    Default Srini's Travels

    Before I say anything else, I think this blog idea is really fabulous! Thanks a million to the great mind that conjured up this wicked stew, as Greg Koch might say...but then, I guess that's par for the course for what, in my mind, is the most civilized forum on the interwebs today..:)

    I'm hoping the word "Travels" will lose its literal meaning at some point, and my meanderings will be tolerated benignly, as have all my posts thus far. Before I retired three years ago (wow, has it really been three years?? This retirement thing IS everything its cracked up to be!), I used to travel extensively for work - and I do mean extensively. I spent the last 10 or so years of my professional life in a 100% travel role, something which I freely admit I wanted at the time. I craved travel, and jumped on engagements that many people were hesitant to go on (for example, hearing about a gig in Singapore on a Thursday and preparing for takeoff that Saturday). I was lucky to be able to see so many places in the world, and needless to say, tons of places in the US, and to meet so many nice and smart people everywhere.

    Yet, the day I retired, this powerful feeling of ennui hit me hard. Today, I can't stand airports and recoil at the thought of going anywhere. Now, travel is a trip to the supermarket. I make my annual trip to India to see my parents who are in their 80s (and doing well, thankfully), but then once I'm there, I'm loathe to leave the house! Interesting how this fierce wanderlust has been quashed with absolute certainty.

    Anyway, I did have one last fling a couple of years ago. I had always wanted to go across the country by train and managed to cross it off my bucket list. I wrote up a blog on the trip, which I only shared with a few friends. I'm not sure if its appropriate to put a link to it here, so I'll ask first.

    Enough rambling for today!

    Bring it on.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    Super Cool. I love to travel a bit by train, too. You get to see sights that are not right next to the highways.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    I'm sure you all will see them, but I've put links in each section for pictures.
