On the road again…

I’m off to England tomorrow.

England.  After all these years of reading about it, knowing of it, wondering what it looks like…

The picture in my mind is a construction brought about by old newsreels, photos in books and  pieces of historical fiction that I’ve read.  In reality, it’s probably a bit like home, just much older, more densely packed, and less orderly.

I’m really looking forward to taking in some of the museums, an old pub or two, and maybe a catherdral of some sort.

Looking back on my life so far, 2008 has been by far the busiest year of my life, and the most interesting.  I’ve done so much.  I’m really looking forward to putting together a ‘year in pictures’ collage at the end of the year.

I’m hoping that none of this ever becomes routine.  It would be a shame to have the excitement of international travel sullied by a ‘been there, done that’ feeling.

The Air Force is pretty much the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
