goal 9: travel to 5 different places.

Out of the 10 goals I choose for 2013 there are two that were hands down my favorite. Two I joyfully surpassed more than any of the rest. Two that I will scratch onto my list {either typed out or in my head} for years and years and years to come.

Can you guess which two?

Read All The Books — and — Travel!

If I had my way with time and money {mostly money}, I would have loved to go to 5 places that I’d never been, preferably across the country or oversees, BUT, I had to be realistic with my travels and easy on my wallet.

Here are the 12 places {technically 10, since I went to NYC 3 TIMES!} I traveled to in 2013. All by car, with the exception of Denver which was, without a doubt, my favorite adventure of them all…

Travel 1 travel 2 travel 3 travel 4 travel 5ee's weddingconnecticut syracuse travel 6 travel 7 travel 8 travel 9

That’s the list. And was life ever rich and full.

I can’t wait to see where the future brings me.

The West Coast is already sketched in the plans for April– TRAVEL ABOUND 2014! Adventure awaits!


On a similar note,
