Long Drives

My husband and I have been talking forever about going on a lighthouse road trip. There are several we can hit in a three hour radius with our city in the center (can I do that, measure radius in terms of time?). That would be cool. I’ve long been interested in lighthouses and I’ve only been in a couple. I’ve seen several from a distance in various countries, but it’s not really like getting up close and personal. I think it would be great to live in one. Do you remember that Australian kiddie TV show from the late ‘80s or early ‘90s? It’s called “Round the Twist” and the Twist family lived in a lighthouse and had all sorts of adventures. Anyway, I’m not particularly fond of long car drives. I used to love them, but ever since I had to travel 3 hours each way (for a total waste of 6 hours of weekend time) every week when I was living in Subic, I haven’t cared for it so much anymore. Mark is perpetually window shopping for campers or thinking of converting an old minibus into one, which means he also looks at camper parts. I don’t know. Maybe if I didn’t have to worry about schedules, and if the seats were really comfy, and if the sights were really worth it, I’d be into long drives again.

The drive is so often a necessary part of the trip. I like to take slower roads and look at houses, farms, woods, whatever. I'm no longer in love with fast roads.

You would love the sceneries from Isabela to Ilocos. Let's do that someday. :)

@Sharkbytes: Great sights would make a long drive definitely worth it.

@Christine: Sure, let's someday. In the future, lol. Long drives aren't easy for little kids. Or their moms.
