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.


Airfare booked

It's official; we're definitely going to the US East Coast in September! Flying into DC, flying out of Boston. In between, we're seeing Monticello, Philadelphia, Amish Country, New York City, and Kennebunkport. T minus five months and counting!

For the first time, our airfare is entirely mileage redemption. Six open-jaws tickets for three people. Grand total came to 120,000 miles and $15 USD. Of course, it took us literally years to earn all those miles, but it's good to know it eventually pays off!

Like a crack addict taking another hit, I'm giddy knowing I officially have a trip to look forward to. Buying airfare does that to me. Besides, there's a delicious freedom about nothing other than the flights being planned right now. I think I'm going to sit back and enjoy the feeling for awhile...

Hurrah! Well done on earning yourself a free trip!

We have to move our trip to next year, as Dave's band have been asked to play a quite big festival, and it was one or the other.

I read about a really good travelling bag the other day, I will send you a link!
