I’m not sure if this is just an idiosincracy of mine or if more people feel this way, but I often set my vacation goals up in tiny lists. They’re not firm ‘to-do’ mandates, but they are guides that ensure that I have something to do.
Perhaps this list-making tendency is part of my inability to relax completely while on vacation, but I like to think that it’s partly my wish to accomplish fun things while away from the daily grind.
Those of you familiar with my non-stop work schedule and workaholic nature probably understand this trait, but I’ve gotten a lot better.
In fact, during this trip to Paris I only had a handful of things on my ‘must’ list of things to do. There WERE (and I emphasize this point because I’m all set…except for one thing and that happens tomorrow) the following…
Watch the Tour in a cafe on the side of the Seine in Paris
Go up in the Eiffel Tower
Take bunches of photos
Play poker at the Aviation Club de France
and do a bunch of museum and cultural things that you can only do in France/Paris.
Now that’s not OCD or obsessive or unnatural, right?
Now I’ll download some more photos of tiny cars for you to enjoy.
More to come…
