It seems I have a different opinion on the traveling part of traveling than everyone else. In two different forms of writing, I will explain our different attitudes.
Molly: An Interview with Myself
Molly: So, Molly, how do you feel about traveling?
Molly: It is one of my favorite parts.
Molly: What do you like about it?
Molly: It’s exhilarating! The castles and cities are all starting to blend together, but it is so exciting to be on the road going somewhere unknown!
Molly: Have you ever been disappointed?
Molly: Only in Prague and Coventry. I swear, everywhere else I liked it, loved it, or was expecting something horrible.
Molly: What are the coolest places you’ve been?
Molly: I would consider living in Ireland, Holland, or England. Or all three.
Molly: Where are you going next?
Molly: No idea. I think people at home who have checked the blog just once know the itinerary better than I do. Maybe that is what makes traveling so cool. I think we might be heading to a town by the name of F#cking next. Maybe Saltzburg.
Molly: Thanks for your time. You can get back to writing your blog post now.
Mommy, Theo, and Daddy: A Short Play
(Culhane family sitting at dinner table, discussing traveling.)
Lisa: Guys, I have decided that I don’t like the traveling part of traveling.
Molly: Really? Gosh, I love it!
Theo: I agree with Mommy.
Dan: Yeah, it gets boring.
Lisa: Well, I can’t read in cars or on boats, and my favorite part is going to museums and stuff.
(Molly gives confused look from opposite side of the table)
Dan: Well, maybe the plan should be staying in places a little longer unless we really hate them.
Theo: I agree with Daddidookerus.
Sigh. I really don’t mind our current “At least three days in each place unless we hate it” rule, though.
