I am going to be 25, and I’m excited. In my family we always kept birthdays low-key and family oriented. But I want to do something bigger. I want to go on an adventure with my mom. I don’t know exactly what I want to do at this point, but I do want to relax.
I want the trip to be unforgettable, adventurous, and somewhere I haven’t had the chance to really explore. I would love for the trip to be September 6-11, 2018. A 5-day weekend. Ideas that we’ve shared so far: Las Vegas, NV, a spa-cation in San Antonio, TX, an Austin experience all inclusive resort (or maybe a stay in Austin), New York for the weekend, a beach getaway, Portland, OR, or a timeshare my grandmother offered to let us use for a week.
Things I have in mind:
- budget: I don’t want to spend more than $2000 for the entire trip including travel, so really that means that no more than $500 for the flight otherwise I’ll be out almost half of my budget just on travel
- I want to do activities my mom and I both enjoy. I don’t want to just do Kayla things.
- I want to have a potential life-changing experience (whether that means my mom and I come to a new understanding or that I discover something new about myself I’m okay with both.)
Join me on our journey to find a great 25th birthday to start off my 2nd quarter century. I am using this platform to bond with my mom and share our escapades. We’re going to discuss the trials and tribulations of finding flights, hotels, balancing schedules from across the country, how we’re going to decide what activities we want to prioritize, and how this fits in our everyday life.
