If you know one thing about me is that I love to travel. I was fortunate that my mother had the same wanderlust as me so we got to travel a decent amount when I was little. We went to pretty much all of the East Coast, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, San Francisco, Jamaica and Bermuda.
As an adult, traveling has become even more important to me. I love the feeling of being in a new place and seeing something for the first time. I love learning about new cultures, experiencing new people and the self discovery that comes in traveling. I love the adventures in traveling and the rich experiences and memories that come from my journeys. I always feel so FREE while I’m traveling and am notorious for being crazy and spontaneous whilst traveling.
The best day of my life was when I finally got the chance to go to Europe after years of being obsessed with studying and reading and watching travel tv. I cried when I say the Colosseum for the first time in Rome and I felt like a kid on Christmas when I was standing in front of the Eiffel Tower. I also went to Florence and London. All of these places were destinations I’d only dreamed about going to and to be there in an indescribable feeling. It only increases my desire to see the world once I’ve gotten a taste of it.
I’ve been too broke to really travel lately so my boyfriend and I have been just taking day trips to New York City and DC. We did find a really excellent deal on flights to LA this past Spring and we did get to go to Punta Cana with his family.
While I try to save up money, I travel by way of travelogues and fictional books set in foreign places. I’m a travelogue nut if you’ve been reading this blog which leads me to the next giveaway.
