Some people just go to these events and then go home, and that is okay, especially if it is in your hometown, but on our last trip to Rehoboth Beach, we merged our vacation plans with the jazz fest, and it worked out great, especially since neither of us had been back to RB since the 90's; we got to explore the town and party at the same time!
One of our goals is to attend a jazz event in San Diego in the future, and since neither of us have ever visited SD, this will make for a great theme vacation destination! Until then, we will go where our wallet tells us, Lol!
People will ask me, "are you a music or travel expert"? and I reply, Heck no, but we are music and travel lovers. I am not writing about jazz or travel from a "technical" perspective, but more so sharing our experiences.
Travel doesn't always mean exotic places, or far away destinations. A person can spend their vacations at a bed and breakfast, relaxing and reading, and enjoy that more than a person who just returned from a trip around the world. "It is never about the destination, but always the journey"..It took me years to understand that, and now I do..
Not everyone is going to agree with what I write, but that is the beauty of sharing your world with others, you take the bitter with the sweet, and if what I share interests other to follow me on this journey, great! if not, such is life!
