a year of travel
I love traveling. To anywhere. Especially if it’s somewhere I’ve never been.
The husband loves … making me happy! And so this year will be quite the year of travel.
We started off the year with a trip to New York in February to see the husband’s other woman. April brought a weekend trip to Gettysburg, even though it is just over an hour away. (If you do a ghost tour, skip the Farnworth house tour; also, be sure to get some fries at Hunt’s Battlefield Fries. And if you buy the CD audio-tour of the battlefield, the directions are really good up until about stop 12 … so pay attention!)
May took us to Texas, where we hit several of the hot-spots with the husband’s family: NASA in Houston (which is awesome, I got to sit in old mission control!), a UT graduation ceremony, caverns outside of San Antonio, the Alamo, the river walk, dinner with the husband’s bff, and Schlitterbahn. And all of that in 5 days!
June will take us to Oklahoma, to see the husband’s father. It’s a long overdue visit, and I’ll get to cross Oklahoma off my list of ‘states-I’ve-never-been-to’. 🙂
July is my spa trip, and at the end of the month we’ll be heading back to New York. Amtrak is having a fare sale, so we snagged cheap train tickets. And we finally cashed in our Holiday Inn points, so we’ll be enjoying a free stay. And with the show tickets the husband got for his birthday, it’ll make for a fun – and surprisingly cheap! – trip to the big city.
August is Leavenworth to visit my family. Not that they live there, but the dad decided we should have a family reunion some place fun. We’ll be there during the theater festival, and the mom has purchased tickets for us all to just about every play available – so we’ll be doing what we all enjoy best: sitting around …
August also brings us to Pennsylvania to see Taylor Swift.
And September is Italy!
And December is just chilling for our very first Christmas at home. Followed by a trip to Disneyworld to ring in the new year. If there’s any travel money left. And if I can convince the husband …
