Hi. My name is Veronica and I have a problem.
I have a travel bug… it’s itching inside and I want to go everywhere!
To warn you: I am going to add in pictures of past travels throughout this blog post because I am feeling nostalgic. I will spare you Maine/Italy/Greece since those have been in recent posts. You’re welcome.
I really like to travel. Thanks to my family, I grew up visiting new places and it has become a part of me. The last couple of years have been interesting for me figuring out career/health/relationship… you know, that “stuff” but now that I am feeling more settled, I want to go!
In fact, before meeting Mike and finding a good job after graduation, I wanted to work on a cruise ship just to travel the world! I don’t ever regret how things have panned out, but I do wish I could have had the time to do both!
To catch you up to speed, I booked our flights to see my family in a few weeks (yay!) and then booked our cruise for the spring (eek!). This has been the bite that started the itch.
Add to this that my friends are willing to travel to Finland and Norway with me, keeping bringing up returning to London, finding cruises to Cuba, talking about Amsterdam, telling me that flights are good to Iceland and to Hawaii… I mean, really, this isn’t my fault. I’ve got pinterest boards galore planning drips to wonderful destinations. Mike indulges me by planning imaginary (for now) trips to Fiji and the Galapagos.
Part of the trouble lies in the fact that I have loved all of my travels so much that I want to do them again! If someone mentions Alaska… yep I want to go. Have I been? Yes. Did I love it? Yes. Do I want to do it again? Yep. Oh, you want to go to Ireland? I had a great time, I’d go back! Spain? Yeah, I’ve been! It’s beautiful and the paealla was so good, ok, I’ll go.
This is not even taking into account all of the places I want go that are closer to home. I’ve never been to Washington, DC. Mike wants to visit Yellowstone more than anything else. I want to visit friends and family all over the country!
So where do I MOST want to go?
I really don’t know.
My itch right now is leading me towards Norway, Cuba and Hawaii as near future destinations. I know I can’t afford it for awhile but I have long term dreams to visit the Galapagos, South Africa, Australia and Antarctica…
So many places… so little time…
The problem is the day dreaming and the planing. I am still very busy, getting myself involved with too much (per usual), but all I want to do is check pinterest, look at excursions, make lists and gooooo.
Thanks goodness I decided to move into teaching so that I have breaks to allow for this travel habit of mine!
Here’s hoping I can get some more trips in the near future!
Tell me where I should go next in the comments!
