I'm a 37-year old Seattle girl who was bitten by the travel bug on my first tour of Europe in 2004. This personal blog follows my attempts to visit as many countries as I can, as often as my budget will allow. Since starting this blog in 2007, I've also worked as a freelance copywriter for an online travel publication. This only served to add even more must-see locations to my already extended list.
Follow me as I try to balance "real life" with exploring the world, all while trying to conquer a wickedly ironic case of homesickness.


It's decided: Maui!

We're going to Maui! And we're really splurging, at least for our budget. We're staying in Ka'anapali at the Hyatt Regency Maui. I'm a tiny bit nervous about 4 adult women in one room, but the same 4 of us have done it several times before; we were just much smaller at the time!

Now that the big decisions are made, it's time for the really fun part. I'm headed to Barnes and Noble for books galore to immerse myself in all that is Maui. I'm most excited to fulfill my dream of a surfing lesson. I'm also looking forward to ziplining and horseback riding. We're going to look into a snorkeling catamaran trip, as well, in hopes that my mom can swim with dolphins. My sister has tossed in the idea of ATVing, in which case I'll need a living will. Plus, we're renting a car, so the road to Hana (as well as everything in between!) is also an option. And who can forget about the best Hawaiian activity ever: doing nothing on the beach, with a slushy umbrella drink and a good book.

I must admit, even in my lazy excitement about a tropical getaway, it still doesn't pull on me like a European jaunt does. But that's okay; I'll never see the world going to the same places over and over again.

But I can return next spring! ;-)
