Travel Tuesday

I love, LOVE to travel. The majority of my trips have been in the states, with my first out of the country experience being to Turks and Caicos last summer. It’s addicting. I get the urge about every 3 months. I love the idea of immersing myself into different cultures. The best thing about traveling for me is doing it solo. Yes. Most of the time I travel alone.

The thought of doing things on my own time, without worrying about catering to someone else’ s preferences, is so very liberating. I love to take the roads less traveled. As an introvert by nature, I typically stray away from touristy places. I know what you’re thinking, and none of the places pictured were bustling with tourists when I went. Timing is EVERYTHING (and off-season traveling is WAY cheaper). I like quiet and relaxing. I can go to a bar and party at home. Adding that to my list of things to do would totally defeat the purpose of a vacation, in my opinion. I couldn’t really afford to do the typical road trips and Spring Break excursions that most undergrads did in college ( I worked 2 jobs and took 18 hours every semester). So I have been exploring my adventurous side for the last 3 or 4 years because I can afford to do it now.

The really great thing about traveling is you never know who you may meet. I made some really cool business connections while in Turks and Caicos, danced with a Swedish man and made friends with a model from Chicago by way of Somalia. Good times and many more still to be had.
