Here Goes: Travel Challenge

Around this time last year my friend had just returned from another trip abroad and I was achingly missing London. I would’ve done anything to randomly hop on a plane with a few of my London friends, Kiana, and Connor and just seen the rest of the world. Of course, I was a server at the time and my income fluctuated more than I wished it would and I was still in school. I told myself that every 6-8 weeks I would travel for the weekend. I would use airlines sales and specials to pick a place and my 36 Hours in U.S. and Canada book to highlight the important spots in each city. I never did it.

A year later I’m starting my challenge over. I don’t have any idea what I’ll be doing after my camp counselor job ends this summer. I have no idea how I’m going to pay for all this. I’m taking 4 classes online this Fall. I’m listing all the excuses for not going out there now, so that I can’t use them later.

Every 6-8 weeks I will travel somewhere in the United States (maybe Canada if I feel like splurging) with the ultimate goal to end up back in Europe next summer with my three best study abroad friends. The challenge with start in early August and my first stop is Chicago. I will post my best tips on scheduling flights and hotels (if needed) and what spots in each city I want to see. As of right now, I’m having my friend Daniella, who lives in Chicago, give me the locals tour of the city - with a stop at Wrigley of course. 

Wish me luck ladies and gents.

Here Goes Nothing.
