Travel on my mind

I transferred $300 of my last pay check into my Travel Fund. I'm going to put as much money as I can into that fund in the upcoming months so I can pay for:
  • a 2010 birthday trip I've already discussed on this blog. I am 95% sure that I want to go to Spain for this trip;
  • a cruise with my family;
  • a weekend trip at some point in 2010 to New York City;
  • any other travel opportunities that pop up from now until the end of 2010.

I still need to fulfill my summer goal of getting a passport. I can't procrastinate much longer on this because both major trips I want to take in 2010 are international trips. It's a sad but true fact that I was much more well-traveled as a child and teen than I am now, and I plan to remedy that next year. Travel is a fun, but expensive hobby that takes time to plan, but is worth it to me.

I lived in Seville, Spain for a year. It was one of the most beautiful and serene places I've been to on earth...and I've been to a lot of places. I had the opportunity to travel to other Spanish cities and I must say that of any country that I stopped through in Europe, I felt a deep connection to Spain...not because that's where I laid my head down but because it was just a down-to-earth place.

Just like you, I think travel is fun. I'll be taking back to the road to continue my international traveling starting next month. Check out my "Travel Plans" blog to see where I'll look to drop in at. Oh yeah, if you apply for that passport at the post office, you can get it back in 2 weeks if you pay a fee to expedite it.
