Trip Announcement for 2012.

In 2011 I took my first big trip without my family and explored New York City. I saved and saved so I'd have plenty of money to spend and then spend 5 glorious days with my sweet friends exploring New York City for the very first time. I did the touristy thing, ate my way through the whole city (and a couple cupcakes), and even saw a broadway show on 'real' broadway. I shopped til I dropped and I came back exhausted but with a new found love for the kind of travel that doesn't have to do with work.



And so, I'm pleased to announce that my frequent flierness that lead me to New York on Airtran's dime last year has now earned me a freebie flight on Southwest and I think I've decided where I'm going to go with this one. I'd been mulling it over for a while because the city I've choosen I've been to before - but not since being a real adult and I think I'll appreciate it in a whole new way, this time. I talked to my Aunt about it over my birthday and she said come on...so I think it's now safe to say my big trip in 2012 will be to....



Washington, DC!


Get ready DC, you have no idea what's coming your way in 2012. This girl is ready to take the city by storm.


One of the things I appreciate most about this season of my life is that it has opened up opportunies to experice life more freely than ever before. I have a job I can still sneak away from for vacation (just not during event season, right?). I am racking up frequently flier points like I've never done before. And I've fallen in love with travel, for fun. I am so excited about my life and all the next year has to offer. Stay tuned.


Love,


B

You will love DC. I go once a year because I have a good friend that lives there. All of the museums are free! You must go to Serendipity in Georgetown...and Georgetown Cupcakes. That area is great for sweets and shopping. About an hour drive from DC is the Virginia Wine Country. You should look into that. You can also visit Luray Caverns while in that area. It a really neat cave to explore. And they have a garden maze that will make you feel like you are in Alice in Wonderland.

Oh, I love DC!! It's so fun, and there's SO MUCH to see and do. The best part is that all the Smithsonian museums are free!!

I would love to go to DC too. I have been about five times but all were either school trips or with my parents when I was younger. I think I would really appreciate it now!
