I get itchy feet if I stay in one place for too long. I’m also trying to get through college debt-free, and I have an income based almost solely on odd jobs. I’m sure you can guess how well that works out.
I’m a firm believer in the idea that if you pinch your pennies hard enough and wear hand-me-downs and bring sack lunches when you go on all-day excursions with your friends you will eventually save a few hundred extra dollars to travel with.
At the beginning of the summer my brother Ben and our friends Jon and Janessa took a road trip back east together and Ben went to the Faith Builders college student retreat and I was insanely jealous, but also out of money. So. I determined that at the end of the summer, when I had money, I would take an Eastern Trip.
Goodness me. SO many people that I like live back east.
I’m going to try to blog this trip, because travel is one of my favorite things to blog about. Also, because I haven’t been blogging much recently. My Instagram kind-of ate my blog this summer, not gonna lie. Mostly because I worked so intermittently that I’d do something fun and then not have time to post it because I was working. So I’d just Instagram it instead.
Instagram is a beautiful mysterious thing, and it’s finally gotten me into the habit of taking pictures, but ultimately blogging is my favorite. I like words.
