Lately, my attention has been on my new acquisition - a TomTom 3rd Edition GPS. It's supposed to be the "most" user friendly GPS around, or so I'm told. I've done a lot of research before finally making the decision on this purchase. I'll be testing it's capabilities this weekend, as my parents and I are going on a road trip to Jamestown and Yorktown, Virginia. Of course, I'm the sole chauffeur again, but this time, it will be a lot easier with the GPS' guidance. In the past, especially on my first solo trip from New Jersey to DC, I depended solely on maps and MapQuest. It was so stressful driving on the freeway while looking at the map at the same time. I do hope that the GPS is a good investment, since before this year ends, I really want to do more weekend road trips.
We will be staying there for a night, so it will be a nice weekend to relax and explore both Jamestown and Yorktown. For the past few days, I've had this yearning to get away from my usual routine, and I found out that a simple getaway such as this really makes the difference. Maybe my work is starting to get to me, maybe getting away even for a day or two is helping me get over the wounds of a seven month old break-up, maybe and just maybe, I just want to be away - just to be away, if you get my drift.
