You’re right I am SO looking forward to my trip. These last few weeks have been hectic! It will feel great to visit Springfield and re-experience all things Lincoln. Among the things I will do is visit a natural history museum and a house that belonged to an artist and poet, neither of which I think I have seen before on my past visits to the city. One of the places I am itching to see again is the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. I was on the website recently and there is a hologram show, I just have to see.
The important part of this trip is having my sneakers. The last time I went I only packed clogs and boy did I regret it. I got the biggest blisters I have ever had in my life. It also did not help that trolley service had stopped for the summer. This time I won’t take any chances if it is the same way again.
I will be writing postcards on my trip and mailing them off to friends and family. Please check your mail box for yours.
Thanks for the movie recommendation, Liam. I will look for Mr. Holmes at my library and if it is available I will watch it before my trip. I already planned a visit to pick up several paperbacks to read while I am traveling by train from Indianapolis to Bloomington, Illinois, and finally a second and last train that will take me to Springfield.
You know me nothing beats train travel if it is available. It is preferable to a long, tedious, and often boring car drive and it costs far less than going by plane.
All the best,
