No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. (Lin Yutang)

We are traveling again, and it is wonderful. There is an adjustment, though. Traveling means no longer seeing friends every week. Traveling has its joys, but the cost is spending less time with people you like.

This week we were jump-starting our cool weather cycling season. We pushed the miles, getting our legs and "undercarriages" ready for the fun rides we plan to do. So it was 330 miles, Sunday to Sunday.

The week reminded us of the costs and rewards of travel. The bittersweet loss of time with Miami friends. And the warm sense of home those Miami friends give to us when we are back in Miami.

It's all good.
