2015 Review & 2016 Goals

2015 Review & 2016 Goals

We made it; it’s almost a new year, full of new opportunities and adventures!  This year was pretty amazing in terms of travel!  I am by no means a nomad by trade, however, as a part-time traveler, I’m proud of the trips I was able to take in 2015.  There were ups and downs, and lessons to be learned, but I’m very happy with the year I had and am excited for next year as well.  Here are some of the…

City by the Bay – Day 3

City by the Bay – Day 3

On our second day waking up in San Francisco, we were still stuck with our Chicago time zone.  We went down to the kitchen in the hostel for the complimentary breakfast, which consisted of assorted bagels, cream cheese, fruit, coffee and tea and juice.  The kitchen and dining room were big and bright and welcoming.  I really enjoyed the hostel, and would definitely stay at a HI Hostel again.  We checked out early to rent a car and drive out…

My 26th birthday is tomorrow, December 4.  I will be entering into the mid-to-late twenties bracket of life.  I feel pretty good about it, actually.  I’m only having a quarter-life crisis every other day, and I’m trying not to question what I’m even doing with my life more than once a week.  I’m kidding…mostly.  I am really very grateful for everything I’ve been able to accomplish in the past year, with this blog, travelling, and other miscellaneous personal accomplishments.  However, I…
