This has been a big year for me. And the end of 2014, I suppose. I did all kinds of things. I went to Slovenia with my dear mother. I graduated from college! I went on my first trip by myself. I visited one of my best friends out in Colorado. I went on my first road trip with another best friend. I booked my next trip. And I’ve kept this up!
I went to ten new countries!
Cahal Petch, San Ignacio, Belize
Somewhere in Slovenia
Bocas del Toro, Panama
I visited six new states!
Monteverde, Costa Rica
I crossed things off my bucket list!
Volcano boarding Zip Lining See Lava
San Pedro, Guatemala
Little Corn Island, Nicaragua
I added more things to it!
Hike Angels Landing
Actively learn Spanish
Go work in Australia
Write a book
Learn to cook more than pasta
Arches National Park, Utah
Albuquerque, New Mexico
I’ve learned some stuff about myself
I love making lists (did you notice that yet?)
I love searching flights and planning trips (did I mention that yet?)
I love when I first get to a new city (I know I mentioned that)
I am a shameless selfie taker (don’t mind me!)
Loud talkers bother me (yes, I can hear you, we all can hear you)
Loud chewers bother me even more (really, how are you chewing that loud?
Bugs don’t bother me as much as I thought (Until I encounter something bigger and closer to me)
Estes Park, Colorado
This next year has more in store for me, too and I can’t wait! I’ll be going to Taiwan and will just happen to be there during Chinese New Year! I didn’t even do that on purpose, but I’m glad I accidentally did. I’ll be working super hard on the beaches of the Philippines, exploring whatever I can manage in my time there, and then hopefully I’ll be going over to Thailand for about a month, which also happens to include Songkran, the Thai New Year!
I am still open to any and all suggestions on what to do, where to go, what to eat, all the stuff. Who knows what else the next year has to offer, but I am ready to find out.
