Hit the Road, Jacqueline!

I’ve got a bonus column over at Work It, Mom! today.  This one is about taking a trip by yourself, for yourself.  Here’s a sample:  

Whether you’re going on a big trip or a little jaunt, the important thing to remember is that you have the right to step out into the world and explore.  I’ve traveled on my own for years and I still get the jitters sometimes, but I get over it.  It’s worth it.  I repeat to myself, “Be not afraid.  Be not afraid.”  Then I go.

    This should go farther. Best travel article I’ve ever read. Not having to wait out a boring place because someone else wants to stay! I remember an almost yelling argument in Washington D,C, in the seventies with he-who-shall-not-be-named. I don’t remember what it was about. I just remember saying “Meet you at the Archives.” and walking away ALONE, not easy because I’m directionally challenged and he knows it. I saw what I wanted to see and found the Archives. So there. too.

    Detail, examples,antipation of possible problems, simple planning without stress – like taking a tour before striking out on your own – spending money on what’s important to you and doing the frugal dance on stuff that’s not. Really good advice, Ashley, whether you travel alone or with someone.
