“Walking through this tourist town,
The heavy winds are blowing
And something’s coming towards me
Well it looks like it’s the ocean”

Catherine Feeny, Hurricane Glass

If there is one thing other than travel I like – its music, above is an verse from a song I found recently, this is the song I named this blog for. I’m sure there are other songs I could have used, but this one had a nice ring to it and it mentions a fantastic drive I’d like to do, but I think I’d keep the car.

“I’ve driven up and down the coast
Just looking for a reason
To wake up in the morning
Now I’m in the Florida Keys
And I just gave away my car
I guess that I’m not going far”

Catherine Feeny, Hurricane Glass

And I suppose the chorus is a pretty good thing to remember when you are travelling anywhere, or just generally it may help – not that I want to get too deep here, but…

“It’s not what I wanted
It’s not what I planned
It’s not where I thought I’d be
Hurricane glass”

Catherine Feeny, Hurricane Glass

For those of you who don’t know what a hurricane glass is commonly used for cocktails and specifically the Hurricane an alcoholic beverage. I’ll risk saying that they are common in America here – but go to a Hard Rock Café and have a look at the cocktail menu and you will see one.
Anyway back to the plot – I suppose it boils down to go with the flow and don’t panic if everything doesn’t work out – kick back and have a drink (please drink responsibly).
