This last summer I helped my mother move classrooms. For those that are not familiar with science teachers, they hold onto a LOT of crazy shit.
I think what is fascinating about travel is that you do not have to spend tons of money. It is really more about exploring unusual spaces, I highly recommend breaking into a science classroom, it is hoarders gone BEAUTIFUL.
I read an article saying that travel is best when there is a mission. Before you travel, make one up, it gives purpose. In this instance my purpose was to find beauty amongst boxes, dust and papers.
When I was driving through Nebraska, my mother asked me to collect a tote of hissing cockroaches from another teacher, and deliver them to her school in another state. The cockroaches got loose in my car: it was really gross, a car full of roaches. For the next cockroach smuggle across the border, I was advised to use Vaseline at the edges of the openings.
For the love of Mothers, travel and science; places that do not require a boarding pass. Happy Mothers day.
