Our January muse sent out a question today, asking about our preferred mode of travel. My mind immediately went to a meme that makes me smile whenever I see a version of it.
My second, more rational thought was, “First Class!” Then the more adult part of my persona kicked in and made me get a bit more serious.
My all-time favorite mode of travel was by motorcycle. There is nothing like blasting down the highway or taking a winding road on your bike. An open-cockpit classic airplane might have a similar feel, but I’ve never had the opportunity to experience that mode of travel.
More realistically, driving is my favorite mode of travel for some adventures. I mean me driving, not having someone else do it. Next to my biking travel, driving and controlling how fast, how far, and where stops are being made are important. Besides, driving in the Rockies in the fall gives you a much better view than what you’d have as a passenger.
First class on a good carrier is the way to go for distant or time-sensitive travel. Oh, you can do okay with some airlines if they offer extra legroom seating in the main cabin, but even that cannot rival a nice seat in Business or First Class on most carriers.
Finally, to make certain no one thinks I am afraid of the water, cruises, be they ocean, river, or large lake, are not simply a form of travel. Whether part of a vacation, holiday, or a bucket-list item, the vessel is part of the experience. It is not just a way to get there.
Well, I think that is enough pontificating and hair-splitting for today. Thanks for reading and take care.
