So, in a few weeks, I will have spent two full months living in Italy. I thought that traveling out here would cure my curiosity of the world, so that when I returned to the states, I would have gotten it out of my system, and then I could proceed to settle into a career. And while I will be able to settle into a career, traveling will always be a part of me. It is who I am, it is what I do, what I love, and what makes me come alive.
I mean, in general, I am always on the prowl for new adventures and places to travel. I mean, I have gone to a Garlic Festival in New York, I have traveled to New Hampshire for a Seafood festival, and Maine for a Lobster Festival. And I do regular trips to Newport, Rhode Island and Salem, MA each year; I guess you could say that that is the advantage of living in New England, that everything is so close together.
Anyways, where are the places that I would like to go in the future? Too many places to count. Just look below:
2) New Zealand
7) Las Vegas
8) San Francisco
9) Aspen, Colorado
11) Costa Rica
12) And let’s see, all of South America.
But first, first and foremost, I need to find a job, and then I can workout how I am going to save for all these places. I will say, my experiences staying in hostels has not been half bad. I mean, I have met some pretty amazing people, the hostels have been clean, and they were in close proximity to the places that I wanted to see. I’ve made mazing friendships and met some awesome people through staying in hostels. I spent one night in a bed and breakfast, and that was a great experience. It was clean, it had a really homey vibe and feel. Hotel? Hotel what? I’ll be happy never staying in a hotel ever again. Traveling has opened my eyes and changed my world. It has done all of these things for the better.
No longer will I have to go out and eat with friends. They may enjoy eating out and clubbing, but for me, traveling is my priority. I want to see the world. I do not want to be just a spec.
