    I feel like I need to get away.

    Being trapped in this small town is becoming the main cause of my insanity.

    The last time that my husband

    and I went on a road trip was from Las Vegas to Phoenix. The road trip was just for a weekend. The longest road trip that we took was from Las Vegas to San Fransico. We were there for a week. We don't know where and when our next road trip will be.

    I often feel the need to get in my car,

    and just drive until I find myself in the desert. I'd stay there overnight...maybe a few days, then it's back on the road until I hit the ocean. If only I could just drop everything and do it...I think my spirit is in dire need of some release.

    I did a brief road trip of Europe last year, and it has to be said, it's just stunning. The people are so relaxed, the cities are beautiful. Luxembourg, as an example, didn't have any chewing gum on their pavements. I mean, that's unheard of, right? I mean that's amazing. I...
