It’s about this time each year that I start thinking, “You know, I’ve been in DC for X years, and that’s a pretty long time. Maybe it’s time I thought about somewhere else. What’s it like to be in Seattle? What’s it like to be in LA?” I’m eventually snatched from my reverie, no closer to leaving than I was the day I got here. But not after figuring out the best route to the city in question, plotting the maps, the stops, the gas mileage, the costs, the good cheap hotels, the highways and by-ways. It’s not that I entirely dislike DC, it’s that I am a wandering soul, never content to be where I am.
Fortunately for me, daydreaming is pretty inexpensive. For those that are unaware, we’ve got a network of Metroblogs, spanning the globe, from Karachi to Melbourne, from Tokyo to London, from DC to SF and LA. And we also have the Best of Metroblogs to keep travelling dreamers like myself full of ideas. Take a look today, read about the hidden cement slides in San Francisco, the bizarre parking zones in Hawaii, the funny politicians in Manila, or a walk through Karachi.
