The Official End of Summer

I’m writing from Terminal A of Logan Airport, where I am waiting to board my flight to Seoul. I think it goes without saying that my summer has been of the stupendous variety, and I find myself — for the first time in four years — not wanting to go back. Not even a little bit. Ok, maybe a smidge. There are people in Seoul I’m anxious to see and some visitors I’m anxious to show around. But trading quiet, wooded running trails and languid seaside afternoons for a sea of concrete and steel and pushing and noise is not a trade I’m wanting to make.

Thank you all so much for all your comments this week. It’s been fun hearing about your dream destinations and ideal summers. And I’ve really loved hearing from you lurkers; it is so lovely to get to know a few of you!

And thanks for sharing this summer with me. It sure was a good one.

    happy travels! maybe you’ll return to discover a whole new seoul. (that’s often how i feel when i return home from an incredible trip). and as for my summers….all the summers of my childhood were spent at a summer camp in the adirondacks, and a few weeks ago i actually was able to visit that magical place for the first time in ten years.

    sadly, empty and without all my best friends who i met there each and every summer, it seemed much less magical. but those memories. well, they’re some of my best ones ever.

      The adirondacks, wow! I spent many a happy day there as a kid. Whenever I was in those woods or on the lakes I felt like I was coming in close contact with native americans who lived there hundreds fo years ago. Many spirits live there still.

    I think if you don’t want to go back then you did your vacation right.
