“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself ” -Wallace Stevens
The joy of traveling to me includes more than just arriving at the desired location. I love planning the trip in it’s entirety. It’s like planning the perfect date for myself. Which airline will I choose? Will I use a hotel or a rental property? What’s the best restaurant there? Where are the most scenic landmarks? (I probably missed my calling as a travel agent).
It’s almost been a year since my last vacation. As someone who generally travels several times a year, I’m starting to feel stir-crazy. My latest vacation was to the Oregon coast. I chose to go to Oregon because I’ve been infatuated with the Pacific Northwest since I’ve learned to read. I was really into geography and there was a set of books based on geographical locations in the United States. I loved all of the books but I was captivated by the Northwest edition. I imagined myself in many scenarios in many places. I can honestly say that actually going put my imagination to shame. I did the tourist thing in Portland for a day then I spent several days on the beach at Waldport. While it was a little too chilly for my taste, it was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. I am completely in love with the Pacific Northwest. The lonely but beautifully rugged coastline was a decent trade off for warmer temperatures.
You’re probably wondering when will I get to the X-Rated part. I won’t. My last vacation was actually just that… a vacation. I was celebrating my success and also mourning. I was lucky enough to acquire a beach rental in a location where the sun both rose and set on the beach. I needed to feel liberated from the concerns of life so I flew a kite on the beach at sunset with my favorite music serenading the scene. I watched the sunrise alone while devoting a monologue to a friend who had passed. I also did the tourist thing along the coast between sunrises and sunsets. Visited several coastal towns including Newport. In one of those towns, I visited my first lighthouse. While touring these towns, I somehow became lost in a forest looking for a waterfall that I ended up finding on the way back due to timing and tides. There are so many wonderful memories from that vacation.
That brings me to current time. The main reason I haven’t traveled in awhile is because I haven’t had any urge or desire to go anywhere. The trip to Oregon was so breathtaking that it will be hard to top. Not even servitude can cause me to budge on the fact I only travel to places I want to go. I love visiting new places but there has to be some kind of scenic value in my perspective to visit.
I’ve been considering going to San Francisco, DC, Atlanta, and LA this year. San Francisco and DC are high on the list because I have a couple of subs in those locations that have been longing after my presence for over a year now. Atlanta is a possibility for shooting some clips but I’m not wholeheartedly committed to it yet. With that being said, if you are aware of any reputable fetish videographers in the mentioned locations, please let me know. As far as LA, I’m planning on attending DomCon. Or at least the weekend of.
As far as leisure trips this year, my heart is stuck on returning to either the Pacific Northwest or Denver. Seeing various mountains, beaches, Redwood forests, and lakes. A Denver trip would more so just be a quick weekend getaway to party in the city at night and enjoy nature by day. I love the mountain views and visiting Red Rock but I have yet to enjoy all the scenic views that Colorado has to offer.
I don’t like taking trips just for the sake of getting away. It’s actually a spiritual experience for me. I love breathing in the scent of a place that isn’t home. Tasting the regional cuisines that these areas have to offer. Talking with new people while in awe of how our paths crossed and delivered us to this conversation. Hearing the unfamiliar sounds that the wildlife and terrain has to offer. Waking up to gorgeous views. Every time I return home, I realize where I’m residing has beauty too. I just crave adventure and beautiful landscapes from time to time.
To conclude, I wrote this because spring is pretty much here. For me, March-October is traveling season and obviously I want to travel. I also just wanted to share a piece of myself that isn’t necessarily NSFW. I might be doing more of that in the future because I enjoy connecting based on common interests.
