I travelled a lot as a kid because of my dad’s job. We moved from place to place. I’ve lived in places from Fairbanks, AK to El Paso, TX. And I attended so many different schools. For the past 5 years, however, I’ve lived in the same place, and I’m itching to try something new.
Last year I went on two memorable trips. First, I went on a trip with my best friend to Seattle, WA. I had the time of my life. I got to experience rugby culture in a different state, visit the Gum Wall, and go on a 5 mile hike with my friends. The second trip was to Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX. I was immersed in German culture and polka. And I now own several Wurstfest cups and pitchers. It was a blast to spend that trip with my family.
This year is I want to travel solo with my mom. When we were together for the holidays we put together a list of potential destinations:
- Portland, OR
- Las Vegas, NV
- New York City, NY
- Austin, TX
- Timeshare vacation (location TBD)
- San Antonio, TX
- A Beach
- A thrifting expedition through Texas
- An official retreat location TBD
Activities we agreed would be fun:
- going to broadway show
- going to Vegas headliner (J. Lo)
- going to Vegas show (magician/circ du soleil)
- spa (facials, massages, manicures, pedicures)
- finding tasty restaurants
The most important activity to me is the trip to a spa. I want my vacation to be rejuvenating not only for my body but for my spirit and mental well-being.
