Tonight I am suffering from the sort of carlag that comes from driving a total of 22 hours across two days. My calves feel like lumps of coal and my brain feels like mush. I am thinking about making ramen noodles. I might fall asleep first.
My journey to San Francisco this weekend marked the first time I visited the Bay Area. I enjoyed its gorgeous water, rolling hills, and classy bohemian vibe. It was a city I had high on my list to visit. Now that it’s been scratched off I am asking myself which American cities that I have never visited do I most want to experience.
This is tough. To date, I’ve visited New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Boston, Seattle, Las Vegas, Memphis, Dallas, Houston, and Austin, just to name a few. Plus, I’ve lived in New Orleans and Portland.
Where should I go next? Should I slip a blindfold on and point at the map? Or should I look both ways before I cross the country again? Here’s my list of possible cities next in line for a visit.
