day 22: travel

travel. how did you travel in 2010? how and/or where would you like to travel next year?

for the record: this might be my favorite prompt thus far. i'm convinced that traveling is one of my love languages. :) let me begin by re-stating a favorite quote...

"the world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page." -St. Augustine

in 2010, i did my fair share of "reading" via jet-setting, road-tripping, planning, surprising, and celebrating. since i'm somewhat of a travel addict, i'm opting to simply list the places i found myself in 2010 and not provide any detail. otherwise, we'd be here all day.
  1. Asheville, NC
  2. Branson, MO
  3. St. Louis, MO
  4. Charlotte, NC
  5. Kansas City, MO
  6. Topeka, KS
  7. Fayetteville, AR
  8. Dallas, TX
  9. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
  10. Chattanooga, TN
  11. Lampe, MO
  12. Springfield, MO
  13. Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL
  14. Destin, FL
  15. Kearney, NE
  16. Lebanon, MO
  17. Jasper, AR
  18. Oxford, MS
  19. Winona, MO
  20. Republic, MO

in 2011, i'm planning for the following:

  1. New Orleans, LA
  2. Tacoma/Seattle, WA
  3. Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL
  4. Western Caribbean (Belize, Cozumel, Isla Roatan, Grand Cayman)
  5. Chapel Hill, NC
  6. New York City, NY
  7. Chicago, IL

i know for a fact that i'll add in some less expensive road trips in 2011, but those are the ones that will probably require flights and are therefore on my radar a little sooner. :) and i'm sure there will be quite the wedding craze again this year. it's that phase of life.

that pretty much covers the where. as for the how... i'll be hopping on planes, taking a cruise to celebrate sis's birthday, and i'm sure adding in a few road trips here and there. i always do. however, if anyone wants to loan me their private jet, i won't turn you down. ;)

i've got the travel bug,


live unashamedly. laugh uncontrollably. love unconditionally.
