We are leaving to go on vacation (late honeymoon) in 10 days and driving to California. I live in Oklahoma and have only experienced this region of the country (OK, TX, MO & KS specifically). Having never travelled very far from OK, I am slightly nervous, not because I’ll be homesick, but just because I’m going to be experiencing a lot of different things all at once. Geographically, in particular (i.e. mountains, the ocean, etc). I’m just kind of nervous about it. I know that probably sounds weird, but I can’t help it.
Anyone else know this feeling?

Sorry, I definitely can’t say I identify with that! Usually when I travel I’m super excited to get the hell out of here!

I really enjoy traveling, but I understand the nervousness of seeing new things and being in an unfamiliar place.
Hopefully you’ll take the nervous energy and turn it into excitement!
Where in CA are you visiting? Has your hubby been there before, and is he a comfrotable traveler?
Having been in CA now for 7 months I have to say it is a beautiful place with tons of things to do and great weather. You can’t go wrong!

@ Tulip & danedelphia – I love travelling, but since this is really my first big getaway I have the jitters or something lol.. I don’t know why exactly!
@ Latte – We are going to San Francisco 🙂 Fisherman’s Wharf area. Plus we are visiting the Winchester Mystery House which I am super excited about! Hubby has been to CA but only when he was very little. He has traveled to FL but that was many years ago as well. He’s not nervous though.

you will love it! Travel is amazing and it is easy to get hooked! San Fran is a cool city and I’m sure once you are there your jitters will just melt away!

Fishermans Warf is such a fun place! You will be so busy enjoying yourself that you won’t even notice missing home. I am quite an avid traveller, and never had trouble with it from day 1! Relax, and enjoy yourself!

I can kind of relate. Sometimes when we travel, I definitely get those flashes of, “I miss home.” Probably because I’m all about my home and nesting 🙂 I think I get those more when we take trips to see family and we stay with other people, not in a hotel or something because for some reason, even though we both love our families and generally all get along, there’s always stressful points during the trip. Plus, nothing’s where you need it and it’s just not as comfortable staying with other people as it is in a hotel room when you’re just the two of you.
So yeah, I can sort of relate 🙂

I get nervous traveling to a different airport than I know or a different city. I travel A LOT, but new places are always new places where something can go wrong. I get why you’re nervous. For me it only usually lasts until I’m comfortable (like once I’ve checked in to the airport or driven around the city once or twice). Enjoy your trip!

I’m a native Californian… I miss it SO much.
I think the biggest thing that will be overwhelming is the traffic (if you happen to run into any). With that aside, though, you’ll have such a great time! It’s an amazing state, lots to see and do. (San Fran is probably one of my most favorite places)
Let us know how it goes!
