Portland
RWC - Phoenix, AZ
RWC - New York
RWC - Las Vegas
RWC - Los Angeles - San Diego - Las Vegas (to move there)
LV - San Francisco
LV - Australia
LV - Paris
LV - Burbank - San Diego
San Francisco - Capitola - SF
Bur - London
Lon - Cincinnati - Indianapolis - Madison - Sycamore - Chicago - Milwaukee
San Francisco - Pasadena - Seattle - Vancouver - Seattle - Portland
Las Vegas
Las Vegas
Eugene - Portland - Seattle - San Francisco
Las Vegas

That's the list as best I remember it. I'd like to see less domestic, and more international.

But yes, for right now...

Current: Burbank, Ca
Next up: San Diego (Dec. 25-27)

Once that travel bug bites, it is hard to stay home. Until I went to Thailand four years ago, I was fine. And last year, I was very proud of my 10 trips, including Belgium and Taiwan. I had hope to beat that # this year, but as you know, medical issues forced me to stay home and only really heavy duty drugs that kept me in a fog helped. Still, with 4 months of being flat on my back, and months of rehab, I still did 6 trips. I keep telling my family, buy me a ticket anywhere and I will go. I love the excitement of a new place, flying in, walking out of the airport, seeing the architecture, tasting the food. I don't think this is a bad thing, but I do know I have to temper the bug bite with my commitment to family and work. A balancing act to be sure, but you will get the hang of it, because BBE is worth it!
