I am often asked if I miss tour. And I do, at times. I miss the travel. I've seen and done so many amazing things that I probably never would have done if it weren't for tour (hangliding, surfing lessons, climbing pyramids, and seeing just about every state in the US). I also miss (some of) the people. I have great friends from all over the world thanks to tour.
But do I regret leaving? Hell no. I love coming home to my condo. I love taking my dogs to the dog park. Orlando is certainly not my favorite place, but it has its good points. The local music scene, the Enzian, great food, great festivals. I love being able to spend holidays with my family, and not stuck in a hotel somewhere. I love spending my day off as an actual day off, and not stuck traveling to the next city that I will be too busy to really see.
But you know what I miss the most about tour? Clean towels and sheets. You really don't know how much you miss hotel life until you have to do your own laundry.
I've got pics to post, but right now I'm on my ibook, and the pics are on Nate's computer, so I'll get to them tomorrow. Thats all for now.
