Impromptu trips...let's discuss... So this latest trip to Myrtle Beach was a complete and absolute spur of the moment getaway. Midday on a Friday I suddenly realized I had a short window for a trip and by Saturday afternoon I was underway. I was in a chill mood, threw some stuff into the car and off I went. What could go wrong?
About an hour out I suddenly realized I had forgotten to hit up the bank and had a grand total of four bucks cash on me. Good one! I also soon realized I had forgotten to pack any shorts, tank tops, my beach sarong, my tatami beach mat...pretty much anything I needed for the beach. So I got to wear nice, heavy jeans in 90 degree weather...and a spectacularly unflattering pair of capris. Even better!
And usually I do this geeky little thing where I make a road trip playlist. Years later I'll hear an old song and suddenly be transported back to a road trip through the Rockies with a college buddy, or I'll remember another friend tapping along to a tune as we crossed the Hoover Dam.
This trip I'll remember for another reason - it'll go down as the road trip where I listened to Taylor Swift's Reputation ten or twenty times in a row because it was the only music I brought along. Other things left behind...uh, a good map. Sometimes I like to explore and go off-route, but sorry GPS, you suck at that. I also forgot my nail polish, didn't have the time for a pedi, and so had to look at my sad little feet the whole trip. Oh, the humanity... So how'd it go? Umm, next time I'll make a pre-trip list like I usually do. Maybe...part of me was digging the chaos. #ilovetheusa #newyork #to #southcarolina #myrtlebeach #impromptu #trips #letsdiscuss #nomoney #noclothes #nomusic #nomaps #nopedicure #ohthehumanity # #speedway #fuelstop #chargeit #justwingit #justdrive #explore #jeansin90degreeweather #mytraveldiary #taylorswift #reputation #onrepeat #travelholic #travelbug #insta_travel #roadtrips
